Graded FAIR 1.5 by SGC (submitted by REA). Outstanding sample card of Hall of Famer Ty Cobb (Detroit Tigers) from the rare and highly regarded PC758 Max Stein Postcards set issued from 1909 to 1916. Baseball photographer Max Stein's classic postcards are among the most revered of all early twentieth-century postcards. Cobb is ideally depicted in a squared-around batting pose. The image on the card is bright and crisp, with even wear to the corners, and tack holes on the upper left and lower right edges. The reverse is lightly soiled. Only eight examples of Cobb have ever been graded (at any level) by SGC and PSA. This is one of the key cards in the set and one of the great Cobb cards of the era. An ideal sample card featuring one of the game's most legendary stars, from one of the most substantial of all 1910-era baseball postcard issues. Dimensions: 3.5 x 5.5 inches. Reserve $1,000. Estimate (open).
