Ty Cobb is the fourth release in the five-part “T-206 Baseball Series.” Ty Cobb’s T-206 tobacco card image was officially licensed for use on this bar and its production has been strictly limited to a total of 1,909 units across all designs – in honor of the year his card was originally issued.
Tyrus Raymond “Ty” Cobb, a native of rural Narrows, Georgia was the Hall of Fame’s leading vote-getter on its inaugural ballot in 1936, receiving 98 percent of the vote.
Known as “The Georgia Peach,” Cobb played 24 seasons including six as a player/manager, and set 90 records during his professional career – many still stand today, such as his .366 career batting average and 12 batting titles. Often recognized as one of the best hitters of all-time, Cobb’s resume includes an MVP award, a Triple Crown and a spot on the All-Century Team, among many other accomplishments.
Cobb is seen sliding in many of his iconic images, and for good reason, as he was known for his speed. He led the league in stolen bases six times, and ranks fourth all-time in steals. His legend was immortalized on baseball cards during his era, including the T-206 cards produced from 1909-1911. Three of those images used in the original T-206 series have been captured in this exclusive silver bar series by Elemetal.
