The E121 American Carmels are one of more comprehensive 1920's issues, and this example of Ty Cobb throwing from the Series of 120 is one of two poses he has in the set.  The image here of Cobb is striking and also unfamiliar as he's typically found in batting or portrait poses in other sets, with the occasional sliding in a cloud of dust action shot livening things up. The example has clean, wide borders all around, which remain bright despite some light foxing along the edges that does not extend into the picture. The reverse remains bright and the black text is clear. PSA has graded 46 Cobbs in this pose, with there being only five assigned grades higher than the PSA 4 seen here.
