Graded VG-EX+ 4.5 by PSA. This is a stunning card! Spectacular high-grade example of Hall of Famer Ty Cobb in a batting pose from the highly desirable E90-1 American Caramel series, one of Cobb's most beautifully designed cards and one of the key cards from the set. This classic 1910-era caramel card is widely recognized by collectors as one of Cobb’s most striking cards, but is rarely found this nice. This is a beautiful example with extremely strong eye-appeal. Cobb’s image is boldly set against the vibrant multicolor background. The card is almost perfectly centered, with a flawlessly bright and clean surface, and with just the slightest hint of wear to the four square corners. The reverse is also boldly printed and entirely clean (except for a small age spot at the top border, mentioned strictly for the sake of accuracy). This card is in magnificent condition for any 1910-era card, let alone for a caramel card, which because they were issued with candy, one card per package, tend to survive in lesser condition than their more common tobacco-card counterparts. This is an exceptional high-grade example of one of Cobb’s most desirable cards from the premier “E” card issue, and one that would be a highlight in any extremely high quality classic, Hall of Fame, E90-1, or Ty Cobb card collection. Reserve $1,000. Estimate $2,000/$3,000+.
