Modestly graded example of one of the four classic poses of Ty Cobb from the T206 White Border series. Cobb's portrait contrasts sharply against the bold red background. Graded POOR 10 by SGC, the obvious condition problems include heavy creasing, corner rounding, and centering to the extreme right. The Piedmont reverse is boldly printed. This is a very presentable example of one of the key cards from the premier tobacco issue of the 1910 era. Reserve $300. Estimate (open).
