1909-1911 T206 Ty Cobb Green Background

Starting Bid - $2,000.00, Sold For - $7,050.00

Graded EX-MT 6 by PSA. Extremely high-grade example of this classic tobacco card of Hall of Famer Ty Cobb. Of the 330 Green Background Cobbs listed in the PSA Population Report, only twelve have received an EX-MT 6 designation. The Green Background pose has long been considered the rarest of the four poses of Cobb in the T206 set. The offered example has flawless registration, vibrant colors, clean both front and back (one insignificant mark on reverse), centered slightly toward the top border, and with four square corners displaying just a hint of wear (most easily seen on the reverse upper left corner and obverse lower right corner). This is an extremely attractive high-grade example of one of the key cards from the premier tobacco issue of the 1910 era. Piedmont advertising on reverse. SMR value is $6,000. Reserve $2,000. Estimate $4,000/$6,000. SOLD FOR $7,050.00
