1909-1911 T206 White Border Ty Cobb Green Background

Starting Bid - $500, Sold For - $2,400

Graded VG 3 by PSA. Extremely attractive example of Ty Cobb in a portrait pose set against a green background, from the T206 series. The Green Background pose has long been considered the rarest of the four poses of Cobb in the T206 set. The offered example has flawless registration, a crisp image, near-perfect centering, and four square corners showing light touches of wear. Clean both front and back with a well-centered Sweet Caporal reverse. A few unobtrusive wrinkles account for the modest assigned grade despite a much better overall appearance. This is an outstanding and very conservatively graded example of one of Ty Cobb's all-time classic cards! Reserve $500. Estimate $1,000+. SOLD FOR $2,400
