1922 E120 American Caramel Ty Cob (Cobb)
Starting Bid - $200.00, Sold For - $696.00
Graded VG+ 3.5 by GAI. E120 American Caramel of Ty Cobb, one of the two keys cards from this distinctive early 1920s caramel issue. Cobb is featured in full uniform in a throwing pose. It is interesting to note that Cobb's name is misspelled as "Cob" on this card. In 1922 Cobb stepped up to the plate 526 times and batted an extraordinary .401, second only to George Sisler (.420 average). Maybe if he had had a better year they would have spelled his name correctly! The offered card is bright and clean, both front and back, with even corner wear, a single crease in the lower left corner, and centered 70/30 left to right. This is an attractive mid-grade example of Cobb issued from one of his best hitting seasons. Reserve $200. Estimate $400/$600. SOLD FOR $696.00
