    Description

    1909-11 T206 Piedmont Ty Cobb 350-460/42 (Bat Off Shoulder) PSA NM 7. In 1910, the date of this card's debut, Tyrus Raymond Cobb was about to embark on one of the greatest 10-year spans of any player who ever played the game. His league-leading numbers that season are staggering: .383 average, 194 hits, 35 doubles, 13 triples, 91 RBIs and 65 stolen bases simply set the stage for Detroit fans! 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 in 1911. Look closely at the image of the Peach, painted close to a century ago, and you can see it in his eyes. It is one of the finest portraits in the long and impressive history of baseball card art.

    Graded PSA NM 7. The glowing white borders that surround the "Bat Off Shoulder" illustration yields a high level of color quality and freshness, as well as being precisely centered. The corners yield to only mild amounts of wear at the tips. This card is no ordinary card. The reverse displays the familiar "Piedmont - 350-460 Subjects" ad but the bottom reveals a scarce factory 42 caption. There are almost 1,000 examples of this card graded by PSA and hundreds of them are confirmed with the Piedmont brand. The PSA census shows only six confirmed cards with the "42" factory variant.
