Lot # 181 (of 1389)   < Previous Lot | Next Lot >

1909-1911 T206 White Border Ty Cobb Red Background - Polar Bear Back - Orange Background

Starting Bid - $500, Sold For - $2,040

Graded VG/EX+ 55 by SGC. Exceptionally attractive example of one of the four classic poses of Ty Cobb from the T206 White Border series. The offered card is of all the more special note, however, as it appears with a crisp orange background instead of the characteristic deep red. This is a noted phenomenon with this card, and collectors today greatly appreciate all interesting T206 color variations and printing oddities. The card presents with a crisp image, near-perfect registration, outstanding centering, and light, even corner wear. Boldly printed and clean Polar Bear advertisement on the reverse, free of any heavy tobacco staining normally associated with Polar Bear backs. This is an extremely desirable grade for this classic card, and this particular example is additionally noteworthy for its interesting color variation and popular advertising back. SOLD FOR $2,040
