    1909-11 T206 Sweet Caporal 350/25 Ty Cobb (Portrait-Green) PSA EX-MT 6 - Only Eight Confirmed for Brand/Series/Factory Combination. The Carl Horner portrait of Ty Cobb was taken during the earlies years of his illustrious career was destined for immortality. Its use as inspiration for Cobb's two portrait cards in the T206 series has resulted in the image becoming so much more than a mere depiction of the man. The formal portrait has reached "icon" status becoming the definitive depiction of the immensely talented and complex athlete. The "Green Portrait" version is noticeably more scarce over the passion fueled "Red" option making this card all the more desired and pursued with auction results showing the current trend.

    Graded PSA EX-MT 6. The overall total PSA pop is over 900 submissions (w/any qualified). Over two-hundred fifty are confirmed with a Sweet Caporal brand back but less than ten - eight currently - are noted on the PSA census! One of only two graded EX-MT which are tied as the highest graded on record with PSA of this obviously rare brand/series/fac combination. The offered card displays a portrait boasting rich hues and precise print registration, all surrounded by a bright and clean frame. The back is clean, the lone print fault is a spot of black ink which gets largely lost in the deep green background. Mild to modest wear at the corners and centering accounts for the majority of the points passed in grading. This is a solid, mid-grade example with a haunting portrait with a softness that only elevates its nostalgic appeal.
