1911 T3 Turkey Red #9 Ty Cobb

Starting Bid - $500, Sold For - $1,800

Presented is one of vintage-card collecting's most famous 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. Turkey Reds are considered by many to be the most beautiful and well-made tobacco set ever issued. This example features bold colors and a crisp image. It displays scattered creases and wrinkles on both front and back, along with an area of paper loss at the top center of the checklist reverse, which is responsible for the modest SGC-assigned grade of POOR 10. The T3 Ty Cobb has always and will always be in high demand, especially a relatively affordable but still attractive low-grade example such as this. SOLD FOR $1,800
