Outstanding 1916 Herpolsheimer Co. card of Ty Cobb, graded GOOD 2 by PSA due largely to an upper-left corner clip, along with some minor additional wear.  The image quality is exemplary, as is the ad on the reverse.  An extremely desirable card, one of the undisputed keys to the issue and of course to all the M101-4/5 issues.  Due to their relative scarcity, the Herpolsheimer cards of 1916, which advertise a Michigan clothing store, command a significant premium in comparison to more common issues sharing the M101-4/5 images.  Herpolsheimer Cobb cards seldom become available at public auction; according to our research just four have traded hands in the ten years since our first auction ten years ago.  This particular example has remained in the collection of a long-time Detroit Tigers collector since it was purchased at auction before Love of the Game was even a company.  A tremendous card, exceptionally scarce, a key card from a more obscure card type.
