1909-1911 T206 Ty Cobb Bat Off Shoulder - Rare Uzit Back

Starting Bid - $1,000.00, Sold For - $17,775.00

Graded GOOD 2 by PSA. Bat-off-shoulder pose of Hall of Famer Ty Cobb with extremely rare Uzit back. Very presentable image of Cobb with bold colors. Various flaws that cause the card to grade modestly include rounded corners, light creasing, and a few light stains (a small stain that is a little darker in the upper left), but these are not particularly distracting and the card presents very nicely. The back is even better: A boldly printed Uzit advertisement appears on the reverse. All Uzit backs are great rarities, but this card is all the more interesting because it features Ty Cobb and is the premier T206 card with an Uzit back. This is the only pose of Cobb in the T206 set which was printed with an Uzit advertising back. It is also interesting to note while the red background portrait card of Ty Cobb with an advertisement for Ty Cobb Tobacco (of which approximately a dozen are known) is universally recognized as one of the most significant and valuable of all tobacco card rarities, the Uzit back T206 Ty Cobb is actually even slightly rarer, with literally only several examples known to exist. This example is new to the hobby and is the highlight of a newly discovered original-owner T206 collection. An incredible rarity featuring Hall of Famer Ty Cobb from the classic T206 set. Reserve $1,000. Estimate $2,500++.
SOLD FOR $17,775.00
