Very presentable low-grade example of the key card from one of the rarest and most condition-sensitive of all 1910 tobacco issues, the 1914 Piedmont Art Stamp series. The design of Piedmont Art Stamps is based closely on the design of T205 Gold Borders. Piedmont issued these fragile gum-backed stamps one per package. Because of their thin stock, perforated edges, and intended use (to be glued into albums), they rarely survive without serious damage, especially to their backs. Offered is the ultimate example of this issue, a Ty Cobb. The image of Cobb, of course, is very familiar, as it is identical to that used in the T205 Gold Border issue. This example is perfectly centered, with spectacular colors. Graded POOR 10 by SGC, this example shows several horizontal creases, with the reverse displaying paper loss along the left side and a pencil notation. This is a relatively affordable, yet still very presentable, example of this significant rarity for the type or Cobb collector. Reserve $300. Estimate (open).
