1911 T205 Gold Border Ty Cobb

Starting Bid - $300, Sold For - $1,080

Graded VG 40 by SGC (submitted by REA). Ty Cobb card from the T205 Gold Border set, one of the most popular of all 1910-era tobacco issues. This is a very pleasing example of one of card collecting's most classic cards, from what is perhaps card collecting's single most condition-sensitive issue. Cobb is not just the most valuable card in the set, it also one of the most well known and popular of all Ty Cobb cards. This example displays with bold, bright color, flawless registration, two light, unobtrusive creases, and centering to the right. The delicate gold borders are relatively clean and show only minor chipping along the right edge and at the corners, which does not detract from the card's visual appeal. The Piedmont advertising back is entirely clean and well centered. This card provides an excellent opportunity to acquire an appealing and relatively affordable alternative to a far more expensive higher-grade example of this classic Ty Cobb card. SOLD FOR $1,080
