Graded VG 40 by SGC. Very attractive 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. The offered example has an extremely bold red background, outstanding registration, honest corner wear, centering toward the right, and moderate surface soiling. The Sweet Caporal reverse is boldly printed with a crease across the upper right corner. This is a solid mid-grade 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 $300. Estimate $500+.
