Graded GOOD 30 by SGC. Very attractive modestly graded 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 flawless registration and bold colors, with rounded corners, and outstanding centering. The heavy creasing on front accounts for the assigned grade. Sweet Caporal 150 advertising reverse is clean and boldly printed. A stunning low-grade example of one Cobb's most desirable cards from the premier tobacco issue of the 1910 era. Reserve $1,000. Estimate $2,500+.
