    1912 S81 Silks Ty Cobb SGC EX/NM 6 - Pop One, One Higher. Offered is a stunning 1912 S81 Helmar Silk premium featuring the immortal Ty Cobb. It required a great deal of smoking and 25 coupon saving to acquire these beautiful baseball player silks. Today, these condition sensitive pieces are very scarce, usually with condition issues and above all are highly prized entries into any vintage collection. The images are wonderfully rendered and printed onto the fine surface. Offered is the key name on the S81 roster - Ty Cobb. Measuring a full 6-7/8" x 8-7/8" with a thick outer border what helped keep the tiny fibers from fraying. The silk shows not a single tear, none of the typical crinkling and waviness one usually sees nor any staining. A wonderful treasure waiting to enhance your vintage/Cobb collection. Graded SGC EX/NM 6. The second finest of only four graded by SGC. It also ranks as one of the finest on record with SGC for this series.
