This Cobb is scarcer than the Ty Cobb/Ty Cobb card.

Last time I checked the Pop Report's data, there are less than 10 of this AB 460 graded.

You've touched on an issue that has confused me (and likely others). Where does the hobby stand on this issue? My belief / opinion has been that the Cobb/Cobb is not part of the T206 set. Is there a definitive answer?
Definitely not a T206. It's a one of one card, basically it's own set.

And quite possibly never distributed in tobacco packs or tins.

Orlando, it seems like we are twin sons of different mothers when it comes to early Cobbs--Right on!

The hobby has been split on this for quite some time. My opinion is that sellers favor calling it a T206 simply because so many people collect T206. I certainly agree that it is not a regular T206 issue, through the latter's mode of distribution.

Happy collecting,

Larry

Or, calling a 1952 TOPPS Mantle his "rookie"....when I collected 1951 Bowman cards a year before I acquired my 1952 TOPPS Mantle in the Fall of 1952.

Furthermore, calling the 1910 COUPON cards "T213-1" also "bugs" me.... when my research has confirmed that these cards were issued circa Spring/Summer of 1910.
This timeline is exactly when the Ty Cobb/Ty Cobb card was also issued.

Good to hear from you, Ted. Hope all is well. I also always get a laugh when I hear somebody saying something about a 1952 Topps Mantle rookie--no such animal exists!

Highest regards,

Larry

Beautiful! I don't think my Izzy Hoffman back brand set will look quite as impressive.
