DESCRIPTION
Graded VG 40 by SGC. This rare E102 "Set of 25" candy card features the legendary Ty Cobb leaning on his bat. While Ty Cobb was included in virtually every candy-card issue from the 1910 era, this yellow-background pose of Cobb is considered by many to be the most attractive of the few Cobb caramel-card designs. The manufacturer of E102 is unknown. The fronts are identical in design to the E101 "Set of 50" related issue. Of special note, this card is considered by some collectors to be Ty Cobb's rookie card, though a number of other issues can also lay claim to that important distinction. It is, without question, one of Cobb's earliest cards, and is very likely "tied" for the earliest insert card ever issued of "The Georgia Peach." The card is bright and crisp, with bright colors, and with evenly rounded corners. Centered 75/25 L/R and 35/65 T/B. The reverse (provides a checklist for the issue) has a few spots of surface paper loss in the upper right (extremely minor but affecting a few letters of text). In 1909, Cobb led the league in every major batting category including batting average, hits, runs scored, total bases, home runs, and RBIs. This is a very attractive example of one of Cobb's most striking cards dating from the very beginning of his career as one of baseball's greatest stars. Reserve $500. Estimate $1,000/$2,000.
