Graded VG/EX 50 by SGC (submitted by REA). Crisp, clean, very attractive mid-grade example of this classic tobacco card of Hall of Famer Ty Cobb. The Red Background pose has long been considered one of the most classic of all Ty Cobb cards. Bright and clean, both front and back, with a bold red background, no creases, centering slightly toward the left, and light wear to the corners. Well-centered Piedmont reverse shows a small surface abrasion that caused the disappearance of the "F" in Factory No. 25. This is a very attractive example of one of Cobb's most famous cards from the premier tobacco issue of the 1910 era that, while not costing a fortune, is and will always be a true vintage-card collecting classic. Reserve $500. Estimate $1,000+.
