Critically Important Pre-War Investment Piece

Among the very finest pre-war investment pieces we’ve brokered in our history. Few productions hold a flame to the T3 Turkey Reds. Imagine the risk of that issue to produce a premium of such size, in a market where traditional tobacco-sizes dominated. What transpired was an issue which has few comparisons and is generally regarded by many advanced collectors to be the most beautiful pre-war trading card production ever made. The offered Ty Cobb is the single finest example we’ve brokered in our history and represents the lynchpin figure from the 100 card T3 issue. Beautifully preserved throughout, boasting undeniably EXMT qualities tip to tip. Very light wear to the upper right extreme point and other mild signs of circulation at the extreme periphery are all that downgrade. Fresh and stunning with immaculate surfaces and wonderfully preserved colors. They simply don’t come this nice very often and it may be another 20 years before a comparable example graces our auction house. We are delighted to offer this card to the market, free of reserve or any other restrictions. Please see the video highlight for more details on this fine-art equivalent investment card. One of over 14,000 cards, lots, and sets up for bid in our 12th Auction of 2019. Click on the link above to view the other PWCC auction lots.
