    1906-07 Sporting Life Team Postcards - Detroit American League SGC 50 VG/EX 4 With Ty Cobb! There is always going to be a debate regarding what is or isn't a rookie card and exactly when was the first to make a public debut. This conversation gets all the more heated when the player in question is baseball legend Ty Cobb. It is with that in mind that we offer this extremely special Detroit Tigers card as one of the 18 featured players is a boyish looking Ty Cobb on an item that specifically dates to 1906. Only the 1905 W601 Detroit Tigers paper premium includes Cobb with an earlier date. No other "card" of any type that includes or features Cobb has an earlier date! Other notable players here include HoFer Sam Crawford, Donovan, Schaefer, Mullin and McIntyre.

    Graded SGC 50 VG/EX 4. One of only seven total graded by SGC. One of four in VG/EX with two rated higher.

    The hammer price for my Mantle card significantly exceeded my admittedly conservative estimations, and I couldn't be more pleased.
