    Description

    1909-11 T206 Sovereign Ty Cobb, Red Portrait SGC 80 EX/NM 6. Ty Cobb... Possibly the greatest hitter ever, relied on his passionate, daring style of play to bat over .320 for 22 straight seasons. Cobb later attributed his ferocious play to the death of his father, saying, "I did it for my father...He never got to see me play... But I knew he was watching me... and I never let him down". Offered is a great T206 "Sovereign Cigarettes" T206 card of Cobb, his classic "Red background" portrait. There is some very slight corner tip wear and an off-centered but close to perfect portrait to account for the SGC rating. Graded SGC 80 EX/NM 6. Of the twenty-one SGC confirmed example this card is the only one at this grade level, with only one graded higher.
