    Description

    1909-11 T206 Sweet Caporal 350/25 Ty Cobb (Portrait-Green) PSA EX-MT + 6.5. "In legend," Cobb wrote, shortly before his passing in 1961, "I am a sadistic, slashing, swashbuckling despot who waged war in the guise of sport." The truth, of course, is somewhat more complex than that, but this greatest figure of the Dead Ball Era was unquestionably the most determined ballplayer of his time (and perhaps of all time). Every great ballplayer's yin will have its yang--for Lou Gehrig, his unwillingness to rest after concussions may have been his undoing. Mickey Mantle lived every day like his last, making his last day come too quickly. And Cobb brought the same gritted teeth fervor to breaking every record in the books that he did to breaking the jaws of those who disrespected him.

    Graded PSA EX-MT+ 6.5 The Georgia Peach was honored four times in the most famous trading card issue of the Dead Ball Era, and the presented variation is the rarest of them all. This one presents beautifully with four high-quality corners, deep saturated hues with centering that can't be matched. His iconic portrait is a mesmerizing treat with precision registration.
