1911 T205 Gold Border Ty Cobb

Starting Bid - $200.00, Sold For - $1,175.00

Graded VG 3 by PSA. Ty Cobb card from the T205 Gold Border set, one of the most popular of all 1910-era tobacco issues. This is a very pleasing mid-grade example of one of card collecting's most classic cards, from what is perhaps card collecting's single most condition-sensitive issue. Cobb is not just the most valuable card in the set, it also one of the most well known and popular of all Ty Cobb cards. This example is bright and clean, both front and back, with bold colors. The corners are evenly rounded. The card's primary flaw is that it is seriously off-center top to bottom (approx 85/15 T/B). Technically in Very Good condition, this card provides collectors a rare opportunity to acquire a very pleasing and relatively affordable alternative to a far more expensive higher grade example. Reserve $200. Estimate $400/$800. SOLD FOR $1,175.00
