Presented is the key card of Detroit Tigers Hall of Famer Ty Cobb from the 1913 M101-3 Sporting News Postcards series. A total of six cards comprise a complete set, which was available as a premium from the Sporting News. The newspaper is well known to card collectors for a number of 1910-era sets. Each postcard in the set measures 3.5 x 5.5 inches, features a duo-tone color photo on front and a traditional postcard reverse. Encapsulated Authentic by SGC, the card presents as Excellent from the front, with a flawless, crisp image and light wear at the corners. The reverse has two areas of paper loss from album removal, several scattered spots of age toning, and has never been written on or mailed. The card did not receive a numerical grade due to color added on the upper left corner. This is a very attractive example of one of Cobb's most classic cards that would be an exceptionally worthy addition to any Ty Cobb, Hall of Fame, or postcard collection. Reserve $300. Estimate $500+.
