Graded VG/EX 50 by SGC. Attractive mid-grade example of one of the four classic poses of Ty Cobb from the T206 White Borders series, with a Sovereign back. Sovereign is a scarce back, certainly not in the same league as Drum or Uzit, but very unusual and seen far less often the standard Piedmont or Sweet Caporal advertising backs. The card displays a deep, red background, perfect registration, and excellent centering. Corner wear (particularly to the upper right) accounts for the assigned grade. This is an extremely desirable grade for this classic card, providing a relatively affordable alternative to a far more expensive high-grade example, without compromising on all of the most important qualities of the card. Reserve $500. Estimate $1,000+.
