1911 T3 Turkey Red #9 Ty Cobb PSA EX 5

Starting Bid - $2,500.00, Sold For - $10,665.00

Graded EX 5 by PSA. Only eight examples have ever been graded higher by PSA. The T3 Turkey Red is one of Ty Cobb's most impressive and classic cards. 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. The image area on the offered card is flawless, with extremely bright, bold colors, and perfect registration. The card is well centered with a flawless surface, free of wrinkles and displaying light, even corner wear. Two small stains are present in the bottom border but do not detract from the boldly illustrated image of Cobb. The reverse is clean and features the checklist for the first seventy-five cards in the set along with an advertisement at the bottom. T3s rarely survive in this high grade, let alone examples of the key stars of the set such as Ty Cobb. This is an attractive example of one of the key cards of the era, worthy of the finest set of T3s in the world, and would be a highlight in any world-class collection of Hall of Famers or collection of the hobby's most revered and classic cards. SMR is $12,000. Reserve $2,500. Estimate $5,000+.
SOLD FOR $10,665.00
