Default Super Rare Ty Cobb Tango Egg, the Myth

I recently had a very nice find of t213-II Coupon Tobacco cards.
The seller, who was from Metaire, LA., also had some Cracker Jacks a General Baking and This Ty Cobb with a Tango Egg back.

The card had previously been rumored to exist, but apparently had never been seen, at least not by the masses.

I have already sold the card, and I believe it is now in a SGC 10 Holder.
Condition wise, truly a card only a mother could love, but what a rarity!!

Here it is: Ty Cobb Tango Egg Back!

Default PSA wouldn't slab it and.....

Hey David
That is a great card but call me Mr. Skeptical. Not sure the fact that Joe O said they wouldn't slab it has any bearing on my thoughts but I just don't know about it. If it's real it's a really neat card. Thanks for posting and best regards

It is, if nothing else, interesting......that's odd that PSA wouldn't slab it too.........I mean, they've slabbed enough Tango's--primarily Jennings and Bescher to have a good feel for it all........

Nice card, I wonder why it cant be slabbed by PSA?? They are failing bigtime nowadays IMO

I once owned a Jennings that was only slight better condition than that Cobb. The Jennings was dirty with creases and rounded corners.

Not all Tangos are from that "Find" back in 1992 Im sure they were considered very rare before 1992, maybe even rarer than the related D303 Mothers cards.

I wish I still had scans of the Jennings I once owned, it was bought in eBay back about 1999-2000 from a lady in New Orleans who also have a few D303 Mothers cards, T216, T213-2, T214 cards too.

Did this card come from the big Red Cross Tobacco find?

Leon,

Are you saying the card might be rebacked? Seems pretty evenly beat. I really have no knowledge of the issue just wondering.

Same type of stamp....same "5" exact and letter "N" In fact if you overlay them they match exact, even the spacing between the "No" and the three digit code is exact. So unless someone took an auth Tango back with stamp (of which only one I know of has been seen) and then re-backed the Cobb and then beat it up to make age? But this also goes back to the find where did they come from?



I dont think there's anything wrong with that card above...besides a few 100 bike tires and spokes...over it's years. IMO



Better scans..

PSA may have refused to slab the card because it may have been too fragile. I had some very fragile E121's where PSA's slabbing machine damaged while trying to slab. PSA called me immediately when it happened to the first one and explained something about their vacuum sealing process damaged the card. (The card was already in very poor shape to begin with.) Anyway, PSA offered reparations, but refused to slab the rest of the cards. I sent these cards to SGC, who slabbed them without any problems. Might've been the same issue here.

Default I am probably skeptical for nothing....

I am probably skeptical for nothing. It's just the rarity combined with the shape it's in combined with the different color printing than I have seen on others made me skeptical. Probably no worries at all. I think it is healthy to be a bit skeptical in our hobby though. For those that aren't ever skeptical, bless you.
