Graded GOOD 30 by SGC. An attractive example of this classic tobacco card of Hall of Famer Ty Cobb, with the Piedmont Cigarettes back. The Green Background portrait pose has long been considered the rarest of the four poses of Cobb in the T206 set. Cobb's portrait contrasts sharply against the bold green background. Flawless registration, light creasing, centered a hint to the top, with moderate corner rounding. The reverse displays bold blue print and light tobacco staining. This is a very presentable modestly-graded example of one of the key cards from the premier tobacco issue of the 1910 era. Reserve $300. Estimate $1,000+.
