Very attractive example of the key classic Ty Cobb card from the T202 Hassan Triple Folders set. The "Ty Cobb Steals Third" center-panel card, with Ty Cobb and Hugh Jennings on the end panels, is the premier card featuring Cobb in the T202 set. In the eyes of most collectors, this is the card that defines the T202 set, the classic combination of center and end panels. This very attractive example has brilliant colors and four square corners. It is technically very modest in grade due to having four pinholes, but otherwise the card displays as Excellent. A rare opportunity to acquire an extremely affordable yet remarkably attractive example of one of tobacco card collecting's great classics. Interesting provenance note: These cards were personally saved as a young man by the grandfather of our consignor! Reserve $100. Estimate $200+. SOLD FOR $533
