As the dust has settled on the “The Lucky 7 Find,” of a remarkable group of 7 newly discovered T206 Ty Cobb with “Ty Cobb” back cards, SCP Auctions is proud to unveil another previously unknown T206 Ty Cobb with “Ty Cobb” back in this auction.

The Cobb rarity will be henceforth known as “The Matchbox Cobb.”

Brown (HOF), Casey, Chase, Cravath, Doolin, Hartzel, Hickman, Huggins (HOF), Jennings (HOF), Kelley (HOF), Lindaman, Mowrey, Oberlin, Owen, Schulte, Smith, Stephen, Sullivan, Tannehill – Washington, L.
