Modestly graded example of this classic tobacco card of Hall of Famer Ty Cobb, with the Polar Bear Cigarettes back. The red background, portrait pose is one of the key cards in the set and one of the most recognizable of all prewar-era tobacco cards. Graded FR 1.5 by PSA due to moderate creasing, lightly rounded corners, and minor surface wear on the upper right of the reverse. The advertising back is clean and boldly printed. This is a very attractive low-grade example of one of the key cards from the premier tobacco issue of the 1910 era. Reserve $300. Estimate $500+.
