As prices of T206 Cobb cards continue to escalate, the more difficult back varieties have become more and more desirable among advanced collectors.  Presented here is an example of the Cobb "Bat Off Shoulder" pose, with a tougher Old Mill Cigarettes ad on the reverse. Graded VG-EX 4 by PSA, the card does exhibit some small condition flaws that reduce the technical grade, beginning with a surface blemish near the center of the card, at Cobb's jersey.  The blemish takes the form of a small area of discoloration that may be a light scratch or stain of some sort (it is difficult to determine underneath the plastic holder).  A small light area of faded color can be observed in a tiny area at the top right border, and some minor edge chipping and corner wear is also evident.  Despite these flaws and the top to bottom centering issue, the card boasts strong eye appeal, rich color and a strong reverse.  A very desirable card.
