1909-1911 T206 White Border Ty Cobb Bat On Shoulder SGC EX+ 70

Starting Bid - $1,000, Sold For - $5,400

Graded EX+ 70 by SGC. Crisp, clean, and extremely attractive high-grade example of this classic tobacco card of Hall of Famer Ty Cobb. The T206 Ty Cobb bat-on-shoulder pose is one of the most classic of all prewar tobacco cards. This card has very strong eye-appeal. The colors are bright and Cobb’s image is perfectly focused against the background. Near-perfect centering left to right, with a particularly large top border, the largest we have ever seen on a T206. The Piedmont advertising reverse is boldly printed in blue and entirely clean. This is a very strong and simply stunning example of one of the key cards from the premier tobacco issue of the 1910 era. Reserve $1,000. Estimate $2,500++. SOLD FOR $5,400
