Graded GOOD+ 35 by SGC. A very attractive low-grade example of this classic tobacco card featuring Hall of Famer Ty Cobb, with an unusual and desirable Sovereign Cigarettes back. Sovereign is an uncommon back, certainly not in the same league as Drum or Uzit, but very unusual and seen less often than most other advertising backs. The T206 Ty Cobb bat-on-shoulder pose is one of the key cards in the set and the second most valuable of the four Ty Cobb cards in the T206 series. Bright and crisp, with bold colors, honest corner wear, and centered toward the extreme top. The Sovereign 150 advertising reverse is boldly printed. This is a very attractive low-grade example of the legendary Ty Cobb from the most popular set of the 1910 era.  Reserve $500. Estimate $1,000+.
