Description

    1933 Goudey "Sport Kings" Ty Cobb #1 PSA-Authentic - Unique Patent Card! From the ever popular "Sports Kings" series we offer this example of the first card showcasing baseball legend Ty Cobb. For an added level of appeal this unique entry was once housed by the U.S. Library of Congress and served as official record for Goudey's Big League Chewing Gum. This is the one and only patent card, with unmistakable back stamps of "FEB 28 1934" and "CIA A 139606" on the reverse clearly setting apart this card from an otherwise standard and highly treasured version. This manner of recording is standard procedure for all published material in the US. The card presents at the very-good level with one surface "ding" but no creases or wrinkles. The edges show a roughness from manual separation from the sheet. For this reason and this reason alone the card has been encapsulated PSA Authentic. A great chance to own a truly unique Cobb card collectible.
