Graded EX 60 by SGC. The T206 portrait of Ty Cobb set against a green background has long been considered the rarest of the four poses of Cobb in the T206 set. It is one of the most recognizable and popular of all vintage baseball cards. Presented is a bright, crisp, clean example, with light corner wear (more wear on the upper left), perfect registration, and centered slightly to the left. The Piedmont ad on the reverse is very clean. This is a solid high-grade example of one of the key cards from the premier tobacco issue of the 1910 era. Reserve $2,500. Estimate $5,000+.
