1909-1911 T206 White Border Ty Cobb Red Background PSA VG-EX+ 4.5 - Cycle 460 Back - Highest Graded!

Starting Bid - $1,000, Sold For - $7,800

Graded VG-EX+ 4.5 by PSA. Highest-graded PSA example on record! Exceptional T206 White Border of Hall of Famer Ty Cobb (portrait, red background) with a very desirable Cycle 460 advertising reverse, ranked by as the seventeenth toughest back (with some almost impossible backs like Ty Cobb, Brown Old Mill, and Brown Lenox ahead of it). The T206 Ty Cobb portrait, red background, is one of the most recognizable cards in all of card collecting. It is also universally regarded as one of Ty Cobb's most famous and striking cards! The offered example is extremely pleasing, with a flawless image, bold colors, and perfect registration. Light, even wear to the corners and centered extremely well. Perfectly clean both front and back. The important Cycle 460 advertising reverse is boldly printed and centered very slightly to the right. This card was personally sold to our consignor in the early 1980s by legendary collector Bill Heitman, author of The Monster, the first comprehensive book written about the T206 series, and it has remained in his collection of T206s ever since. This is an extremely attractive scarce-back example of this classic Ty Cobb tobacco card, worthy of even the most advanced Ty Cobb, Hall of Fame, or T206-back collection.  Reserve $1,000. Estimate (open). SOLD FOR $7,800
