Description

    One of just two known!

    1933 Sport Kings Ty Cobb #1, Signed, PSA/DNA NM-MT 8. Update: A full LOA from SGC Authentic is included with this lot.

    Cooperstown would take a cue from the good folks at Goudey, likewise assigning the Georgia Peach the number one spot in its own roster of immortals. But while you can find no shortage of Hall of Fame plaques signed by this peerless terror of the Dead Ball Era, we've calculated the population of autographed examples of his 1933 Sport Kings card at two.

    That skimpy census would render even a ragged cardboard slab a true collecting treasure, but this gorgeous specimen will not disappoint even the most condition-conscious member of our collecting brotherhood. Cobb's black fountain pen signature is flawlessly rendered, making even a glowing NM-MT 8 assessment feel a bit stingy.

    The card itself reveals only the typical faults of edge and corner wear as evidence of its birth way back during the Great Depression, with bright colors, clean registration and even great centering to flaunt its beauty. It's been well over a decade since bidders had a chance to compete for one of these, and who knows how long the next wait will be? Encapsulated by PSA/DNA, NM-MT 8. Full LOA from SGC Authentic.


    Guide Value or Estimate: $20,000 - up.
