Modestly graded example of one of the four classic poses of Ty Cobb from the T206 White Border series. Cobb's portrait contrasts sharply against the bold red background. Graded FAIR 1.5 by SGC, the obvious condition problems include a heavy crease extending across the top portion and a small area of paper loss on Cobb's chest. The Piedmont reverse is boldly printed. This is a very presentable example of one of the key cards from the premier tobacco issue of the 1910 era. Reserve $300. Estimate $500+.
