Graded VG 40 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. This card is not just the most valuable one in the set, it also one of the most well known and popular of all Ty Cobb cards. This example displays with bold, bright color, slightly off-register color alignment, a light crease across the lower right corner, and centering ever-so-slightly to the left. The delicate gold borders show minor chipping along the right edge and more considerable loss at the corners. The Piedmont advertising back is entirely clean and centered well to the right. This card provides an excellent opportunity to acquire an appealing and relatively affordable alternative to a far more expensive higher-grade example of this classic Ty Cobb card. Reserve $300. Estimate $500/$1,000+.
