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 any single version of the four different Ty Cobb T206 cards issued between 1909 and 1911. The “Georgia Peach” is the unparalleled star of baseball’s “turn of the century” era and no baseball card carries his legacy more prominently than a high grade T206 artifact. Unquestionably, the T206 tobacco issue is the most prestigious group of pre-WWI cards in circulation. Whether it is their incredible array of colors, colossal 524 player checklist or simply the Wagner “Holy Grail” T206 subject, no vintage card set possibly matches up against this “monster” issue. With that in mind, enthusiasts scramble to obtain at least one, if not all four, of the Ty Cobb T206 variations that are all included as the hobby’s top 250 sportscards. With that in mind, presented here is an absolutely scintillating Ty Cobb Sweet Caporal “Bat Off Shoulder” T206 gem in a Nr -Mint Plus holder. A 1936 charter member of baseball’s illustrious Hall of Fame, any century old Cobb relic is worthy of Cooperstown cardboard status, let alone an example that still resides in a remarkable near mint state. His representation on this spectacular artifact is virtually un-improvable! Starting with the spectacular grey 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 4,191 hits with his vintage lumber. More impressively, the background brilliance, courtesy of radiant yellow, orange, blue and green colored tints, is one of the best settings we have ever come across on this variation. The overall aesthetics of this high grade “Georgia Peach” masterpiece are very consistent with the technical assessment. It isn’t every hobbyist who can boast that their collection includes a 100 year old near mint Cobb baseball card, justifying why the time is now to elevate your collection!
