AUCTION NAME: REA SPRING 2015

THE AUCTION IS EXTENDED!! You can continue to bid on any given lot only if you have already bid on that lot PRIOR to 9:00 PM EST. All lots will close simultaneously. The auction will remain open until no bid is received for 15 minutes on any item in the auction. If the auction continues to as late as 12:00 A.M. Midnight EST (which has always been the case in the past), Robert Edward Auctions reserves the right to close the auction, at its sole discretion, at any time. We recommend bidders leave maximum left bids utilizing Robert Edward Auctions Honest Auto-Bid system to avoid disappointment. There will be no warning to exactly when we will close the auction should bidding continue past 12:00 A.M. Midnight EST. After 12:00 A.M. Midnight there is an uncertainty. In the past, the auction has always remained open past 2:00 A.M. EST (technically the morning of April 26th).

DESCRIPTION
Graded EX+ 70 by SGC. Extremely high grade example of this classic tobacco card of Hall of Famer Ty Cobb. The Green Background pose has long been considered the rarest of the four poses of Cobb in the T206 set. The offered example has flawless registration, perfect colors, clean both front and back (one insignificant light spot on reverse), centered slightly toward the left border, and with four square corners displaying just the slightest hint of wear (most easily seen on the upper left corner and lower left corner). This is an extremely attractive high-grade example of one of the key cards from the premier tobacco issue of the 1910 era. Sweet Caporal advertising on reverse. Please note that this very card was auctioned last year at REA. It appeared as Lot 170 in May 2009, selling for $4,994.50 at that time, and has been consigned to this auction directly by the original purchaser. Reserve $1,500. Estimate $3,000+.
