Listing Details

Simply an awesome postcard, this is truly rare. We have not seen this piece before, and it looks terrific. This very unusual postcard measures 3 1/2 x 5 1/4, the proper measurement in the Krause guide we checked but nonetheless still possibly short on the bottom border. This is unmailed and very attractive, with clean surfaces and only some fine corner creasing that does not crack the paper. The fairly unique image of a very young Ty Cobb looks great. The market reflects the rarity on this card, as one of these sold in 2011 in an SGC Authentic holder for $6,871, the only public sale we could find. If you are into rare cards of Ty Cobb or just want something that is truly great and rare, than this is something to seriously consider adding to your collection, you may never get another opportunity to do so!
