Graded GOOD 2 by PSA. Very attractive lower-grade example of this classic tobacco card of Hall of Famer Ty Cobb. The Green Background pose has long been considered the rarest of the four poses of Cobb in the T206 set. The offered example has virtually flawless registration and vibrant colors, with even corner wear and centering slightly toward the bottom border. Presenting as Excellent from the front, a tape residue stain on the reverse accounts for the technically accurate assigned grade. Piedmont 350 advertising reverse. A very attractive example of one Cobb's most popular cards from the premier tobacco issue of the 1910 era. Reserve $300. Estimate $500/$1,000+.
