    Description

    1921 E121 American Caramel-Series of 80 Ty Cobb, Manager PSA EX-MT 6. This card is extracted from the scarce American Caramel Series of 80 (E121) set issued in 1921. The baseball careers of Ty Cobb and Babe Ruth overlapped 14 seasons (1914-28), and the older Cobb was reluctant to let go of his supremacy in the game as it transformed from the dead-ball era to the more modern home-run era. It is from that later era which comes this relic which is quite possibly the highest graded known example for this variation. To date, only five PSA Cobbs (total for both variations) have been graded at the EX-MT level with three attaining higher status. We know two of those three are the "Mgr." variation, making the offered piece, at worst, the second highest graded example known but quite possibly deserving "Pop 1 of 1 with none higher status." Honest corner wear, no creases or wrinkles and clean surfaces characterize this investment quality relic.
