Attractive low-grade Ty Cobb (red background) card from the legendary T206 White Border set. The T206 portrait of Ty Cobb set against a brilliant red background is considered by many collectors to be his single most classic card. It is one of the most recognizable and popular of all vintage baseball cards. This is a bright, crisp, and clean example, with honest wear to the corners, brilliant color, near-perfect registration, and an extremely bold red background. Presenting as Vg+ from the front, this card has been graded POOR 10 by SGC due to paper loss on the reverse. This example illustrates that even today a collector, with patience, can still obtain some of the most noteworthy cards in presentable condition on a relatively modest budget. Reserve $200.
