1919-1921 W514 #43 Ty Cobb SGC NM 84

Starting Bid - $200, Sold For - $840

Graded NM 84 by SGC. Outstanding high-grade example of Detroit Tigers Hall of Famer Ty Cobb from the W514 strip-card series. The W514 set is the largest and most widely collected of the various strip-card issues of the era. Ty Cobb is one of the key Hall of Famers in the W514 set, and is almost never seen in such extraordinarily high grade. Strip cards, of course, are by definition hand-cut, as intended. The ever so slightly irregular cuts characteristic to the issue, which many times affect a small portion of the cutting guidelines, often do not qualify cards for a numerical grade from the professional grading companies. The offered example is a rare exception, displaying a clean and accurate cut on all sides. It is well centered, with a crisp image, bold colors, and four strong corners. Clean black reverse. A superb ultra high-grade example of the legendary Ty Cobb from this extremely desirable strip-card set. Reserve $200. Estimate $400+. SOLD FOR $840
