1921 E121 American Caramel (Series of 80) Ty Cobb

Starting Bid - $200.00 , Sold For - $1,057.50

Graded VG/EX 50 by SGC. E121 American Caramel of Ty Cobb, one of the key cards from one of the classic caramel sets of the early 1920s. Cobb is featured in full uniform in a throwing pose. When this card was issued, Cobb was one of the game's greatest legends and was still very much in his prime. In 1921 Cobb stepped up to the plate 507 times and batted an extraordinary .389, second only to Harry Heilmann (.394 average). Bright and clean, both front and back, with even corner wear, outstanding picture quality, and centered to the left approximately 30/70. This is an extremely attractive Ty Cobb card dating from one of his best hitting seasons, produced by American Caramel during an era in which there were very few card sets issued. The SMR is $650, which seems conservative for such a rare and substantial caramel card of Ty Cobb. Reserve $200. Estimate $400/$600. SOLD FOR $1,057.50
