WIth four incredibly attractive cards in the T206 issue, Ty Cobb is certainly well-represented.  It is this version, however, his "Green Background" card that is often considered the most scarce and popular, and routinely eclipses the other three in terms of realized prices.  One of the rare cards where the supply will never exceed the demand, this is certainly the most sought-after attainable card in the wildly popular T206 issue, one that is often the "white whale" of collectors dipping their toes into the T206 pool and possibly Cobb's most famous baseball card.  

Graded VG/EX 50 by SGC, this example is very strong, with rounded corners and better-than-normal L-R centering.  The card, often found with severe top-to-bottom centering problems, exhibits the same here, though less dramatic than with many other examples.  Moderate surface wear is perhaps the card's greatest condition flaw, though Cobb's face is clear and the bold, green background still very strong.  A lovely example of a very, very popular card.

*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."
