Default New T206 Cobb back discovery

I guess you could call this "Son of Lucky 7 Find". Just one card this time, but the population of T206 Cobb backs has again grown:

Will be interesting to see where the market is now.
Some other tobacco cards were in this find, too.

It's always fun to realize there are still big cards found everyday.

Yeah, I saw the Cobb/Cobb posted by Joe Orlando on PSA's twitter feed a few days ago. Surprised it took this long to get cross-posted here.

Cool find...but the registration on that Cobb, makes it rather tough to look at.

Yes, I'm trolling Ebay right now solely for "pricing errors"

Enfuego sold me a fake card
Wouldn't answer his phone
Wouldn't email me
Wouldn't respond to paypal
But paypal refunded me so he's allowed back on the boards

True, the front registration is brutal (scary), but it's is the back that matters.....

I'm sure it has been discuss multiple times, but why is the Cobb/Cobb back part of the T206 Set or labeled as a T206 ?

Doesn't it deserve to be in a "1 card" set, maybe labeled "Ty Cobb Tobacco Tin Insert ".

Probably to get more $ out of them. I have never had one in hand but from every account I have read the surface/finish of the card and the card stock used is different than what was used on T206 cards.
