1909-1911 T206 Ty Cobb SGC-Graded Collection (4)
Starting Bid - $1,500.00 , Sold For - $5,875.00
Complete set of all four Ty Cobb poses from the classic T206 White Border series, each graded and encapsulated by SGC. 1) Ty Cobb Green background portrait (Sweet Caporal reverse) graded VG/EX 50. The Green Background pose has long been considered the rarest of the four poses of Cobb in the T206 set. Vg-Ex card with no creases. Centered to the left (approx. 30/70 L/R), evenly rounded corners, and perfectly clean reverse. 2) Ty Cobb Red background portrait (Tolstoi reverse) graded VG 40. Bright and crisp, with a striking red background, and no creases. The card has a Vg-Ex appearance but has been downgraded by SGC due to a tiny corner chip in the upper left. 3) Ty Cobb Bat off shoulder pose (Sweet Caporal reverse) graded EX 60. Centered to the left (approx. 30/70 L/R), with vibrant colors. This is a gorgeous card, extremely clean both front and back, with four square corners showing just a hint of wear. 4) Ty Cobb Bat on shoulder pose (Sweet Caporal reverse) graded VG/EX 50. Slight miscut, with a very large top border (showing just a hint of the "Cobb, Detroit" identification from the card above on the sheet), four square corners displaying just a hint of wear, and a perfectly clean reverse. No creases. These are very attractive mid-grade examples with great eye-appeal. For the Cobb collector not interested in paying a king's ransom for cards in higher grade, but still wants very respectable original 1910-era cards of Cobb, or the T206 set builder seeking to fill in these four big slots, this collection presents an exceptional opportunity and represents an extraordinary value. Four very attractive cards (one of each pose) of the "Georgia Peach" from the most popular set of the era. These classics are rarely offered as a set. The equivalent SMR value for three of the four cards (not including the red portrait grading VG 40, as SMR does not provide a guide value for this grade) is $5,300. Total 4 cards. Reserve $1,500. Estimate $3,000/$5,000+. SOLD FOR $5,875.00
