The T206 Ty Cobb "Green Background" portrait card continues to be the most desirable of that issue's four Cobbs, outpacing the others as prices skyrocket, due to perceived scarcity and also due to its pure beauty.  This example has been graded POOR 1 by PSA, the technical grade resulting from overall wear and a pronounced horizontal crease breaking the surface of the card near Cobb's neckline.  Cobb's image remains strong, the bulk of the wear and soiling to the card appearing outside the image area of the card.  The primary condition flaw here appears on the reverse in the form of a large area of paper loss at the top right, likely the result of scrapbook removal.  Despite the accuracy of the technical grade, a strong example of one of the popular issue's most important cards.
