Description

    1909-11 T206 Sweet Caporal Ty Cobb (Portrait, Green) PSA EX+ 5.5. The Ty Cobb portrait used for the T206 series has become so much more than a depiction of a man. The formal portrait has reached "icon" status and even gives collectors a chance to choose a favorite surrounding color. The "Green Portrait" version is noticeably more scarce over the passion fueled "Red" option. This makes this card all the more desired and pursued.
    The offered "Sweet Caporal" 150 Subjects example is a true attention grabber thanks to a vibrant and blemish-free frame that surrounds a close to perfectly centered portrait that would be challenging to improve upon thanks to the deep saturation of the still fresh hues and precise print registration. The back is clean save for a lone spot stain in the bottom border. Gentle wear of the corners accounts for the vast majority of the points passed resulting in a well-deserved PSA EX+ 5.5 assessment. This is a very strong mid-grade example with a virtually un-improvable portrait, easily exceeding its technical grade in visual strength. Considering the prices now being achieved by cards with higher technical grades, this card certainly must be considered a wise investment as it stands toe-to-toe on visual appeal.
