1909-1911 T206 Ty Cobb Red Background PSA EX 5

Starting Bid - $800, Sold For - $2,370

Graded EX 5 by PSA. Exceptionally attractive high-grade example of one of the four classic poses of Ty Cobb from the T206 White Borders series. This card is one of the highlights of a newly discovered collection of T206s consigned by the great-grandson of the original owner. The card is bright and crisp, both front and back, with a deep, red background, flawless registration, near-perfect centering, and light corner wear. A few white spots are visible in the upper left portion of the otherwise flawless red background. Boldly printed and entirely clean Piedmont advertisement on the reverse. This is an extremely desirable grade for this classic card, providing a relatively affordable alternative to a far more expensive super high-grade example, without compromising anything in the way of eye-appeal. SMR value is $2,500. Reserve $800. Estimate $1,500/$2,500. SOLD FOR $2,370
