    Description

    1909-11 T206 Sweet Caporal Ty Cobb, Red Portrait SGC 84 NM 7. The now iconic portrait we see of the "Georgia Peach" goes so far beyond just what the man looked like. His cold blue eyes and piercing gaze offer insight inside the man who was so incredibly talented on the baseball diamond but so much a victim of his own prejudices. This Sweet Caporal brand "Red Portrait of Ty Cobb is among the finer known examples according to the SGC pop report. To date, this is the only card graded at the impressive 84 NM level with a trio higher. The card has quality corners, close to precise centering and has better print registration than commonly found. An attractive card for both vintage and Cobb specialists.
