Graded EX 5 by PSA. Exceptionally attractive high-grade example of one of the four classic poses of Ty Cobb from the T206 White Borders series. The T206 portrait of Ty Cobb set against a brilliant red background is considered by many collectors to be his single most classic card. It is one of the most recognizable and popular of all vintage baseball cards. This card is bright and crisp, both front and back, with a deep, red background, flawless registration, near-perfect centering, and light corner wear. The Piedmont advertisement on the reverse is boldly printed and centered slightly to the right. This is an extremely desirable grade for this classic card, providing a relatively affordable alternative to a far more expensive super high-grade example, without compromising anything in the way of eye-appeal. Reserve $1,000. Estimate $2,000/$3,000+.
