    1909-12 P2 Sweet Caporal Pin Ty Cobb, Small Letters PSA Gem MT 10 - Pop One! DESCRIPTION ADDITION: This is the oldest collectible - card or otherwise - featuring Ty Cobb that has been graded Gem MT by PSA!

    When one considers that this promotion was designed to be worn and when collected en masse would scratch upon contact it is nothing short of amazing this pin has survived to earn the first and so far only Gem MT grade from PSA. The makers of the pins themselves was Whitehead & Hoag, who also designed many of the World Series press pins from 1912 through 1927. There is simply nothing to note in regard to condition, at least certainly nothing negative. Positive superlatives could go on at length. There are currently over 10,700 P2 pins in PSA holders. Only five are graded "10!" That places this pin in the top .00046%. The fact that this pin features Ty Cobb is almost too much to ask for. Graded PSA Gem MT 10. A Pop One-of-One! Condition rarity.
