Description

    1909-11 T206 Piedmont Ty Cobb, Green Portrait SGC 60 EX 5. NOTE: The census statement in the title is incorrect, there is at least one (and probably other) higher graded examples among the census numbers where SGC did not specify a pose.

    The Ty Cobb portrait used for the T206 series has become so much more. Beyond just being a classic, it has reached "icon" statues regardless of the color surrounding. The "Green Background" version is noticeably more scarce only making it that much more passionately pursued. The offered "Piedmont" 150 Subjects example is an attention grabber thanks to a bright and blemish-free frame that surrounds a portrait that shoes no blemishes and could not be better registered. The back is as vibrant and clean as the front. A gentle rounding of the corners accounts for the entirety of the points passed resulting in a well-deserved SGC 60 EX 5 assessment. A strong mid-grade example with a virtually un-improvable portrait. A card that easily exceeds its technical grade in visual strength. If this card is on your want list this is a very satisfying way to scratch it off!
