Absolutely perfect condition MINT SGC 9 card of Ty Cobb in his prime, from the beautiful 1915 Cracker jack candy issue. Immaculate card looks like it went right from a factory set into the SGC holder. Factory fresh color with a perfect image that almost seems photographic. Dead centered card with snow with borders and squeaky clean front and back. Razor sharp corners are so sharp they would be dangerous if not encapsulated. The whole package! 1915 would see Cobb hit .369 to lead the American League and take his 10th Batting Title in a row. He also set the major league record for stealing bases with 96, a mark that stood until Dodger speedster Maury Wills broke it 47 years later in 1962. A real gem! Has to be one of if not the best out there as it is only 1 of 2 MINT SGC 96 cards with nothing graded higher. Only 3 cards have been rated 9.
