    Description

    1909-11 T206 Piedmont 350 Ty Cobb (Portrait Green) PSA NM 7 - Pop One, One Higher for Brand/Series! In very much the same way the four Babe Ruth cards from the 1933 Goudey series have captivated generation after generation and have come to represent the entire era, so too have the four cards from the T206 edition featuring Ty Cobb. The grade seems to mean nothing to the fervent group of collectors who own this card or are still in pursuit. At the top of the list of many such collectors is the "Green Portrait" variation, which, according to the PSA website, is "by far the toughest of the elite group." Its deep, rich green is still alluring over a century later.

    Offered is a 1909-11 T206 card featuring Ty Cobb "Green Portrait" with a "Piedmont 350" ad and factory 25 caption. An outstanding high-grade example. Minimal corner wear, save for the lower right-hand corner, which has the slightest blemish. Graded PSA NM 7. After almost 1,000 overall submissions, just over fifty are confirmed with this brand/series. Only one is graded NM with only one higher. Very few Cobb cards in existence could be considered finer than this.


    Guide Value or Estimate: $80,000 - up.

    Auction Type
    Signature Internet Extended Bid: These Auctions are presented via catalog and online. Bidding is taken through our website or via phone. There are two phases of bidding during this type of auction: 1) Normal bidding: Bids are taken up until 10 PM CT the night the auction closes. 2) 30 Minute Ending: On a lot-by-lot basis, starting at 10:00 PM CT, any person who has bid on the lot previously may continue to bid on that lot until there are no more bids for 30 minutes. For example, if you bid on a lot during Normal Bidding, you could participate during Extended Bidding for that lot, but not on lots you did not bid on previously. If a bid was placed at 10:15, the new end time for that lot would become 10:45. If no other bids were placed before 10:45, the lot would close. If you are the high bidder on a lot, changing your bid will not extend the bidding during the 30 Minute Ending phase (only a bid from another bidder will extend bidding). If you are the only bidder at 10 PM, you will automatically win the lot at 10:30. Important: After normal bidding ends, you must be signed-on to the Heritage site to see the bidding option on lots where you qualify for extended bidding.
