    1933 Sport Kings Gum Ty Cobb #1 SGC NM+ 86 Topping even Babe Ruth for the number one spot (the Bambino was card number two), the tough kid from Georgia starts off a set that features the best from Golden Age boxing (Dempsey, Tunney), hockey (Shore, Bailey),football (Grange, Thorpe) and beyond. The mixture of Cobb's star power and his appearance as number one in the set (and, of course, the card's advanced age) make this one of the toughest cards to find in a high grade. But don't just take our word for it. Of the thirty-eight Cobb Sport Kings to pass through SGC's service, only one has ever topped it. Furthermore, only one has matched the grade of the offered specimen, leaving it in a two-way tie for salutatorian of the class. Take away the light touch on the bottom right corner, and this one is definitely the teacher's pet.
