Wildly popular as the Tigers were on a tear from 1907-09, appearing in (and losing) three straight World Series', Ty Cobb graced the T206 set with four cards.  This Piedmont 150 (Factory 25) pose was issued in the second wave of T206 and features the bright yellow and green "Bat on Shoulder" pose. Graded by SGC at a 2.5, the front exhibits some period tobacco product residue and a small spot of paper loss on the left border.  The registration and color are superb, with a subtle sunset transition midfield and a faraway grandstand barely visible in the gloaming. The reverse shows signs of having once been affixed to taped mount at the top and  also has a small dot of foxing or toning on the right side.  Cobb attracts a strong following among vintage collectors to this day, a trend that shows no sign of abating.
