(LOT 46)
1909 T206 Ty Cobb Bat On Shoulder "Piedmont 150 Subjects (PSA EX 5)

Arguably speaking, a handful of the most desirable "turn of the century" baseball cards are the four different Ty Cobb T206 cards issued between 1909 and 1911, justifying why it comes as little surprise that record-breaking values for all four Cobbs are currently being realized for all technical assessments. The "Georgia Peach" arguably stands as the supreme baseball legend from that era, and no baseball card carries his legacy more prominently than a stellar T206 artifact. Enthusiasts scramble to obtain at least one, if not all four, of the Ty Cobb T206 variations that are included in PSA's illustrious "Top 250 Sportscards in the Hobby" publication, and presented here is a fine T206 Ty Cobb "Bat On Shoulder" Piedmont 150 Subjects" PSA EX/5 specimen. Regarding Cobb's unparalleled legacy, there isn't enough space in the catalog to list his seemingly infinite number of superlatives, with his record .366 career average and 12 batting titles over a 13 season stretch (including 9 in a row) the ultimate highlights of his remarkable career.

Synonymous with Cobb's worldly achievements is this highly coveted memento, depicting all of the required attributes associated with the desirable mid-grade assessment. Starting with the spectacular gray oriented hues on his classic Tigers uniform as well as the detailed intensity emanating from his facial expression, Cobb's image nearly "comes to life" as he prepares to stroke one of his 4,189 safeties with his vintage lumber. More impressively, the brilliant yellow setting additionally enhanced by a rich array of orange, blue and green hues, portrays a superb setting. The only major visual blemish is the image's favoritism towards the left edge, with the technical assessment primarily due to corner wear. With Cobb's T206 pricing points escalating each and every day (having nearly doubled in the past few years, we highly advise you to seize this prized offering before it reaches a pricing level that outdistances your budget!
