The T206 Ty Cobb "Green Background" card continues to be the most desirable of the four Cobbs, outpacing the others as prices skyrocket, due to perceived scarcity and also due to its pure beauty.  This example has been graded GOOD+ 2.5 by SGC, due largely to a visible wrinkle that breaks the surface of the card, beginning at the top edge and extends southwest past Cobb's cheek.  Corner wear is also consistent with the grade, however, the image quality and print registration are exceptional, and since the wrinkle does not encroach into Cobb's image itself, the eye appeal remains acceptable.
