Well-handled, collector-grade example of one of the more beautiful and iconic cards from the T206 issue.  The Ty Cobb "Bat Off Shoulder" card utilizes an image not seen elsewhere, and features the great Cobb, gripping his bat and intently staring off into the distance.

Well-worn, with significant creasing and staining, the card is well-centered with larger borders.  The opportunity to purchase an original-owner T206 does not come up often, and the Rudy Strejc provenance on this card is an indicator that this was a part of Strejc's childhood collection and passed through two generations in his family.  An outstanding opportunity to pick up a collector-grade Cobb with a more difficult back, knowing it has had just one previous owner.  From the Rudy Strejc Collection.
