Modestly graded example of this classic tobacco card of Hall of Famer Ty Cobb, with the Sweet Caporal Cigarettes back. The Green Background portrait pose has long been considered the rarest of the four poses of Cobb in the T206 set. Cobb's portrait contrasts sharply against the bold green background. Graded POOR 10 by SGC, the obvious condition problems include heavy creasing and extreme corner rounding. The advertising reverse displays bold red print. This is a very presentable modestly graded example of one of the key cards from the premier tobacco issue of the 1910 era. Reserve $500. Estimate (open).
