Description

    1912 T227 Honest Long Cut Ty Cobb SGC 30 Good 2. The title of the T227 series is "Series of Champions." The larger sized cards can be found with two tobacco brands: Honest Long Cut and Miner's Extra. The set features four of baseball's finest, each portrait unique to the series. Ty Cobb was honored as one of the four baseball subjects. The commanding waist-high portrait of the "Georgia Peach" is considered by many to be one of his best-looking card collectibles (A Pinkerton cabinet that uses the same batting pose is available elsewhere in this auction).

    The offered card has obvious corner wear and visible creasing. This has failed to significantly detract from the classic image. The bold hues are still rich and supple, resulting in a card with presentation quality that contradicts the technical grade. The back displays the "Miner's Extra" tobacco advertising and has been graded SGC 30 Good 2. A solid example of a card no vintage collection or Ty Cobb specialist should be without.
