Modestly graded example of this classic tobacco card of Hall of Famer Ty Cobb, with the Sweet Caporal 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 bold green background. Graded PR-FR 1 by PSA, the obvious condition problems include heavy creasing and corner rounding. The reverse has heavy soiling and areas of paper loss. This is a presentable modestly graded example of one of the key cards from the premier tobacco issue of the 1910 era. Reserve $500. Estimate $1,000+.
