Graded GOOD 30 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 is also one of the most well known and popular of all Ty Cobb cards. This example displays with bold, bright color, evenly rounded corners, a heavy horizontal crease across the middle of the card, and centering to the left. The Piedmont advertising back is centered to the far 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 $200. Estimate $400+.
