Graded EX-MT 6 by PSA (submitted by REA). This is the ONLY example graded at this level with none higher! Outstanding ultra high-grade example of Hall of Famer Ty Cobb (portrait, red background pose) from the T206 series with a very desirable American Beauty 350 advertising reverse. The offered card is one of the highlights from a very substantial, totally untouched collection of 1910-era tobacco cards consigned to this auction. American Beauty is a scarce back, certainly not in the same league as Drum or Uzit, but very unusual and seen far less often than most other T206 advertising backs. The T206 Ty Cobb red background pose is one of the most recognizable cards in all of card collecting. The offered example is stunning, with extremely vibrant colors, a crisp image, and just a hint of light wear to the four corners. Outstanding centering and entirely crease free. Perfectly clean both front and back. The important American Beauty advertising reverse is boldly printed and centered slightly to the right. This is an extremely attractive and very rare scarce-back example of this classic Ty Cobb tobacco card. Reserve $2,500. Estimate (open).
