(LOT 214)
1909-11 T206 Ty Cobb Portrait Red Sweet Caporal 350-460/42 PSA 3.5 VG+

RED COBB!!! No baseball card collection can be considered complete without a serious pre-WWI card of the immortal Ty Cobb, and no Cobb cardboard memento could possibly be more renowned than his legendary T206 Red Portrait subject, reflecting the majestic Carl Horner portrait Cobb image. Of the highly coveted four T206 Ty Cobbs, both the "Red" and "Green" portrait poses stand as hobby icons, justifying why this superb PSA 3.5 Red Portrait Cobb merits serious attention from any advanced enthusiast. Still holder of the highest Major League lifetime batting average (.366), Ty Cobb stands tall as one of the Top-5 ballplayers of all-time, as well as being a 1936 charter member of the National Baseball Hall of Fame.

Therefore, it come as little surprise that many of the hobby's most advanced collectors seek his most prized cardboard artifacts, with only a handful possibly carry the prestige of his T206 Portrait subject. Cobb's classic headshot pose portrays outstanding facial colored hues, strong resolution, and a robust red background. Uniform corner wear and a relatively clean Sweet Caporal 350-460/42 Subjects verso are additional highlights of this timeless classic that provides mid-grade aesthetics. One of the "hottest" cards in the hobby substantiate its highly coveted stature!
