1909-1911 T206 Ty Cobb Rare "Uzit" Back

Starting Bid - $1,000.00, Sold For - $11,600.00

Graded VG 40 by SGC. Bat-off-shoulder pose of Hall of Famer Ty Cobb with extremely rare Uzit back. The card is centered 30/70 top to bottom with evenly rounded corners and no creases. Clean front and back. All Uzit backs are great rarities, but this card is all the more interesting because it features Ty Cobb and is the premier T206 card with a Uzit back. This is the only pose of Cobb in the T206 set which was printed with a Uzit advertising back. It is also interesting to note while the red background portrait card of Ty Cobb with an advertisement for Ty Cobb Tobacco (of which approximately a dozen are known) is universally recognized as one of the most significant and valuable of all tobacco card rarities, the Uzit back T206 Ty Cobb is actually even slightly rarer, with literally only several examples known to exist. This card is the highlight of the extraordinary original owner collection of rare Uzit backs that is being offered in this auction. Reserve $1,000. Estimate $2,000/$3,000. SOLD FOR $11,600.00
