1919 T213 Coupon Cigarettes Ty Cobb (Type 3) - PSA EX-MT 6

Starting Bid - $1,000.00 , Sold For - $4,700.00

Graded EX-MT 6 by PSA. Only example graded at this level by PSA. Extremely high grade T213 (Type 3) Coupon Cigarette card of Ty Cobb, the key card to this elusive and extremely rare tobacco set. T213 Coupon Cigarettes are one of the most interesting, rarest, and most overlooked of all tobacco-card issues. Similar in design to and borrowing the same images of T206, T213 (Type 3) was issued exclusively in the Louisiana area, and was the very last of the traditional tobacco-card sets. The set was issued in 1919. This magnificent example has an appearance that is even stronger than its PSA-assigned Ex-Mt grade, but is kept from a higher grade due to a touch too much wear on the upper left corner. The card certainly borders on Near Mint. This is a gorgeous T213 (Type 3) Ty Cobb example. It is bright, clean, and virtually perfectly centered, with a deep red background and flawless registration. The corners are square with only the lightest hint of wear (as noted, primarily in the upper left, and even this is minor). The back is clean with very bold print. T213 (Type 3) Coupons are far rarer than their T206 counterparts. This is an exceptional example of one of Cobb's rarest and most interesting tobacco cards, which would be a worthy addition to any Hall of Fame, sample, or rare vintage baseball card-collection. Reserve $1,000. Estimate $2,000/$3,000. SOLD FOR $4,700.00
