Graded VG+ 45 by SGC. Ty Cobb card from the T205 Gold Border set, one of the most popular of all 1910-era tobacco issues. This is a very pleasing example of one of card collecting's most classic cards, from what is perhaps card collecting's single most condition-sensitive issue. Cobb is not just the most valuable card in the set, it also one of the best known and popular of all Ty Cobb cards. This example displays with bold, bright color, flawless registration, and strong centering. Honest corner wear and a couple light wrinkles are responsible for the assigned grade. The Piedmont advertising back is boldly printed and centered slightly to the right. One of the great things about card collecting is that some of the hobby's greatest classics can be found in various grades and nice examples can sometimes be purchased without spending a fortune! This card provides an excellent opportunity to acquire an appealing, yet relatively affordable, alternative to a far more expensive higher-grade example of this classic Ty Cobb card. Reserve $300. Estimate $500/$1,000+.
