    1912 T227 Miners Extra Ty Cobb SGC EX+ 5.5 - The Highest Graded SGC-Example! There truly is little we can say about Ty Cobb that hasn't been put to print. He is a baseball legend who in the decade from which this card appeared saw one man amass 1,897 hits, score over 1,000 runs, steal 526 bases and bat .383 and even hit 41 home runs. The Georgia Peach would strike out an average 31 times per season. The MLB average in 2017 was eight strikeouts per game. His cards are treasured additions with his T227 card ranking as one of his finest.

    The commanding waist-high portrait of the Georgia Peach is generally considered his best looking card collectible. Colors are simply amazing over a century later. Print registration is precise with central graphics very nicely centered. The back displays "Miners Extra" tobacco advertising. Any minor condition issues fail to detract from the classic image of the greatest batter that the game will ever see. Grades SGC EX+ 5.5. This is currently the heavyweight champ of T227 Cobb cards from the thirty other SGC contenders. The number of graded T206 Cobb cards is in the thousands.

    The hammer price for my Mantle card significantly exceeded my admittedly conservative estimations, and I couldn't be more pleased.
