Graded VG/EX 50 by SGC. Exceptional 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 a flawless portrait set against a bold green background and perfect colors; it is bright and clean, both front and back, free of all creases, with four strong corners showing hints of wear at the tips. The card is slightly overgraded in our opinion due to centering almost entirely to the top. It is still a great-looking card. Boldly printed Piedmont 150 advertising on reverse. This is an extremely attractive mid-grade example of one of the key cards from the premier tobacco issue of the 1910 era. Reserve $500. Estimate $1,000/$2,000+.
