Only two graded and the highest graded S74 (Silk) known!  Jaw-dropping 1909 S74 (White) silk Ty Cobb with an incredibly scarce Red Sun advertising back! Graded 84 NM 7 by SGC, the offered fabric is only the second known of the player/back combination with the other being graded 30 Good 2 by the grading service. Upon close examination, it is difficult to conceive that this pre-war antiquity has surpassed the century mark in age. Absent are the folds, fraying, or surface blemishes that usually accompany similar silks. The imposing illustration of the Georgia Peach is crisply pressed and properly centered. The reverse is equally impressive, as the tightly affixed paper backing boldly confirms Louisiana’s Red Sun Cigarettes as the sponsor. Essential for the advanced connoisseur of the finest pre-war material.
