The Ty Cobb portrait used for the T206 series has become so much more than a depiction of a man. The formal portrait has reached "iconic" status and even gives collectors a chance to choose a favorite surrounding color. The "Green Portrait" version is noticeably more scarce over the passion fueled "Red" option. This makes this card all the more desired and pursued. The offered "Sweet Caporal Cigarettes - 350 Subjects" example captures your attention thanks to a blemish-free portrait boasting deep saturation and precise print registration that is surrounded by a bright and clean frame. The back is clean. Gentle wear of the corners and centering accounts for the majority of the points passed resulting in a well-deserved PSA EX-MT 6 assessment. This is a strong mid-grade example with a mesmerizing portrait with a softness that only elevates its nostalgic appeal. Considering the prices now being achieved by cards with higher technical grades, this card certainly must be considered a wise acquisition.
