1909 E101 Anonymous "Set of 50" Ty Cobb

Starting Bid - $300, Sold For - $960

Graded FAIR 20 by SGC. E101 "Set of 50" candy card featuring the legendary Ty Cobb leaning on his bat. While Ty Cobb was included in virtually every candy-card issue from the 1910 era, this yellow-background pose of Cobb is considered by many to be the most attractive of the few Cobb caramel-card designs. The manufacturer of E101 is unknown. The fronts are identical in design to the E102 "Set of 25" related issues. Of special note, this card is considered by some collectors to be Ty Cobb's rookie card, though a number of other issues can also lay claim to that important distinction. It is, without question, one of Cobb's earliest cards, and is very likely "tied" for the earliest insert card ever issued of "The Georgia Peach." Bold colors, flawless registration, and even wear to the corners (slightly more to the lower right). Downgraded due to moderate creasing in the bottom third of the card. Clean reverse, which simply reads: "This card is one of a set of 50 Base Ball Players - Prominent Members of National and American Leagues." In 1909, Cobb led the league in every major batting category including batting average, hits, runs scored, total bases, home runs, and RBIs. This is relatively affordable example of one of Cobb's most classic and striking cards.  Reserve $300. Estimate $500/$1,000+. SOLD FOR $960
