Insanely Rare Ty Cobb Card Hits Auction Block

Ty Cobb Insanely Rare Card Hits Auction Block ... Could Fetch $200K!!

Exclusive Details

One of the most rare baseball cards EVER is about to hit the auction block ... a T206 Ty Cobb ... and it could be yours if you've got around $200,000 laying around! 

The story behind the card is crazy -- a family in the South found 7 Ty Cobb tobacco cards (originally released between 1909-11) in an old paper bag while going through their great-grandfather's stuff earlier this year. 

It's been dubbed by collectors as "The Lucky 7 Find." FYI, there are only 22 known Cobb T206 cards in existence. 

Now, one of the cards from the paper bag is being offered up through Robert Edward Auctions -- it's been graded by PSA at 1.5 (fair condition) and we're told it's expected to fetch $200,000. 

Several other cards from the haul have previously been sold for big bucks. 

If you can't snatch up the Cobb -- don't worry, there's more cool stuff at the auction (which begins Friday) including: 

-- 1916 Babe Ruth rookie card (estimated at $168,000)

-- 1953 Jackie Robinson game-used bat (estimated at $100,000)

-- 1951 Mickey Mantle rookie card (estimated at $150,000)

-- 1967 Roberto Clemente road jersey (estimated at $75,000)

Good luck, rich baseball fans!
