    One of Three Graded Mint 9 with None Higher!

    1915 Cracker Jack Ty Cobb #30 PSA Mint 9. Feared by most, but respected by all, Tyrus Raymond Cobb was the Machiavellian ideal of the early game, forging his Cooperstown bronze in the fires of natural ability and gritted-teeth determination. Though Cobb's staggering career hits tally of 4,191 was ultimately eclipsed, many batting records remain in the Georgia Peach's sole possession to this day, most notably the .366 career batting average. In 1914, Cobb was at the middle of one of the greatest decades experienced by any player from any era. From 1910-1919 Cobb amassed 1,948 hits, batted .386 (his .368 in '14 is actually his lowest for the term) while striking out only 331 times! Although there was nothing that the word "sweet" would accurately describe the Georgia Peach, he ranks as the first or second most desirable entry from the hobby's most popular candy issue. The bold coloring and artful portraiture that characterize the set are entirely evident and tailor-made to honor Baseball's finest.

    Graded PSA Mint 9! One of just three cards PSA has deemed worthy of the Mint assessment and we shouldn't even have to repeat there are no others rated higher. Suffice to say, in Mint condition, this is one of the finest examples of one of the most desirable Cobb cards in the hobby. The blazing red background compliments his passion and determination. Looking closely at the portrait of the Peach, you can see in his eyes and just feel it in his stance. Extending outward, we come to four white borders, turning at corners as sharp as they were when the card circulated over a century ago. The verso is similarly fine, advanced toning one would expect from any paper product of this vintage has been held to a calm minimum.
