    1911 S74 - Colored Silks Old Mill Ty Cobb SGC EX 5. Delicate to the extreme, S74 silks can be found with white or color silk advertising multiple brands of tobacco. Subjects include baseball players and actresses. This auction features both versions of baseball legend Ty Cobb. Offered is a 1911 S74 light blue satin silk with Old Mill Cigarettes advertising and portrait printed in blue. The fragile, approx. 1-7/8 x 3-1/2" silk has been graded SGC EX 5. Flat and clean, the silk shows mild fraying along the top and bottom, an all too common occurrence with this issue. This is one of twenty-one reviewed by SGC. One of two in EX with two rated higher.
