Very presentable example of one of the four classic poses of Ty Cobb from the T206 White Borders series, with an Old Mill back. Old Mill is a scarce back, certainly not in the same league as Drum or Uzit, but unusual and seen far less often the standard Piedmont or Sweet Caporal advertising backs. The card is centered slightly toward the bottom right, with a deep, red background, bold colors, slightly off-register color alignment, and even wear to the corners. Multiple creases account for the SGC-assigned grade of FAIR 20. This is a presentable example of this classic card, providing a relatively affordable alternative to a far more expensive high-grade example. Reserve $300. Estimate $500+.
