Graded MINT+ 9.5 by SGC. Hall of Famer. "E"-Caramel cards from this series, made by an anonymous national producer to accompany candy, are highly sought-after period collectibles that appear on even the most advanced wantlists ... especially in top-level condition, as offered here. This exceptionally rare and delicate card, picturing Ty Cobb, depicts the legendary hitter in a tinted black-and-white photograph set against a blazing red background. Here, Cobb's likeness is refined and preserved beyond the point that would enable the average vocabulary's powers of descriptive articulation to summarize its splendor. The card's obverse presentation is luscious and intense. Its border framework is impeccable, the back printing is crisp and attractive and its corners are formed with virtually unspeakable precision. Clearly, this is among the very finest E98 Cobb examples in the hobby, in exemplary Mint-plus condition.

Please note: We believe this is the lone copy graded at its tier (with one graded higher) by that company. (Competing grading service PSA has holdered a total of twenty-two 1910 E98 "Set of 30" Ty Cobb, Red PSA MINT 9s, and a pair of PSA GEM MT 10 specimens). Thus, comparing the two population reports, the difficulty of obtaining this card in a lofty SGC grade is far greater than is the case with PSA.

1910 E98 "Set of 30" Ty Cobb, Red – SGC MINT+ 9.5
