Of the four cards depicting Ty Cobb in the T206 issue the "green background" variety is considered the most desirable and some consider it the most scarce. Regardless attractive examples in collector grades are incredibly desirable the demand always outweighing the considerable supply. This example graded FAIR by SGC suffers primarily from a pronounced lower-right corner crease but also exhibits wrinkling throughout and significant corner and edge wear. Despite all this the card presents extremely well for such a low grade an outstanding example of a visually appealing collector grade card and a key to the T206 issue. Population Data SGC Population: 110 total graded 25 at this level 97 higher PSA Population: 188 total graded 3 at this level 127 higher* *Please note that PSA just recently began to differentiate between T206 back variations in their population reports so it is entirely possible that other examples of this card may have been graded by PSA and classified in their pop reports as "unknown back."
