Graded EX+ 5.5 by PSA. Magnificent high-grade example of what is universally recognized as one of Cobb's most striking cards! The Red Background pose has long been considered one of the great classics of the T206 set, and of all vintage cards. Presented is a bright, crisp, clean EX+ example, with no creases, bold color, perfect registration, and outstanding centering. Light, even corner wear accounts for the assigned grade. The Piedmont 350-460 (Factory 25) advertisement on the reverse is boldly printed and centered to the right. The T206 Cobb Red Background portrait is one of the key cards from the premier tobacco issue of the 1910 era, and this example would be a significant highlight in any world-class T206, Hall of Famer, or Ty Cobb card collection. Reserve $2,500. Estimate $5,000+.
