1911 M116 Sporting Life Ty Cobb - Pastel

Starting Bid - $200.00, Sold For - $1,997.50

Graded VG-EX 4 by PSA. Bright and crisp example of Ty Cobb from the prized 1911 M116 Sporting Life set features a classic portrait image. M116s have always been highly appreciated by collectors for their distinctive style and rarity relative to the more commonly seen tobacco cards of the era. Ty Cobb, of course, is the key card of the series. The corners are square with just a slight hint of even wear. We also detect a hint of light foxing. The advertising on the reverse for Sporting Life is printed boldly in blue. The centering is ever so slightly low towards the bottom border. This is a very attractive mid-grade example of one of Ty Cobb's most classic cards. SMR value for the assigned grade is $850. Reserve $200. Estimate $400/$800. SOLD FOR $1,997.50
