There are few cards in the hobby which are hotter than green background T206 Cobbs; it seems that with each sale a new record is set.  Such astronomical prices realized are quickly pricing collectors out of the market when it comes to attractive specimens, and rarely does an example hit the market that appears stronger than the assigned grades, as collectors continuously resubmit lower-grade examples, hoping to move their cards into the highest holders possible.

Such is the case, however, with this specimen, a fine, clear and well-centered example, rich with color and strong print registration. At first glance, the corner and surface wear seem consistent with a higher-grade example, though flipping the card over reveals four larger spots of paper loss, the likely result of scrapbook removal and the reason for the reduction in grade.  A wonderful example of one of the hobby's most sought-after cards with a tougher back, rapidly emerging as one of the key Hall of Famers in the most popular prewar sets ever issued.  Simply a tremendous card.
