Graded EX+ 5.5 by PSA. High-grade PSA example of what is universally recognized as one of Cobb's most striking cards. The Red Background pose has long been considered one of the great classics in the T206 set. The card is bright and crisp, both front and back, with a deep, red background, light corner wear, and centered slightly to the left. Piedmont advertisement on the reverse. This card heralds from a collection assembled in the 1970s that has not seen the light of day until now. This is a very sharp-looking high-grade example of one of the key cards from the premier tobacco issue of the 1910 era. Reserve $500. Estimate $1,000/$1,500.
