Graded NM 7 by PSA. Only five examples have ever been graded higher by PSA (of the sixty-six examples graded to date). Stunning high-grade example of one of the five Ty Cobb cards in the highly regarded 1912 T202 Hassan Triple Folders series, featuring Cobb on both an end panel and center panel. The center panel features Cobb sliding into third base. This is a beautiful card! The offered example is almost perfectly centered, with snow-white borders, brilliant, bold colors, and four sharp corners. Crisp and clean, both front and back. There is a subtle irregular factory cut along the top and bottom edges (as made and mentioned strictly for the sake of accuracy). T202 Triple Folders are one of the most condition-sensitive of all card issues, as well as one of card collecting's most popular and classic sets. Because of their unique design, with folding end-panels, they are particularly difficult to find in high grade. As indicated by the PSA Population Report, T202s are virtually nonexistent in Near Mint or better condition. Of the 10,071 T202s graded to date, only 342 have ever been graded higher by PSA. This is an extraordinary high-grade example that would be a worthy highlight addition to any T202 set or collection, or any high-quality Ty Cobb or classic prewar Hall of Famer card collection. Reserve $2,000. Estimate $4,000++.
