1913 M101-3 Sporting News Postcards Ty Cobb

Starting Bid - $400, Sold For - $2,280

Presented is the key card of Detroit Tigers Hall of Famer Ty Cobb from the 1913 M101-3 Sporting News Postcards series. A total of six cards comprise a complete set, which was available as a premium from the Sporting News. The newspaper is well known to card collectors for a number of 1910-era sets. Each postcard in the set measures 3.5 x 5.5 inches, features a duotone color photo on front and a traditional postcard reverse. Graded GOOD 30 by SGC, the card presents as Excellent from the front, with a flawless, crisp image and light touches of wear at the corners. The reverse has never been written on or mailed. The card is harshly downgraded due to a few stray drops of ink visible on the reverse. This is a very attractive example of Ty Cobb that presents at a level superior to its assigned grade and would be an exceptionally worthy addition to any Ty Cobb, Hall of Fame, or postcard collection. Reserve $400. Estimate $800/$1,200. SOLD FOR $2,280
