    1909 E95 Philadelphia Caramel Ty Cobb PSA EX-MT 6. It has been said that love makes the world go 'round but in baseball there vis no crying and it is passion that affords the intensity to achieve. Lou Gehrig had an unwillingness to rest after concussions which may have been his undoing. Mickey Mantle lived every day like it was his last, making his last day come too quickly. Ty Cobb brought the same gritted teeth fervor to breaking every record in the books that he did when breaking the jaws of those who disrespected him. "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). The Georgia Peach is honored, many times more than once, in almost every trading card issue of the Dead Ball Era. His inner drive, steely grin and determination that Cobb is known for is captured perfectly on his E95 entry which is why it is one of his most passionately pursued cards.

    Graded PSA EX-MT 6. One of six cards graded EX-MT with four rated higher. Offered is one of the finest examples of this most ideal card of "The Georgia Peach" who could not look any more menacing. While there are thousands of T206 cards graded featuring Cobb of various tobacco brands, there have yet to be 150 of what is supposed to be his a "common" caramel-class appearance. Aged before his years, Cobb looks more like a chiseled veteran as opposed to a multi-talented youngster just a few seasons into his mythical career and on the cusp of his most productive years. Colors are bold and saturated, borders are bright and clean. A very attractive high-end example.

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