1909-11 T206 Ty Cobb Portrait Red Background PSA NM-MT 8. Few vintage cards are capable of enlivening a collection in the manner brought about by the introduction of a top-quality T206. If the card happens to feature Ty Cobb as its subject, the effect is even more pronounced, and the Portrait Red Background version - seen here - is best of all! The great player's penetrating gaze on this marvelously well-conceived insert commands special reverence among fans of all ages. It's a hundred-year-old classic that boasts enduring appeal, and it's a collectible that will doubtless inspire fascination for yet another century or two.

    Among more than 900 copies of this depiction validated by PSA, just one has been graded higher. On the face of this abundantly praiseworthy specimen, Cobb's visage projects with almost startling clarity, and the brightness of his memorable surrounding hue has remained completely undiminished by time's aging influences. Unforgiving examination intended to expose mostly non-existent faults reveals, perhaps, a whisper of clean wear at the top-left corner, and the card's "Sweet Caporal - 350 Subjects" reverse-side design is boldly inked.
