Ty Cobb, the meanest man who ever played the game, so they say.

 

CLOSE WINDOW

In 1915, America was debating whether to join the war which embroiled Europe. But on a sunny Summer afternoon, far removed from such concerns, a kid in Detroit or Chicago or New York pulled this Ty Cobb baseball card out of a box of Cracker Jack®. It must have been a prized souvenir, and was tucked away for safekeeping those 90 years ago. Somehow it survived two World Wars, the Depression, and generations of handling, re-appearing to us now almost exactly as when it was first admired in that long-gone baseball park.


Amazing ... it's extremely rare to see a card of this age get a professional grading this high. This company's grading of 92 – which is the equivalent of  “mint-near mint” – combined with its age, plus the fact that it's a star player, means that this card’s value is at least twice as much as the next grade down ... in this case, low-mid-5 figures!
