    Description

    1909-11 T206 Sweet Caporal 350/30 Ty Cobb (Bat Off Shoulder) PSA EX-MT 6. "In legend," Cobb wrote, shortly before his passing in 1961, "I am a sadistic, slashing, swashbuckling despot who waged war in the guise of sport." The truth, of course, is somewhat more complex than that, but this greatest figure of the Dead Ball Era was unquestionably the most determined ballplayer of his time (and perhaps of all time). Every great ballplayer's yin will have its yang--for Lou Gehrig, his unwillingness to rest after concussions may have been his undoing. Mickey Mantle lived every day like his last, making his last day come too quickly. And Cobb brought the same gritted teeth fervor to breaking every record in the books that he did to breaking the jaws of those who disrespected him.

    Graded PSA EX-MT 6. The Georgia Peach is honored four times in the most famous trading card issue of the Dead Ball Era, and this one might be our favorite, borrowing the kind of idyllic sunset background that made contemporary Turkey Red Cabinets so popular. Typical edge and corner wear account for any points lost, as the image is well-registered and balanced well between white borders.
