Seven Always Has Been Better Than One

How about this for an amazing find?

A family from South Carolina had gone out to California to help clean up the home of a recently deceased great-grandfather and in a crumpled up brown paper bag they found seven T206 Ty Cobb cards, all with Ty Cobb backs no less. They finished the work they were doing in the home and returned to South Carolina where they contacted a local dealer to find out if the cards were worth anything.

After being urged by the dealer to get them authenticated and graded the cards were sent to PSA where all seven of the cards graded from PSA 2.5-4.5 (One is 1.5 Poor, Four are 2.5 Good, one is 3.5 VG and one is 4.5 VG-EX). PSA is calling them “The Lucky 7 Find”.

Previously there were 15 known copies of the T206 Ty Cobb with Ty Cobb back so this find is unbelievable when you consider the rarity. I would keep the best 2.5, run a contest for the 1.5 (Talk about an insane contest) and sell the rest.


  1. I bet the owners of the original 15 are pissed that 7 more are entering the market.
