Lot # 62 (of 1336)   < Previous Lot | Next Lot >

1910-1911 M116 Sporting Life Ty Cobb Pastel SGC EX 60

Starting Bid - $500, Sold For - $1,680

Graded EX 60 by SGC. Attractive example of Ty Cobb from the M116 Sporting Life set, one of the most popular of all 1910-era issues. M116s have always been especially appreciated by collectors for their distinctive style and rarity relative to other tobacco cards of the era. Crisp image, vibrant colors, and clean both front and back. Centered to the left, with light wear at the corners (slightly more at the top right; we grade this card a half-grade more conservatively than SGC as a result). The reverse is flawless, with the advertising for Sporting Life printed crisply and boldly in blue and centered to the right. This is an outstanding example of one of Ty Cobb's most classic cards.  Reserve $500. Estimate $1,000++. SOLD FOR $1,680
