Graded EX 60 by SGC. One of only three examples graded by SGC at this level with none higher! 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 just slightly to the bottom, and light, even corner wear (a bit more wear to the upper left). Boldly printed Polar Bear advertisement on the reverse. Light tobacco staining (a natural occurrence with Polar Bear backs) is visible on the front and back. This is an outstanding example of one of the key cards of Ty Cobb from the most popular set of the era. Reserve $1,000. Estimate $2,500+.
