1909-1911 T206 White Border Ty Cobb Red Background

Starting Bid - $500, Sold For - $3,300

Graded VG-EX 4 by PSA. Superb midgrade example of what is universally recognized as one of Cobb's most iconic cards! The Red Background pose has long been considered one of the great classics of the T206 set and of all vintage cards. The offered example has a particularly striking portrait and brilliant colors, with a strong red background. Extremely crisp and clean, both front and back, with near-perfect centering and light wear at the corners (more in the lower left). Piedmont advertising on reverse. The T206 Cobb Red Background portrait is one of the key cards from the premier tobacco issue of the 1910 era, and this example would be a worthy addition to any T206, Hall of Famer, or Ty Cobb card collection. Reserve $500. Estimate $1,000/$1,500+. SOLD FOR $3,300
