1909-1911 T206 Ty Cobb Bat Off Shoulder PSA NM-MT 8 (Old Mill)
Starting Bid - $5,000.00, Sold For - $29,625.00
Graded NM-MT 8 by PSA. Of the 738 examples of the T206 Ty Cobb bat-off-shoulder pose cards graded in the history of PSA, only five examples have been graded higher. Although PSA has just recently started noting the brand advertisements for T206s, of the Ty Cobb cards with this pose that are designated in the population report as having the Old Mill advertising reverse, the next closest example is an EX 5. Extremely highly-graded PSA example of what is universally recognized as one of Cobb's most striking cards! The T206 Ty Cobb bat-off-shoulder pose is one of the most recognizable cards in all of card collecting. The offered high-grade PSA example has vibrant colors and near-flawless registration. Extremely crisp and clean, both front and back, centered very slightly toward the top left (approximately 55/45), with four sharp corners. The top border slopes ever so slightly down to the right, which suggests the possibility of a slight trim. Boldly printed Old Mill advertising on reverse. An extremely attractive high-grade example of one of the key cards from the premier tobacco issue of the 1910 era. This T206 Cobb bat-off-shoulder pose would be a significant addition to any PSA Registry T206, Hall of Famer, or Ty Cobb card collection. SMR value is $17,500. Reserve $5,000. Estimate $10,000+. SOLD FOR $29,625.00
