    Description

    One of two at highest grade!

    1909-1911 T206 Old Mill Ty Cobb (Bat Off Shoulder) PSA NM-MT 8. In 1911, the probable date of this card's birth, Tyrus Raymond Cobb was at the apex of his considerable powers. His league-leading numbers that season are staggering: .420 average, 248 hits, 47 doubles, 24 triples, 127 RBIs, 83 stolen bases! Despite his vicious temperament that likely kept him out of the running other seasons, the American League had no choice but to crown him Most Valuable Player, the only season he was honored as such. Look closely at the image of the Peach, painted close to a century ago, and you can see it in his eyes. Though he stands before a serene background of soft pastel, the stare is one of great determination. It's one of the finest portraits in the long and impressive history of baseball card art.

    Graded PSA NM-MT 8. This is one of two cards that rank as the "Finest Known" with an Old Mill brand reverse. For the brand, there are only twenty on record with PSA. Glowing white borders diverge only minimally from perfect centering, and corners expose only the slightest touches. Otherwise we can identify no caveats worthy of mention. Vivid hues and precise registration combine for a portrait that borders on the unimprovable.
