Tobacco Card Collection Including Ty Cobb (43)
Starting Bid - $400.00, Sold For - $2,185.00
Collection of 43 tobacco cards (40 different plus 3 duplicates) include 27 T205, 15 T206, and one T207. Quality assortment with a high concentration of key cards, highlighted by a T206 Ty Cobb (red bkgd). Hall of Famers and scarcities include: T205: Barger (partial B, Vg), Clarke (Vg), James Collins (Vg), Duffy (Vg), Graham (Cubs) PSA EX-MT 6 (OC), Huggins (Vg-Ex), McGraw (Vg-Ex), Vaughn (Gd), and Wheat (Vg). T206: Two Bresnahan (Bat, both Vg-Ex), Chance (Bat, Vg), two Chance (both Port Yellow bkgd, Vg-Ex and Good), Ty Cobb (red bkgd, Polar Bear back) PSA EX 5 (MC), and Evers (bat Chicago, Gd-Vg). One T207: Gainor (rare Napoleon ad on reverse, Vg-Ex). The T206 Ty Cobb is a very attractive example which has received an MC qualifier due to a very slight top to bottom miscut, which provides an extra large top border, but which takes away a very thin sliver along the bottom of the "Cobb, Detroit" identification text. The balance of the collection (27 cards) is commons and range in grade from Vg to Vg-Ex. Total 43 cards. Reserve $400. Estimate $800/$1,200. SOLD FOR $2,185.00
