    1911 E94 George Close Candy Ty Cobb SGC Authentic. Identical in design to the E93 Standard Caramel card, this example provides a blue background for the Georgia Peach instead, one of seven color combinations seen within the issue. It's also noteworthy that the Close cards were issued with eleven back variations--ten with overprinting featuring the various candy products marketed by Close, and the eleventh with only the original checklist. Here we encounter that eleventh format. Typical corner wear is the only apparent fault, as the color and registration is wonderful, and even the centering is well within the acceptable range. SGC has deemed that this example has been trimmed at some point over the last ninety seven years, thus giving it the designation of Authentic and allowing one lucky collector the opportunity to place this tough Hall of Fame single into their collection at a fraction of the typical price.
