1909-1911 T206 Ty Cobb - Green Background

Starting Bid - $1,000, Sold For - $3,231

Graded VG/EX 50 by SGC. Exceptional example of this classic tobacco card of Hall of Famer Ty Cobb. The Green Background pose has long been considered the rarest of the four poses of Cobb in the T206 set. The offered example has a flawless portrait set against a bold green background and perfect colors; it is bright and clean, both front and back, free of all creases, and centered slightly toward the bottom left, with light, even corner wear. This card is a particularly strong example for the VG/EX SGC grade. It is conservatively graded and is very close to Excellent condition. This is an extremely attractive high-grade example of one of the key cards from the premier tobacco issue of the 1910 era. Piedmont advertising on reverse. Reserve $1,000. Estimate $2,000+. SOLD FOR $3,231
