Sure the offered T3 Turkey Red example displays a fairly pronounced crease running the horizontal width of the card, but it features legendary Hall of Famer Ty Cobb against a majestic, multi-colored sunset, arguably one of the single greatest images in our entire hobby. VG corners and edges join what appear to be some pen marks at the bottom right for a grade of SGC 20 FAIR 1.5. Excepting the aforementioned crease, however, the image is otherwise unscathed and is unquestionably one of the most brilliant and precisely registered we've ever seen. Cobb's precise countenance exudes so much character, in fact, that the admiring enthusiast can almost hear what is so obviously on his mind: "Go ahead, meat. Throw it by me. Go ahead and try!"
