Graded VG 40 by SGC. Very 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, and outstanding centering, with light corner wear and slight staining along the borders. The brown spot near Cobb's ear appears to be a print defect rather than a foreign substance or stain. A tiny chip of paper loss on the left edge and a miniscule spot of paper loss near the lower left corner of the image are mentioned strictly for the sake of accuracy. Clean Polar Bear advertisement on the reverse is centered entirely to the right. This is a very appealing example of one of the key cards of Ty Cobb from the most popular set of the era. Reserve $400. Estimate (open).
