Perhaps the most popular card of Ty Cobb, few attainable prewar cards are more instantly recognizable and iconic as the T206 Red Background portrait card.  This example is an extremely attractive collector-grade specimen, graded FR 1.5 by SGC for two light but visible diagonal creases across the surface, along with general wear at the corners and edges, most notably at the top left.  The card is clean and well-registered, however, and centering is exemplary.  The Sweet Caporal 350 (Factory 30) reverse is clear, with some minor staining near the bottom of the card, consistent with the grade.  A very strong, collector-grade example of one of the hobby's most desirable and popular prewar cards.
