Graded EX 5 by PSA. A very attractive example of one of Ty Cobb's most striking and sought-after cards, from one of the most popular sets of the 1930s. Bright and clean, both front and back, with a flawless yellow background framing a crisp, perfectly registered image of Cobb. The card has light, even corner wear (a bit more to the lower left), no creases, and is centered slightly to the right. Sport Kings is one of Cobb’s most popular and majestic cards. Being the number-one card in the set, this card naturally gravitated to the top of the stack, usually exposing it to extra wear and handling, and thus making high-grade examples even more difficult to find than most other Sport Kings and other Cobb cards. This is a very attractive example of this classic Cobb card, with exceptional eye-appeal. Reserve $500. Estimate $1,000+.
