1922 E121 American Caramel "Series of 120" Ty Cobb

Starting Bid - $300, Sold For - $1,200

Graded VG 3 by PSA. E121 American Caramel (series of 120) of Detroit Tigers Hall of Famer Ty Cobb (batting), one of the key cards from one of the classic caramel sets of the early 1920s. Cobb is ideally depicted in uniform holding the bat that made him so famous. Bright, clean, and crisp, with light wear at the corners and centering slightly to the bottom. Clean and boldly printed reverse. A faint 1.5-inch crease, most visible from the reverse, is responsible for the assigned grade. E121 American Caramel cards are rarely found in high grade, especially since these cards were sold in packs of caramel to youngsters, one card per package. This is an extremely attractive example of Ty Cobb, produced by American Caramel during an era in which very few card sets were issued. Reserve $300. Estimate $500++. SOLD FOR $1,200
