Graded EX-MT 6 by PSA. Extremely high grade example of this classic tobacco card of Hall of Famer Ty Cobb. Of the 474 Green Background Cobbs listed in the PSA population report to date, only sixteen have received an EX-MT 6 designation. The Green Background pose has long been considered the rarest of the four poses of Cobb in the T206 set. The offered example has flawless registration and vibrant colors, a clean front and back (one insignificant background mark on front), centering high and slightly toward the left, and four square corners displaying just a hint of wear. A very striking example of one Cobb's most popular cards from the premier tobacco issue of the 1910 era. Sweet Caporal advertising on reverse. Reserve $1,500. Estimate $3,000/$5,000. SOLD FOR $14,100
