Graded GOOD 2 by PSA. Low-grade example of this classic tobacco card of Hall of Famer Ty Cobb, with the Sweet Caporal 350 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 green background. The obvious condition problems include heavy creasing extending across Cobb's chest and rounded corners. The advertising reverse is centered to the right. This is a very presentable example of one of the key cards from the premier tobacco issue of the 1910 era. Reserve $1,000. Estimate $2,500+.
