Outstanding horizontal postcard picturing Ty Cobb in his rookie season of 1907, considered along with the Dietsche, Wolverine News and Novelty Cutlery postcards to be the rookie cards of the Georgia Peach.  Prices for the various 1907 postcard and photo issues related to Cobb continue to skyrocket as collectors covet the earliest collectibles related to the great Tigers outfielder.  This example boasts strong eye appeal for the grade, some minor chipping and staining evident here and there, along with general surface, corner and edge wear consistent with the grade.  The postcard was postally used in October of 1907.  An exceptional piece, one of Cobb's more desirable early collectibles.
