The offered example has flawless registration, a crisp image, centering to the top, and natural even rounding to the corners. Free of any creases. Clean both front and back with a boldly printed Sweet Caporal reverse. This is an outstanding example of one of Ty Cobb's all-time classic cards. Reserve $1,000. Estimate $2,000+.
