Reminds me of Scrapps Tobacco. No reason to call it that anymore, we know now how it was issued. It's not a tobacco issue.

Many still list Doubleday as the inventor of baseball and Columbus as discovering America. These myths must and have be replaced with the facts.

Hopefully the Cobb/Cobb back card will be listed appropriately when we find the answer based on information and data research.

The Ty Cobb/Ty Cobb back cards were issued circa Spring/Summer 1910. Check-out this Thread...... http://www.net54baseball.com/showthread.php?t=122677

Of course it does, but if I gave you the card, you telling me you would say no thanks? Maybe this card only goes for "only" $100k instead of $150k bc the front is banged up, but I can't wait for the day when my ugly cards sell for only $100k, and it will get that bc of the back.

Since most of these cards have come from about 3 owners , including a store owner, it doesn't seem possible they were inserted into a box or tin. Maybe a store owner was given a few to pass out to their friends or best customers and they got them all.

Ryan, I luv ya brah, but first of all, no one is giving us $100k+ cards for free, so let's scrap that analogy. I'm just saying, for that type of money spent, I want a well registered card. I'd rather take the 100k and buy a variety of other things, or even one special piece...but, man, it's gotta be in focus.

Does this mean the whole sheet Was out of focus? I can't remember seeing one similar. There could be a another whole hoard of these somewhere.
