    1911-14 D304 Brunners Bread Ty Cobb SGC 40 VG 3. The most sought-after entry from a short-lived, regionally focused, and very rare production, is this visually engaging memento of Ty Cobb. "The Georgia Peach" reigns as an undisputed highlight within any vintage collection with special prominence within the D304 family. It holds court as a most prized piece in a Cobb specific assembly. As inherently perishable as the "Butter Krust" loaves they once accompanied, the colorful D304's have few peers in the industry in terms of elusiveness or mystique. The series' personality is endearing -- on how many other cards is Ty Cobb actually smiling? Its artful employment of color makes the viewer wish that the products of General Baking Co. had been much more widely distributed. Only a substantial rewriting of history changes the fact that a relatively low supply of General Baking cards survived and only a tiny fraction of those that did endure picture the legendary Cobb.

    This example has few faults. Wholly acceptable corner wear, some very faint spot surface toning/soiling and two slight wrinkles at two corners to note which accounts for the SGC 40 VG 3 grade. Hues are bright and centering of the all-too important unique portrait is close to precise. The SGC census accounts for just twenty-one total submissions of the Brunners Bread reverse. This is one of three at the grade level with a half-dozen documented higher. This is one of the most sought after Cobb card collectibles and a formidable example few others could challenge. We should add this example is being presents at auction for the first time.
