1910 D380 Clement Bros. Bread Ty Cobb

Starting Bid - $2,000, Sold For - $30,000

Extraordinary example of Ty Cobb from the extremely rare 1910 D380 Clement Brothers Bread series. Clement Brothers Bakery cards were regionally issued only in Rochester, New York. This is easily one of Ty Cobb's rarest cards. This is only the fourth example of this incredible rarity that we have seen over the past thirty-five years! All Clement Brothers bread cards are extremely rare. Ty Cobb is by far the key card to the set. This is an especially fascinating card as Cobb is in the identical batting pose as found in E90-1 American Caramel, but is featured in a black-and-white rendition of this design. This is a very attractive card! Encapsulated by SGC as "Authentic" due to an irregular cut along the top edge, the card presents in Very Good condition. It is entirely clean, both front and back, with even wear at the corners, outstanding centering, and an extremely faint horizontal surface crease most visible from the reverse. The back of the card features advertising for Clement Bros. bakery's bread and pies. It is boldly printed and well centered. This is a very attractive example of one of the rarest of all Ty Cobb cards. The D380 Clement Bros. Cobb, in fact, is much rarer than the T206 Ty Cobb with Ty Cobb back, and literally ten times rarer than the T206 Honus Wagner. A worthy addition to any world-class Ty Cobb, Hall of Fame, or sample-card collection. From the Dan Gantt Collection. Reserve $2,000. Estimate (open). SOLD FOR $30,000
