Graded VG 3 by PSA. A very attractive example of this classic tobacco card of Hall of Famer Ty Cobb, with a Sovereign back. Sovereign is a scarce back, certainly not in the same league as Drum or Uzit, but very unusual and seen far less often than the standard Piedmont or Sweet Caporal advertising backs. The T206 Ty Cobb bat-off-shoulder pose is one of the key cards in the set. Bright and crisp, with bold colors, light wear to the corners, and near-perfect centering. The Sovereign reverse is clean with no tobacco stains. A light horizontal crease and light indentation lines across the corners account for the assigned grade. This is a very attractive example of the "Georgia Peach" from the most popular set of the era. Reserve $300. Estimate $500/$1,000+.
