    1911 T5 Pinkerton Cabinets Ty Cobb (Fielding) #170 SGC Authentic - Only Three Recorded on the SGC and PSA Census. The Pinkerton name applies to a precious few promotions, including the format presented here, a cabinet card available only through a coupons exchange program. Period advertising reported a roster of 376 possible names to acquire, but this figure stands in sharp contrast to the census recorded in modern times. There is no question that the vast majority that once existed has fallen to the slings and arrows of time's passage. Each cabinet represents the coupling of a fragile glossy photo and a 4-3/4" x 7-3/4" base of either paper or card stock construction. This heavy card mount is the more coveted variety, and it should go without saying that the great Ty Cobb serves as a key entry in the set.

    Encapsulated SGC Authentic. This is currently one of just three examples on record with SGC. The PSA population report shows nothing. The fielding portrait of Cobb is unique to this issue and displays both fine detail and bold contrast resulting is a striking display one could not expect more from. Close inspection of the image area reveals slight spot stains in the lower right. The cardboard mount has no notable flaws only adding to its appeal. This is an entry that would grade well, adhesive added to the bottom reverse of the image-Pinkerton cabinets were issued with only the top affixed to the mount-is the lone reason for the "Authentic" assessment. A premier Cobb collectible and one where it seems no more than a handful may exist.
