    Description

    1909-11 T206 Old Mill Ty Cobb (Red Portrait) PSA EX-MT 6. In 1911, Ty Cobb was at the apex of his considerable powers. His league-leading numbers that season are staggering: .420 average, 248 hits, 47 doubles, 24 triples, 127 RBIs, 83 stolen bases! Despite his vicious temperament that likely kept him out of the running other seasons, the American League had no choice but to crown him Most Valuable Player, the only season he was honored as such. Look closely at the image of the Peach, taken well over a century ago, and you can see it in his eyes. He sits here before a fiery red backdrop so profoundly appropriate and the ideal complement to the stare which is one of great determination. It's one of the finest portraits in the long and impressive history of baseball card art.

    Graded PSA EX-MT 6. This Old Mill/Red Portrait combo has been confirmed by PSA just sixty-eight times from a total pop that is approaching 2,000 submissions. There are eleven in EX-MT with three higher. Glowing white borders boldly encase - almost perfectly - a portrait of exceptional hues and precise print registration. Corners expose mild to modest levels of wear. Otherwise we can identify no caveats worthy of mention. At this level of quality, product branding is almost irrelevant.
