Presented is a low-grade example of one of Ty Cobb's most classic cards, with a very desirable American Beauty 460 advertising reverse. American Beauty is a scarce back, certainly not in the same league as Drum or Uzit, but very unusual and seen far less often than most other T206 advertising backs. The T206 Ty Cobb bat-off-shoulder pose is one of the key cards in the set. Graded POOR 10 by SGC due to heavy creasing, severe corner rounding, and a small piece missing from the lower left corner. The American Beauty advertising on reverse is boldly printed and well centered. Rarely seen American Beauty 460 example of this iconic Ty Cobb tobacco card from the T206 White Border series. Reserve $200. Estimate (open).
