Description

    1911 E94 Close Candy Ty Cobb (Green) PSA EX 5 - Pop Three, Three Higher. The greatest name of the Dead Ball era belongs to a man who would give birth to 4,191 hits, a total that stood for decades but topped by a Rose by any other name who needed an addition 2.500 at bats. The most extensively represented baseball figure from the tobacco days, Ty Cobb cards are found in almost every widely circulated card promotion. For the "E" Candy/Caramel collector, Ty Cobb's entry in the E94 George Close candy series is among the most highly prized "E" cards ever made and one that remains on most "Wanted" lists. The issue itself still remains shrouded in mystery but it has been established as a Close Candy set thanks to the overprints found on a small sampling of cards.

    Graded PSA EX 5, one of just three to rate an EX, with only three grading higher. A testament to the "less is more" approach to design, this card bears only three hues but projects a depth and vibrancy usually associated with a full range of colors. This example is bright and fresh with light amounts of corner wear that helps fine tune the technical grade but greatly fails to match visual appeal. Cards from this elusive series can be found with one of seven different color backgrounds. This is a "Green" variant, a color that compliments very nicely with the bright white framing. A commanding acquisition for the Cobb or "E" Candy/Caramel card aficionado.
