The 1912 T202 Triple Folders are certainly among the nicest offerings from the remnants of the old American Tobacco Trust. With two end flaps folding over a central black-and-white photo, in this case the uber-iconic "Desperate Slide for Third" featuring none other than Ty Cobb, spikes flashing and out for blood. O'Leary flanks to the left while Cobb rakes up the right flap.  Centering as a bit low and the color registration is imprecise on both end cards. Some creasing is evident but the look is still there.  The reverse of this SGC 1.5 is all there, in a mellow red typeface from Hassan Factory 30 . How can you beat two Cobb's on one card?!
