1909-1911 T206 Ty Cobb - Green Background

Starting Bid - $500, Sold For - $2,015

Graded VG 40 by SGC. Extremely attractive example of Ty Cobb set against a green background in portrait pose from the T206 series. The Green Background pose has long been considered the rarest of the four poses of Cobb in the T206 set. The offered example has flawless registration, a crisp image, centering slightly to the left, and natural even rounding to the corners. Clean both front and back with a boldly printed Piedmont reverse. This is an outstanding example of one of Ty Cobb's all-time classic cards that possesses much greater eye-appeal than suggested by its technically accurate assigned grade. The equivalent SMR value is $1,500. Reserve $500. Estimate $1,000+. SOLD FOR $2,015
