Graded VG 3 by PSA. Very attractive mid-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 virtually flawless registration and bold colors, with even corner wear and centering toward the top border. A very light surface wrinkle is visible in from the left edge. Sweet Caporal 150 advertising reverse is boldly printed. A very attractive example of one Cobb's most popular cards from the premier tobacco issue of the 1910 era. Reserve $1,000. Estimate $2,500+.
