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. Graded PR 1 by PSA, the obvious condition problems include moderate creasing and corner rounding. The Piedmont 350 advertising reverse has light staining. A very presentable example of one Cobb's most popular cards from the premier tobacco issue of the 1910 era. Reserve $500. Estimate $1,000+.
