    1910 Carolina Brights Ty Cobb, Red Portrait PSA EX 5. Before one even considers looking at the reverse, this is one impressive looking T206 Ty Cobb Portrait variation, his glaring blue eyes complimented by a blood red field. All of this surrounded by a white frame with a few spots of faint soiling. The reverse displays a boldly printed stylized "Carolina Brights" advertisement. The boldly printed back shows every millimeter of thin lines which frame the copy or act as adornment in each corner. "Carolina Brights" are among the 2nd tier of rare backs associated with the massive T206 production. To date, only 66 copies have been submitted to PSA, the red portrait Cobb accounts for four of them. This is by far the highest graded sample known the other three Carolinas are an "A" and two "PR-FR specimens. The Red Portrait Cobb is a staple of many vintage collections but only a precious few can claim "Carolina Brights" bragging rights to the "Georgia Peach."
