Graded GOOD+ 2.5 by PSA (submitted by REA). Presented is one of vintage-card collecting's most recognizable icons and one of the key cards of the 1915 E145 Cracker Jack series: #30 Ty Cobb. Besides being the second most valuable card in the set (behind Joe Jackson), it is also one of the most desirable and striking of all Ty Cobb cards. This example displays bold colors, small creases across the top corners, evenly rounded corners, and centering slightly toward the top. The reverse is generally clean, with a couple areas of discoloration around two corners. This is an attractive example of card #30 Ty Cobb, in an extremely desirable midgrade. The classic Cracker Jack set is considered by many to be the most beautiful card set ever issued. The E145 Ty Cobb has always been and will always be in high demand, especially a relatively affordable midgrade example such as this that presents better than its technical grade. Reserve $500. Estimate $1,000/$2,000+.
