Graded NM-MT 8 by Global Authority. This is a very attractive highly graded example of one of the four classic poses of Ty Cobb from the T206 White Borders series. The T206 Ty Cobb â€œbat off shoulderâ€ pose is one of the most popular of all T206s, and one of the most highly regarded of all Cobb cards. This example has a particularly bold image, which really "jumps" from the card, and extremely vibrant colors. In our opinion, this card has been trimmed, though someone else could have a different opinion. Perfectly centered. This is very sharp-looking card; extremely clean, both front and back, with four razor-sharp corners. Sweet Caporal advertising on the reverse. Our consignor paid $3,700 for this card at auction a couple years ago (in 2010). The SMR value for a PSA NM-MT 8 is $17,500. Reserve $1,000. Estimate (open).
