    Description

    1909-11 T206 Sweet Caporal 350/30 Ty Cobb (Green Portrait) PSA VG-EX 4. In very much the same way the four Babe Ruth cards from the 1933 Goudey series have captivated generation after generation and have come to represent the entire era, so too have the four cards from the T206 edition featuring Ty Cobb. The grade seems to mean nothing to the fervent group of collectors who own this card or are still pursuit.

    Offered is a 1909-11 T206 card featuring Ty Cobb "Green Portrait" with a "Sweet Caporal - 350 Subjects" ad and factory 30 caption. The ideal midgrade example. Totally acceptable corner wear and a lone corner crease have failed to impact the visual appeal of the tightly registered and precisely centered portrait. Graded PSA VG-EX 4. After reviewing submissions now approaching the 1,000 level, there are only thirty-one confirmed with this brand/series/factory combination. One of only four cards graded VG-EX with seven rated higher.


    Guide Value or Estimate: $12,000 - up.
