Few superlatives adequately express the grandeur of this high-grade 1909 S74 (White) silk Ty Cobb with an incredibly scarce Red Sun advertising back, graded 84 NM 7 by SGC. Upon close examination, it is difficult to conceive that this pre-war antiquity has surpassed the century mark in age. Absent are the folds, fraying, or surface blemishes that usually accompany similar silks. The imposing illustration of the Georgia Peach is well defined and properly centered. The reverse is equally impressive, as the tightly affixed paper backing boldly confirms Louisiana’s Red Sun Cigarettes as the sponsor. This is not only the highest graded S74 Silk (White) to have surfaced in the hobby, but also possibly a unique Hall of Fame subject/advertising back combination ideal for the advanced connoisseur of the finest pre-war material.
