    Description

    1933 Goudey "Sport Kings" Ty Cobb #1 PSA NM+ 7.5. While there is little dispute that the Wagner T206 inhabits the throne as king of the card collecting world, back in 1910 Ty Cobb was presented, albeit briefly, as the "King of the Smoking Tobacco World." A re-coronation of sorts occurred in 1933 when Goudey's "Sports Kings Gum" confirmed his status as baseball card royalty. Topping even Babe Ruth for the number one spot (the Bambino was card number two), the tough kid from the state of Georgia starts off a commemorative issue that features the best from the Golden Age of boxing (Dempsey, Tunney), hockey (Shore, Bailey), football (Grange, Thorpe) and many others. Cobb's eternal star power made him an easy choice as the number one card. Graded PSA NM+ 7.5. The lone card in NM+ with thirty rated higher. Centering rests perfectly with its cardboard confines. Corner wear is limited to the outer tips and seen mainly with the aid of magnification. Surfaces are clean leaving a brilliant portrait of the aging titan.
