Default Opportunity of a LIFETIME? T206 Cobb CAROLINA BRIGHTS

Posted By: Jim/jverri01

Recently, I found a T206 Cobb with a Carolina Brights back, for sale on the web. Asking price: $4,295.00. At first, I thought - wow, great opportunity. But, as I think more of it, it almost seems like robbery. Check the card out by following the below link. Card is graded by the "ever-reputable" ASA of Canada (and please tell me it isn't true that PSA bought the grading rights to this company. Why...?). They grade it a 5 EX, I call it Fair/Good, assess it as comparable to a PSA 2, at best. I know how rare the player/back combo is - but, $4,300.?? What is this card really worth? We all know SMR values, and we all know "ranges" for multipliers on rare backs. But, REALLY - what is it worth? Thoughts. Yes - the card did sell. Sale price was $4,100. Is that kind of money well spent on this item? I'm split minded about it. Part of me says, "add it to your collection at any cost". The other part says "Hmm. $4,300 is one month payment on a Lexus (lol)". What do YOU think. C'mon, talk it up.

Here is the ad, and pic of the front:

I have posted a scan of the back at my site:

Alan Hager's ASA came up (and copyrighted?) the 1-10 grading scale used for professionally grading sports cards. That is what PSA paid to use.

From the scan it is hard to see if there are creases. If not I would say it is VG. If you assume a clean crease free VG of this card is worth say $550 to $700...I would value the Cobb with CB back at $2,000+. I would easy give it a 3x multiple.

It is a tough back. Hopefully the back never resided on another card.
