Graded GOOD+ 2.5 by PSA. Stunning modestly graded Ty Cobb (red background) card from the legendary T206 White Border set. The T206 portrait of Ty Cobb set against a brilliant red background is considered by many collectors to be his single most classic card. It is one of the most recognizable and popular of all vintage baseball cards. This is a bright, crisp, and clean example, with even corner wear, brilliant color, perfect registration, and an extremely bold red background. Presenting as Excellent from the front, the boldly printed Piedmont reverse exhibits subtle evidence of onetime storage in a photo album. A couple tiny spots of paper loss and very faint lines of adhesive residue detract little from the overall visual appeal of this card. This example illustrates that even today a collector, with patience, can still obtain some of the most noteworthy cards in outstanding condition on a relatively modest budget. A superb example of this classic Ty Cobb card! Reserve $300. Estimate $500+.
