    1912 T202 Hassan Ty Cobb Steals Third - Cobb/Jennings PSA NM-MT 8 - Pop Three, None Higher. Considering the T202 series is among the most visually stunning sets of baseball cards ever produced it is hard to imagine there is a card that stands out above the rest. It is a question even the most passionate enthusiast would like to avoid but for many, this favored child would be "Ty Cobb Steals Third." First of all is the central image of Charles Conlon's now iconic scene of the great Cobb doing what he does best next to hitting, stealing a base. This split second moment of time captures the Tigers terror barreling into Highlanders third baseman Jimmy Austin. Taken at Manhattan's Hilltop Park, this image is as revered by sports fans as is any Rembrandt or Picasso gracing the wall of a major art museum. The featured side panels are also ideal choices. On the right is Cobb. On the left is "Hugh" Jennings, who may have been doing his dance just feet away from the action. How quickly history could have been lost had Jennings danced into view.

    Graded PSA NM-MT 8. One of only three cards graded NM-MT with none graded higher. The condition report is simple. The card is quality throughout. Surfaces, edges, corners are all first rate. This is not just a T202 card. This is a card that can define a whole class of cards and represent baseball history.
