Default T206 Ty Cobb...Broad Leaf 460???? **Auction Ended by Seller**

Anyone else think this is a composite card?

If it was genuine it would be only the second known Cobb/ Broadleaf 460

I can't be sure from the scans, but the red flags are overwhelming.
- A virtually impossible combination.
- Comes from his uncle's collection, which by itself is suspicious. But what are the chances that the one card from his uncle that he is selling is a Cobb/ BL 460?
- While he mentions that he's selling Uncle Bob's collection, this is the only card that he's selling.
- The BS excuse about not getting it graded. Even in bad condition it's a $20K plus card, but he'll start the bidding at $50.
- And of course, he won't accept returns.

I've read worse excuses for not getting cards put into an SGC or PSA holder on the BST.

Front and back by themselves look real, but yes, I can see this being a Frankenstein card with the 2 parts glued together.

I agree with Sean -- if it looks like a duck and quacks like a duck.... I mean man, they have put that card through every possible damage, especially the back - creasing, staining, rounded corners and a pen-mark "4". The red background on the front bothers me for some reason. As real as the back looks to me, under the totality of these circumstances, I just cant believe that this is an authentic Red Cobb BL 460 (Kinda like there was no way I would ever bid on a Candiman auction under those circumstances.... sorry, I couldn't help myself).

also feedback as a seller over a year ago.....

sounds like someone's account was hacked..

seller will take the funds...close the bank....then buyer will get money back from ebay 60 days later...post office wins..

Plus the other option is there will be the game of 'i sent it and it say received on tracking' and buyer saying never got....and insurance claim for seller/buyer..

If it is a reback it's very well done. no overhang anywhere and the one edge he shows us looks good. Of course why is he showing an edge view? That alone makes me suspicious. Someone is thinking "man I did a good job on this, I'll even show an edge view..."
