Default Opinions on the T206 Green Cobb

Happy New Year's early everyone!

this is a spin off from what I stated in the favorites pick up thread...

my observations/predictions on the green Cobb...

will be considered part of the "BIG FIVE"

Wagner, Doyle, Plank, Magie, Green Cobb


pricing is still catching up.....but it will be considered the 5th "big" card of the set....if it isn't already


similar psa 1 Magie maybe 8 k ........so , the Cobb still has much room to grow, then will stay close behind in pricing with Magie....



thoughts????

In keeping with the spirit of this thread, I, for one, feed my green Cobb every day and he seems to be growing nicely. I must confess though that I discard the table “scraps” that he leaves behind.

Default Not quite...

Valuable/desirable card, but missing the rarity component to hang with the big 4 IMO...

Johnny, isn’t a t206 set considered complete without Wagner, Doyle, Plank, Magie? If so, I think that’s the fact (based on rarity) that distinguishes the green Cobb from the Big Four. So, in my opinion, it will not become the 5th, which assumes “big” = price, not rarity. I think the Demmitt and O’Hara PB would get the nod over the green Cobb if we were adding “big ones” of t206.

Ryan, I think Green Cobb in grades 1-5 outpace Demmitt & O’Hara. (Maybe even the higher grades too).

Just an interesting observation.

before you discard those "scraps" remember to check with me!

The Cobb green lacks the rare aspect of O'Hara and Demmitt, but it is still one of the best cards of one of the greatest players, and is collected by many across the hobby. Demmitt and O'Hara are only collected by advanced T206 collectors.

So the Cobb green may end up being just as scarce in terms of demand as the O'Hara and Demmitt.
