There are only a handful of baseball cards that, that by one simple glance, fully transcend time back to the origins of America’s National pastime. One such card is the eminent Ty Cobb portrait pose T206, portraying Carl Horner’s majestic Cobb headshot pose. This Cobb artifact is synonymous with everything baseball represents, with every aspiring enthusiast seeking to add one to their collection. With that in mind, presented here is a brilliant example of Cobb’s green background portrait,with a very rare Old Mill back. The T206 Cobb is listed as one of the card hobby’s top 250 sports cards, and no one would argue considering the accomplishments of Cobb’s illustrious career. Still the author of baseball’s highest lifetime batting average (.367), Cobb personified the overall makeup of a complete ballplayer, and was one of baseball’s five original Hall of Famers. His representation on this spectacular artifact is un-improvable! The iconic Carl Horner portrait pose provides brilliant registration and coloring, set against a perfect solid green background that is the more valuable variation of the two portrait backgrounds. A blemish free Old Mill back exhibits vivid registration, completing this magnificent example of one of Baseballs greatest players.
