Description

    1915 Cracker Jack Ty Cobb #30 PSA VG-EX 4. Although there was nothing that the word "sweet" would accurately describe the Georgia Peach, he does rank as the first or second most desirable entry from the hobby's most popular candy issue. Distributed inside boxes of Cracker Jacks or via mail-in offer, this card appeared during what was another batting crown season for Cobb. What a thrill it must have been for a young child or an adult with a sweet tooth to pull out this card during a season that saw Cobb steal 96 bases, manage 208 hits and bat .369!
    Graded PSA VG-EX 4 This is a beautiful example of one of Cobb's best card collectibles. The bold coloring and artful portraiture that characterize the set are entirely evident and seem tailor-made to honor baseball's finest. At first review this is an excellent-mint to near-mint card. A very up-close review shows some surface roughness along the top portion of the reverse. Some lettering is affected. Surfaces are clean enough to eat off, colors are vivid and crisp. Corners all show nicely defined 90-degree angles. A beautiful card seemingly once housed in an album that has very dutifully protected it for the last 100+ years.


    Guide Value or Estimate: $20,000 - up.

    Auction Type
    Signature Internet Extended Bid: These Auctions are presented via catalog and online. Bidding is taken through our website or via phone. There are two phases of bidding during this type of auction: 1) Normal bidding: Bids are taken up until 10 PM CT the night the auction closes. 2) 30 Minute Ending: On a lot-by-lot basis, starting at 10:00 PM CT, any person who has bid on the lot previously may continue to bid on that lot until there are no more bids for 30 minutes. For example, if you bid on a lot during Normal Bidding, you could participate during Extended Bidding for that lot, but not on lots you did not bid on previously. If a bid was placed at 10:15, the new end time for that lot would become 10:45. If no other bids were placed before 10:45, the lot would close. If you are the high bidder on a lot, changing your bid will not extend the bidding during the 30 Minute Ending phase (only a bid from another bidder will extend bidding). If you are the only bidder at 10 PM, you will automatically win the lot at 10:30. Important: After normal bidding ends, you must be signed-on to the Heritage site to see the bidding option on lots where you qualify for extended bidding.
