1911 T3 Turkey Red #9 Ty Cobb PSA EX 5
Starting Bid - $5,000.00 , Sold For - $15,275.00
Graded EX 5 by PSA. Extraordinary high-grade T3 Ty Cobb example! Only five examples have ever been graded higher by PSA. The T3 Turkey Red is one of Ty Cobb's most impressive and classic cards, and this is easily one of the finest examples we have ever seen. Cobb, of course, is the key Hall of Famer in the Turkey Red set, which is universally recognized as one of the most substantial and beautiful sets ever produced. This extraordinary example of Ty Cobb is in strong Excellent condition. The image area is flawless, with extremely bright, bold colors, perfect registration, and perfect centering, with totally unblemished borders, a flawless surface, and with only the lightest, even corner wear. Perfectly bright and clean both front and back. The boldly printed reverse is also essentially flawless and features the checklist for the first seventy-five cards in the set. The card is bordering on Ex-Mt, but the tiny corner creases in the upper left (visible only from the reverse) are likely responsible for the EX 5 grade. T3s rarely survive in this high grade, let alone examples of the key stars of the set such as Ty Cobb. This is an amazing example of one of the key cards of the era, worthy of the finest set of T3s in the world, and would be a worthy highlight in any world-class collection of Hall of Famers or collection of the hobby's most revered and classic cards. Reserve $5,000. Estimate $10,000/$15,000. SOLD FOR $15,275.00
