    Description

    1910-12 P2 Sweet Caporal Pins Ty Cobb, Small Letters PSA Mint 9. This extremely scarce pin issued by cigarette manufacturer Sweet Caporal uses the portraiture seen on this baseball legend's T205 card. It's interesting to note that the makers of the pins themselves were none other than Whitehead & Hoag, who also designed many of the World Series press pins from 1912 through 1927. Their fine craftsmanship is clearly evident in this ultra-high grade offering, one of only four to merit the grade of Mint 9, with a single example surpassing. Only the mildest degree of wear on verso spares this specimen placement in a gem mint holder, as the face clearly deserves such a designation.
