1909-1911 T206 White Border Ty Cobb Red Background SGC EX/NM 80
Starting Bid - $1,000, Sold For - $4,800
Graded EX/NM 80 by SGC. Magnificent high-grade example of what is universally recognized as one of Cobb's most striking cards! The Red Background pose has long been considered one of the great classics of the T206 set, and of all vintage cards. The offered example is stunning in every way! It has a particularly striking portrait and brilliant colors with a strong red background. Extremely crisp and clean, both front and back, with virtually perfect centering, and four square corners displaying just the slightest hint of wear. Sweet Caporal advertising on the reverse. At first glance, this card appears entirely deserving of a Near Mint grade. An extremely attractive high-grade example of one of the key cards from the premier tobacco issue of the 1910 era. This T206 Cobb Red Background portrait would be a significant highlight in any high-grade T206, Hall of Famer, or Ty Cobb card collection. The equivalent SMR value in the assigned grade is $4,000. SOLD FOR $4,800
