Graded VG-EX 4 by PSA. Only five examples graded higher by PSA (three PSA EX 5s and two EX-MT 6s). E120 American Caramel of Ty Cobb, one of the two keys cards from this distinctive (and underrated) early 1920s caramel issue, which is of all the greater importance as the largest and most comprehensive set of the era. Cobb is featured in full uniform in a throwing pose. It is interesting to note that Cobb's name is misspelled as "Cob" on this card. In 1922 Cobb stepped up to the plate 526 times and batted an extraordinary .401, second only to George Sisler (.420 average). Maybe if he had had a better year they would have spelled his name correctly! The offered card is bright and clean, both front and back, with light corner wear, a single crease to the left of Cobb's image (hidden in the ornate design), and a small spot in the upper left corner of the reverse. This is an attractive mid-grade example of Cobb from a classic 1920s set issued during one of his greatest hitting seasons. Reserve $200. Estimate $400/$800. SOLD FOR $940
