    1921 E253 Oxford Ty Cobb PSA EX+ 5.5. Oxford Confectionery is not a term one reads often in auction catalogs. This very scarce and highly obscure series from 1921 is noted for the high percentage of Hall of Famers appearing among its modest 20 subjects. A key E253 is baseball legend Ty Cobb. The gritty print quality only enhances the grizzled facial features of an aging legend, hardened by years of inner turmoil and corrosive hate for many of his fellow athletes and fans. An ideal middle grade example, only light corner wear and one small spot stain on the reverse accounts for the technical grade. A scarce collectible that is just a neat card to have in one's collection.
