Sharp and colorful example of the T206 Ty Cobb "Bat on Shoulder" card, graded NM 7 by PSA. Light corners and a very slight centering issue reduce the technical grade slightly but clearly not its visual appeal, the card seems almost new, as if it was pulled from its pack yesterday. Despite the plentiful nature of T206 cards, high-grade specimens remain elusive, just 20 examples with confirmed Piedmont backs graded at this level by PSA, with only 15 higher. Indeed, this pose in this grade seems to become available at public auction only once a year or so, and appears to have tripled in price over the last five years, the most recent example selling for $36,000 earlier this spring. As Cobb's cards continue to reach new heights with each sale, this is one of the finest examples at this level that you are likely to see, a sharp and colorful specimen.
