Graded VG 40 by SGC. Very attractive, modestly graded 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, centering slightly to the right, and even wear to the corners. Downgraded due to a crease across the upper right corner and slightly off-register color alignment. Clean Sweet Caporal reverse centered to the left. 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 $400. Estimate $1,000+.
