1911 T3 Turkey Red #9 Ty Cobb

Starting Bid - $1,000, Sold For - $4,444

Graded VG+ 45 by SGC. Presented is one of vintage-card collecting's most recognizable icons and the key card of the 1911 Turkey Red Tobacco cabinet-card series: #9 Ty Cobb. Besides being the most valuable card in the set, it is also one of the most desirable and striking of all Ty Cobb cards. This example is bright and crisp, very clean, both front and back, with bold colors and near-perfect centering. The card is crease-free with only a small surface wrinkle present in the lower left corner and light even corner wear visible (advanced rounding is present in the upper right). The checklist back is boldly printed and well centered with only a light, unobtrusive stain present in the upper left reverse corner mentioned for the sake of accuracy. This is a very attractive example of card #9 Ty Cobb, in an extremely desirable grade. The classic Turkey Red set is considered by many to be the most beautiful and well-made tobacco set ever issued. The T3 Ty Cobb has always and will always be in high demand, especially a relatively affordable mid-grade example such as the card offered here. Reserve $1,000. Estimate $2,000+. SOLD FOR $4,444
