In 1909, the Philadelphia Caramel Co. produced a 25-card set including a myriad of Hall of Famers such as Ty Cobb, Honus Wagner, Christy Mathewson and many more. Like most pre-WWI issues, the most desirable and valuable subject is the immortal Tyrus Raymond Cobb and presented here in an absolutely outstanding PSA 5 specimen for what is arguably considered one of the “Georgia Peach’s” most popular cards. Substantiating the E95 condition sensitivity is PSA’s “pop” charts indicating of the 120 encapsulated Cobb’s, less than 10 have been graded higher! Any artifact of the incomparable Ty Cobb is highly sought after by elite enthusiasts, let alone this ultra-desirable offering. The “Georgia Peach” is one of the five original HOF members, the owner of baseball’s highest lifetime average (.367), and undoubtedly one of baseballs five greatest position players to ever grace the diamond. The controversial, fiery Detroit outfielder had no piers as a “five tool” pre-WWI player, prompting collectors to actively pursue his obscure cardboard artifacts. Cobb was very familiar with being the best at everything he associated himself with, and likewise, this miraculous representation of the incomparable legend has a limited number of peers. This E95 gem provides the radiant eye appeal enthusiasts are actively seeking for their Hall of Fame collections. Even more rewarding is the Ty Cobb portrait pose gracing the card; a unique image of the fiery Tiger legend for any ‘T” of “E” card. The eye appeal of the majestic Cobb is virtually pristine, exhibiting a brilliant blend of grey tones and facial colored hues that are immensely projected by a seemingly flawless cranberry red background. Atypically, the image reflects fine centering between snow-white borders, with the technical assessment primarily due to four lightly touched corners. No glaring flaws are evident on either side, and the 25-subject checklist is bold/vivid. This suffices as a great opportunity to purchase a scarce mid-grade E95 Cobb that seldom surfaces at this grade, and a card that would immediately augment any sophisticated Ty Cobb or E95 compilation!
