(LOT 36)
1909-11 T206 Piedmont Ty Cobb Portrait, Red Background 350 Subjects Factory #25 PSA 8 NM-MT

EXCEPTIONAL COBB!!!... Cobb is widely credited with setting 90 MLB records during his career. He still holds several records as of the end of the 2013 season, including the highest career batting average and most career batting titles with 11. He retained many other records for almost a half century or more, including most career hits until 1985, most career runs, until 2001, most career games played (3,035) and at bats until 1974, and the modern record for most career stolen bases (892) until 1977. He still holds the career record for stealing home (54 times) and as the youngest player to compile 4,000 hits and score 2,000 runs.

Cobb ranks fifth all-time in number of games played and committed 271 errors, the most by any American League (AL) outfielder. Offered here is one of Baseball's historic Cards at its best. The HOF legend Cobb presented in a beautiful portrait without his cap, dressed in his gray Detroit uniform showcased against a background that shines like a sunrise. This card has been known to vary in background color with red being the most common. A PSA graded 8 NM-MT is well centered, with nice crisp corners, and amazingly vibrant colors. Bid and make this high end example of a Legend yours!!!
