    1911 M110 Sporting Life Cabinet Ty Cobb PSA Good+ 2.5. Offered is one of the more challenging Cobb card collectibles - his 1911 Sporting Life Cabinet we simply refer to as "M110." In 1911, Tyrus Raymond Cobb was at the apex of his considerable powers. His league-leading numbers that season seem utterly improbable to even the most talented batsmen of the 21st Century: .420 average, 248 hits, 47 doubles, 24 triples, 127 RBIs, 83 stolen bases! Despite his vicious temperament that likely kept him out of the running other seasons, the American League had no choice but to crown him Most Valuable Player, the only season he was honored as such. Look closely at the image of the Peach you can still see the stare of great determination in his eye and clenched cheek. Though he stands before a background of no detail your imagination puts you in the scene as it took place over 100 years ago.

    The Sporting Life cabinet premiums compare in size to the Turkey Reds of the same era but are much more difficult to find. Also, these cabinets don't have the added benefit of a thick card stock, they are considerably thinner and almost always found in low grade with every condition ailment possible. Graded PSA Good+ 2.5, this example shows modest corner and edge wear and small spot stains. There are no creases or wrinkles. Along the top border on the reverse is some surface roughness including mild areas of surface loss to account for the grade.
