    1912 T202 Hassan Ty Cobb Steals Third Cobb/Moriarity PSA NM-MT+ 8.5 - The Highest Graded Example! This highly-coveted tobacco card features Hall of Famer Ty Cobb and teammate George Moriarty guarding what is considered the most famous baseball action photograph in the game's long history - Charles Conlon's "Ty Cobb Steals Third." This Cobb/Moriarty pairing is much more difficult to find than the other Cobb appearances. Currently, there are 61 total examples graded to date compared to 140 for the Cobb/Jennings pairing with this same center scene. This card ranks among the rarest T202s to find in high grade as well and this card is even a step above the "NM-MT" level so desperate hoped for by T202 enthusiasts. Everything one wants from a high grade card is here. There are four exceptionally sharp corner tips, centering is as perfect as one will ever hope to find with a T202, surfaces are 100% problem free - we will mention a very brief, stray smudge of printer's ink on the reverse just for complete accuracy. Anything else that looks like a fault is a tiny imperfection on or in the plastic of the outer holder. The card screams quality from one corner tip to the next, one edge to the other and at all points in between. After over 8,900 T202 submissions, this is one of only eight cards (for the entire set) at this grade or higher. That puts this condition marvel among the top one-tenth of one-percent of all PSA Hassan Triple Folders! Graded PSA NM-MT+ 8.5. This is the reigning champion. Pop One-of-One with none grading higher! An extremely pleasing copy.
