1909-1911 T206 White Border Ty Cobb Portrait Red Background PSA EX-MT 6

Starting Bid - $1,500, Sold For - $10,200

Graded EX-MT 6 by PSA. Magnificent high-grade example of what is universally recognized as one of Cobb's most striking cards! The Red Background pose has long been considered one of the great classics of the T206 set, and of all vintage cards. The offered example is a stunning EX-MT example! It has a particularly striking portrait, and brilliant colors with a strong red background. Extremely crisp and clean, both front and back, with near-perfect centering (slightly to the bottom) and four strong corners showing light touches of wear. Sweet Caporal advertising on reverse. The T206 Cobb Red Background portrait is one of the key cards from the premier tobacco issue of the 1910 era, and this example would be a significant highlight in any world-class T206, Hall of Famer, or Ty Cobb card collection. Reserve $1,500. Estimate $3,000+. SOLD FOR $10,200
