My First Ty Cobb Card: 1922 American Caramel E121 Series of 120, Batting Pose, Slabbed an SGC 30!

This is not technically the first Ty Cobb playing-era card I purchased but it is the first I have gotten around to scanning in and writing about. You really can't have enough Ty Cobb cardboard but my wallet would argue otherwise. I was in a good place financially to drop some extra cash, had eBay Bucks available, and found a really cool card that appealed to me. That combo doesn't always coalesce but when it does great centerpieces of a collection can find their way to you.


This beauty hails from the 1922 American Caramel E121 Series of 120 set and is Cobb's Batting Pose in said set. It's a very aesthetically-pleasing SGC 30 and I've always gravitated towards low-grade but visually-strong vintage, especially when it's pre-war we are talking about.

It's my second E121 joining, not surprisingly, Zack Wheat's offering from the set.

My hope would be to end up with double-digit playing-era Cobbs in my Vintage PC and I know that will be a long-term project and cost-prohibitive in most ways. That being said I have two more I purchased before this one and my ex-boss has one on hold for me I intend on picking up in the next few months. So 40% of the way to my goal before the halfway point of this year isn't bad at all.
