    1909-11 T206 Sweet Caporal Ty Cobb (Bat On Shoulder) PSA NM-MT 8 - None Higher! The T206 issue offers a particularly diverse array of stumbling blocks for the collector bent upon full completion--the famous rarities of Wagner, Plank and Magee/Magie, for example--but for those entries having enjoyed an unabridged print run, the Georgia Peach reigns supreme. The 1909-11 production range of this beloved set appears at the center of an unbroken nine-season span that saw Cobb claim the American League batting title, inspiring the set designers to go heavy on the Tigers great. The inaugural class Hall of Famer appears four times within the American Tobacco Company issue, and this is the second-rarest variation.

    Only a dozen examples of this "Bat on Shoulder" model have found a home in a PSA NM-MT 8 capsule, a rating that stands to this day as the highest ever achieved. We suspect that it is only due to light touches at the corners that this otherwise pristine specimen doesn't stand alone atop the pops, as the colors, registration, surfaces and even the centering find no cause for complaint.
