1909-1911 E90-1 American Caramel Ty Cobb PSA EX-MT 6

Starting Bid - $2,500, Sold For - $11,400

Graded EX-MT 6 by PSA. One of only two graded at this level with just three higher! This is a stunning card! Spectacular ultra high-grade example of Hall of Famer Ty Cobb in a batting pose from the highly desirable E90-1 American Caramel series, one of Cobb's most beautifully designed cards and one of the key cards from the set. This classic 1910-era caramel card is widely recognized by collectors as one of Cobb’s most striking cards, but is rarely found this nice. (The numbers speak for themselves: as noted, according to the PSA Population Report only one other PSA EX-MT 6 and three other examples have ever been graded higher; this is out of 127 Ty Cobb examples graded to date!) This is a remarkable high-grade E90-1 American Caramel Ty Cobb with extremely strong eye-appeal. Cobb’s image is boldly set against the vibrant multicolor background. The card features a flawlessly bright and clean surface, four strong corners, and centering slightly to the right. The reverse is also flawless and perfectly clean, with bold black print. This card is in magnificent condition for any 1910-era card, let alone for a caramel card, which because they were issued with candy, one card per package, tend to survive in lesser condition than their more common tobacco-card counterparts. This is an exceptional high-grade example of one of Cobb’s most desirable cards from the premier “E” card issue, and one that would be a highlight in any exceptional high quality classic, Hall of Fame, E90-1, or Ty Cobb card collection. Reserve $2,500. Estimate $5,000+. SOLD FOR $11,400
