(LOT 299)
1932 U.S. Caramel #14 Ty Cobb PSA 8 NM-MT

INCREDIBLE COBB!!! "Cobb is a prick. But he sure can hit. God Almighty, that man can hit." - Babe Ruth I'd say that the Babe summed up the country's opinion of Ty Cobb "to a T." Americans have always loved their heroes almost as much as they loved to hate their bad-boys! A hundred years later and nothings changed. Cobb was Cobb. But regardless of how people felt about him, they still paid to watch him play. In every city, ballparks were crammed to watch, make that witness the great Cobb play the game like no one before, or after him, ever has. Even Tyrus his own self said shortly before his death "In legend I am a sadistic, slashing, swashbuckling despot who waged war in the guise of sport."

You must admire a man that knows who, and what he is. This extremely popular '32 Caramel card is certainly one of Cobb's rarest issues, in any grade. This nicely centered bold beauty is just one of twelve that has been graded PSA NM/MT 8 with only three examples graded higher. This is the type of card that will no doubt be of interest to outside the hobby investors, as well as all in the hobby that have been waiting for a scarce high grade Cobby to proudly add to their collection!
