Graded VG-EX 4 by PSA. Striking example of this classic tobacco card of Hall of Famer Ty Cobb. The Green Background pose has long been considered the rarest of the four poses of Cobb in the T206 set. Cobb's portrait contrasts sharply against the deep green background. Flawless registration, no creases, clean both front and back, centered 40/60 left to right, even corner wear. Sweet Caporal reverse. This is a very attractive Vg-Ex example of one of the key cards from the premier tobacco issue of the 1910 era. SMR value is $2,750. Reserve $500. Estimate $1,000/$2,000+. SOLD FOR $3,259
