Graded VG 40 by SGC. Very attractive Ty Cobb (red background) tobacco card from the legendary T206 White Border set. The T206 portrait of Ty Cobb set against a brilliant red background is considered by many collectors to be his single most classic card. It is one of the most recognizable and popular of all vintage baseball cards. The offered example has evenly rounded corners, perfect registration, and outstanding centering. The Piedmont reverse is boldly printed. A surface indentation is visible above Cobb's left shoulder. This card provides an excellent opportunity to acquire an appealing yet relatively affordable alternative to a far more expensive higher-grade example of this classic Ty Cobb card. Reserve $1,000. Estimate $2,000+.
