1909-1911 T206 Ty Cobb PSA-Graded Collection (4)
Starting Bid - $1,000, Sold For - $3,231
Complete set of all four Ty Cobb poses from the classic T206 White Border series, each graded and encapsulated by PSA. 1) Ty Cobb Green Background portrait (Piedmont reverse) graded VG 3. The Green Background pose has long been considered the rarest of the four poses of Cobb in the T206 set. This is a very attractive Vg card with no creases and evenly rounded corners, centered to the top (approx. 30/70 T/B), and a perfectly clean reverse. 2) Ty Cobb Red Background portrait (Polar Bear reverse) graded GOOD 2. Bright and clean, a few creases and heavily rounded corners. We grade this card Fr-Gd. 3) Ty Cobb Bat Off Shoulder pose (Sovereign reverse) graded GOOD 2. Very nice looking card for the grade, centered to the top (approx. 40/60 T/B), with rounded corners and a couple of creases. 4) Ty Cobb Bat On Shoulder pose (Sweet Caporal reverse) graded PR-FR 1. The front has a Vg-Ex appearance but this card has been downgraded by PSA due to paper loss in the center of the back. No creases. These are very attractive low-grade examples with great eye-appeal, highlighted by a Green Background portrait Cobb in relatively strong VG condition. For the Cobb collector who is not interested in paying a king's ransom for cards in higher grade, but still wants very respectable original 1910-era cards of Ty Cobb, or the T206 set builder seeking to fill in these four big slots, this collection presents an exceptional opportunity and potentially represents an extraordinary value. Four very attractive cards (one of each pose) of the "Georgia Peach" from the most popular set of the era. Total 4 cards. Reserve $1,000. Estimate $2,000/$3,000. SOLD FOR $3,231
