Lot # 171 (of 1560)   < Previous Lot | Next Lot >

1909-1911 T206 Ty Cobb - Red Background (Old Mill Back)

Starting Bid - $500, Sold For - $7,050

Graded EX 5 by PSA. Exceptionally attractive high-grade example of one of the four classic poses of Ty Cobb from the T206 White Borders series, with an Old Mill back. Old Mill is a scarce back, certainly not in the same league as Drum or Uzit, but unusual and seen far less often the standard Piedmont or Sweet Caporal advertising backs. This is a tremendous example with an even stronger eye appeal than suggested by its very respectable and technically accurate PSA grade. The card is bright and crisp, both front and back, very well centered, with a deep, red background, bold colors, perfect registration, and even wear to the corners. This is an extremely desirable grade for this classic card, providing a relatively affordable alternative to a far more expensive super high-grade example, without compromising on all of the most important qualities of the card. This is a beautiful card and a relatively affordable true classic. SMR value is $1,800. Reserve $500. Estimate $1,000/$1,500+. SOLD FOR $7,050
