    1909-1911 T206 Sweet Caporal Ty Cobb (Bat On Shoulder) PSA NM-MT 8. While the issue was not the earliest to celebrate our National Pastime, the American Tobacco Trust assembly that has come to be cataloged as the "T206" is widely recognized as the first great baseball set. And though short-printed rarities like Honus Wagner and Eddie Plank continue to reign in monetary rankings, the four entries celebrating the Georgia Peach continue to hold dominance among those cards enjoying a full production run.

    Presented is a particularly fitting tribute to the man who was quoted as saying, "I've got to be first all the time, in everything." It's one of nineteen "Bat on Shoulder" varieties from tobacco's most popular issue rating PSA NM-MT 8, with not a single superior example of the more than 1,000 currently recorded on the PSA census. As the lofty assessment would suggest, there is very little to discuss in terms of physical shortcomings, which appear to be limited to the very lightest of corner touches. Image color and registration are essentially unimprovable, and the centering within the borders is likewise bordering perfection.

    The hammer price for my Mantle card significantly exceeded my admittedly conservative estimations, and I couldn't be more pleased.
