Of the four cards depicting Ty Cobb in the T206 issue, the "green background" variety has long been considered the most desirable, with some also considering it the most difficult.  Regardless, attractive examples in collector grades are incredibly desirable, the demand always outweighing the considerable supply.  This example, graded PR 1 by SGC, boasts extraordinary eye appeal for the grade, virtually all the condition issues taking place on the card reverse, where both paper loss and scrapbook remnants are evident.  The card image itself is bold and well-registered, with softer corners and edges consistent with a GOOD or GOOD+ grade.  Regardless, a very attractive and highly-regarded card.
