1933 Goudey Sport Kings #1 Ty Cobb

Starting Bid - $300, Sold For - $2,252

Graded EX+ 70 by SGC (submitted by REA). A very attractive example of one of Ty Cobb's most striking and sought-after cards, from one of the most popular sets of the 1930s. This card is one of the highlights of an original-owner Goudey collection offered in a number of lots in this auction. Bright and clean, both front and back, with a flawless yellow background framing a crisp, perfectly registered image of Cobb. The card has light, even corner wear, no creases, and is centered very slightly to the bottom. Sport Kings is one of Cobb’s most popular and majestic cards. Being the number-one card in the set, this card naturally gravitated to the top of the stack, usually exposing it to extra wear and handling, and thus making high-grade examples even more difficult to find than most other Sport Kings and other Cobb cards. This is a very attractive example of this classic Cobb card, with exceptional eye-appeal. The equivalent SMR value for an EX 5 is $1,200. Reserve $300. Estimate $500/$1,000. SOLD FOR $2,252
