Lot # 273 (of 1512)   < Previous Lot | Next Lot >

1909-1911 T206 White Border Ty Cobb Red Background

Starting Bid - $300, Sold For - $1,440

Graded VG 3 by PSA. Stunning, modestly graded example of this classic tobacco card of Hall of Famer Ty Cobb. This is a beautiful card that (as can easily be seen) presents stronger than its technically accurate grade. The Red Background pose has long been considered one of the most classic of all Ty Cobb cards. Bright and clean, both front and back, with a bold red background, centering slightly to the top, and very light, even wear to the corners. Downgraded due to two small creases, one at the top border and another in the chest area. Clean Sweet Caporal reverse. This is a very attractive example of one of Cobb's most famous cards from the premier tobacco issue of the 1910 era that, while not costing a fortune, is and will always be a true vintage-card collecting classic. Reserve $300. Estimate $500/$1,000. SOLD FOR $1,440
