Graded NM-MT 8 (OC) by PSA. Extremely attractive high-grade example of this classic gum card of Hall of Famer Ty Cobb. The Sport Kings is one of Cobb's most popular and majestic cards. Being the No. 1 card in the set, this card naturally gravitated to the top of the stack, exposing it to extra wear and handling, and thus making high-grade examples even more difficult to find than most other Sport Kings and other Cobb cards. This stunning example is perfectly bright, crisp, and clean, with brilliant colors, flawless registration, four sharp corners, and centered 90/10 left to right. The reverse of the card is also perfectly clean, with a bold green text centered to the far left. The SMR lists a value of $2,200 for PSA EX-MT 6, $4,750 for PSA NM 7, and a value of $15,000 for PSA NM-MT 8. This card is difficult to value in that we believe it is very accurately graded and, as stated by the label, it is in NM-MT condition, yet it is appropriately qualified for centering. Whatever the value, this is a stunning card. Reserve $500. Estimate (open).
