1909-1911 T206 Ty Cobb Green Background PSA NM 7

Starting Bid - $5,000.00, Sold For - $17,625.00

Graded NM 7 by PSA. Extremely high-grade example of Ty Cobb from the prized T206 White Borders series features a classic portrait image set against a brilliant green background. The Green Background pose has long been considered the rarest, and by far the most desirable, of the four poses of Cobb in the T206 set. The corners are sharp with just slight hints of wear. The Sweet Caporal reverse is flawless. The centering is virtually perfect (approximately 52/48 L/R). A single light pinpoint background age spot (extremely difficult to see and of no consequence) may be all that is keeping this gem from grading NM-MT 8. Bright and clean both front and back. This is an extremely attractive high-grade example of one of the key cards from the premier tobacco issue of the 1910 era. Reserve $5,000. Estimate $10,000+.
SOLD FOR $17,625.00
