1909-1911 T206 White Border Ty Cobb Red Background

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

Graded GOOD 2 by PSA. Stunning modestly graded Ty Cobb (red background) card from the legendary T206 White Border set. The T206 portrait of Ty Cobb set against a brilliant red background is considered by many collectors to be his single most classic card. It is one of the most recognizable and popular of all vintage baseball cards. This is a bright, crisp, and clean example, with four square corners, brilliant color, perfect registration, and an extremely bold red background. The card has a horizontal crease that runs across the card through Cobb’s chest, which is not particularly distracting because the flaw is overshadowed by all the great qualities this card has to offer. The Piedmont reverse is boldly printed and displays moderate toning. This example illustrates that even today a collector, with patience, can still obtain some of the most noteworthy cards in outstanding condition on a relatively modest budget. A superb PSA GOOD 2 example of this classic Ty Cobb card! Reserve $300. Estimate $500+. SOLD FOR $1,440
