Graded GOOD+ 35 by SGC. Clean and attractive example of this classic tobacco card of Hall of Famer Ty Cobb. The Green Background pose has long been considered the rarest of the four poses of Cobb in the T206 set. The colors are bright, and Cobb’s image is perfectly focused against the bold green background. The Piedmont advertising reverse is boldly printed in blue and entirely clean. Even corner rounding and a light wrinkle across the surface account for the assigned grade. This card provides an excellent opportunity to acquire an appealing yet relatively affordable alternative to a far more expensive higher-grade example of this classic Ty Cobb card. Reserve $400. Estimate $1,000+.
