Description

    1910 E105 Mello-Mint Ty Cobb PSA Poor 1 - One of Only Two Recorded Examples. Offered here is the one of the rarest "E" cards featuring baseball legend Ty Cobb. If you are a passionate Cobb enthusiast, this is one card missing from most collections. The E105 series promotes "Smith's Mello-Mint - The Texas Gum, a product of the Texas Gum Company of Temple, Texas. The reverse ad is in a distinctive green ink but seen far less often than modern hobbyists would prefer and are found on a thin paper prone to easy condition degradation. The series is an obscure promotion that certainly saw limited distribution in the south and southern mid-west. A sizeable percentage of the known population coming from a couple finds over the years. Offered is one of only two recorded examples of Ty Cobb. Combine the PSA and SGC census and you will find only five submissions. This card graded PSA Poor 1 for obvious reasons, the other has been graded "Fair 1.5." Currently, PSA has reviewed less than 200 E105s, half are rated below the "VG" level.
