    1909-11 T206 Lenox-Black Ty Cobb (Red Portrait) PSA VG-EX 4. The now iconic portrait we see of the "Georgia Peach" goes far beyond simply what Cobb looked like. His haunting blue eyes and piercing gaze offer insight inside the man who was so incredibly talented on the baseball diamond but a victim of his personal experiences. He is the subject of hundreds collectibles and not a single one resonates anything short of a fascination as passionate as the man himself. Each and every card on which he appears becomes a beloved keepsake of sports fans young and old alike. Offered is one of his most iconic cards with a wonderful twist revealed thanks to a quick flip of its plastic housing.

    This card is graced with a very rarely encountered "Lenox Cigarettes" ad printed in Black. That makes this "Red Portrait" of Cobb is among the rarest examples of any of T206 tobacco brand. Who doesn't revel in the opportunity to own a card so few others can claim in any condition.

    Graded PSA VG-EX 4. Currently, there are almost 2,000 "Portrait-Red" entries on the PSA census. Only eight - or less than one-half of one-percent - are confirmed to include the Lenox name. Even without the Lenox moniker this card impresses. Centering is a modest percentage away from precise. The portrait is nicely aligned with fabulous color quality. Surfaces are clean. The surrounding border is a bright white. An attractive card with a reverse that generates just as much excitement as does the front.
