T206 Ty Cobb Upside-Down Miscut back sold for $3615

Written by T206museum (August, 2005)

MastroNet Inc. sold a T206 Ty Cobb Red Background with a 4-in-1 miscut upside-down back for $3615 in their August 2005 auction.

The following is the auction description:
Graded 50 VG/EX 4 by SGC. Printing abnormalities are very popular among advanced T206 collectors. The offered card, which once rested in the collection of T206 guru Bill Heitman, would certainly have to be considered the pinnacle for these hobbyists. Upon first glance, this card appears to be a routine T206 Red Background card of the great Ty Cobb. But, upon the turning the card over, the collector views the source of the item's uniqueness the Sweet Caporal advertisement is completely upside-down! In addition, the advertisement is off-centered in such a way that parts of four separate Sweet Caporal advertisements are visible. The offered card is not printer's scrap - it is a full production card. It was not hand-cut, and was surely issued inside a cigarette pack. The item possesses extraordinary colors, and Cobb's image is perfectly focused; the all-important reverse is extremely bright and exhibits no surface imperfections. Strong Very Good to Excellent condition and possibly one-of-a-kind!
