Presented is one of vintage-card collecting's most famous icons and the key card of the 1911 T3 Turkey Red Tobacco cabinet-card series: #9 Ty Cobb. Besides being the most valuable card in the set, it is also one of the most desirable and striking of all Ty Cobb cards. Turkey Reds are considered by many to be the most beautiful and well-made tobacco set ever issued. Encapsulated Authentic by SGC (submitted by REA), this low-grade example features bold colors and a crisp image. The obvious flaws include heavy creases, two tack holes, a couple spots of paper remnants on the front, a chip out of the right edge, and two pieces of clear tape on the checklist reverse. The T3 Ty Cobb has always and will always be in high demand, especially a relatively affordable low-grade example such as this.
