Graded VG/EX 50 by SGC. Exceptionally attractive example of one of the four classic poses of Ty Cobb from the T206 White Border series. The card presents with a crisp image, near-perfect registration, centering slightly to the left, and light, even corner wear. Boldly printed and clean Polar Bear advertisement on the reverse. Light tobacco staining (a natural occurrence with Polar Bear backs) and a light back wrinkle account for the assigned grade. This is an extremely desirable grade for this classic card, and this particular example is additionally noteworthy for its popular advertising back. Reserve $500. Estimate $1,000+.
