1933 R338 Sport Kings #1 Ty Cobb SGC NM 84
Starting Bid - $1,000, Sold For - $4,800
Graded NM 84 by SGC. Only five examples grade higher out of 155 cards evaluated by SGC to date. Extremely striking high-grade example of one of Ty Cobb's most sought-after cards. Bright and clean, both front and back, beautifully centered (slightly to the bottom), with crisp, bold printing on front and reverse, and sharp corners. The 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, 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 an extremely attractive high-grade example of one of Cobb's most classic cards. The equivalent SMR value in the assigned grade is $4,500. SOLD FOR $4,800
