Red Cobb survey of all its 30 backs....post your inputs ?

April 2 2009 at 5:07 PM
  (Login tedzan)

There is no argument that the Red portrait Cobb was American Lithographic's "signature picture" for its white
bordered T-card sets. This picture of Cobb appears on at least 30 white bordered cards with various Tobacco
advertising backs. But, there appears to be some argument regarding the relative scarcity of its 11 toughest
T206 backs. So, let's run a survey and see what results.

I will start this survey with 2 of my 4 red Cobb cards.

0....BROAD LEAF 460
0....DRUM
0....HINDU (red)
0....LENOX (black)
0....UZIT
1....SOVEREIGN 460
1....PIEDMONT 460 Factory 42
0....CAROLINA BRIGHTS
0....AMERICAN BEAUTY 350
0....CYCLE 460
0....EPDG



OK, guys and gals.....how about running up the numbers.....show and/or tell us about your red Cobb(s) ?

Remember, this survey is not limited to just these 11 backs....any Red Cobb is welcome to this study.


Thanks for your time an effort responding to this survey.

I would say that a Cobb Hindu Red or Black is more difficult to find than a Lenox or Uzit. Just my thoughts after looking for a Cobb hindu for a few years

Red Cobb survey of its 10 scarcest backs..need your inputs ?

April 2 2009, 9:03 PM

1st....As I've already stated, the BROAD LEAF 460 is not on the list because there is no debate that
it is absolutely the scarcest. Anyhow, I doubt that more than 2 examples would be reported here.

2nd....This survey was mainly prompted by a discussion regarding the relative scarcity of this Cobb
with DRUM, LENOX, Red HINDU and UZIT backs. I added the CAROLINA BRIGHTS, PIEDMONT 460/42
and the SOVEREIGN 460 to this survey because I feel that these 3 are also quite scarce. But, since
some have requested here, I now have added AMERICAN BEAUTY 350, CYCLE 460 and EPDG backs
to this survey.

OK, get this straight....the order that the backs are listed here has no relation to their scarcity......
that is what we are trying to determine from this survey.

Updated survey......

0....DRUM
0....HINDU (red)
2....LENOX (black)
0....UZIT
2....SOVEREIGN 460
6....PIEDMONT 460 Factory 42
3....CAROLINA BRIGHTS
2....AMERICAN BEAUTY 350
1....CYCLE 460
1....EPDG


Good start, guys; but, we need a lot more inputs to get an accurate sampling. Where are all the Red
Cobb's that I know are out there in Net54-land ?

Nobody asked but my green portrait is an Old Mill Factory 25. Also not rare.

But they are two of my favorites and, although I've sold almost all of my T206s, I can't seem to part with these.

1st....the 10 red Cobb's reported (so far) with PIEDMONT 460 Fac. 42 do not surprise me in the least.
If we were to get a lot more participation in this survey (at least 200 inputs), we would get a more
realistic perspective. And, the 10 red Cobb's with P460/42 backs would not seem out of line.

2nd....in a P460/42 survey that I ran last November, the six super-prints (this red Cobb is one) were
more often reported with P460/42 backs than other 350/460 subjects. Furthermore, I have a theory
why this Cobb is found with many P460/42 backs. The PIEDMONT brand was very popular in the South-
east, so American Litho. printed up many red Cobb's at the tail end of the PIEDMONT run and shipped
them to Durham, NC (Factory 42) to be inserted into the L&M PIEDMONT packs.

3rd....Finally, In recent years, P460/42 cards have been sought after much more so than in the past.
The 1st T206 set that I put together back in the 1980's had 4 - P460/42 cards in it....that I was not
even aware of. Simply, because this back was seldom seen (most collectors were unaware of it).

When Bill Heitman published The Monster in 1980, Red HINDU backed T206's were virtually unknown.

The Red Cobb is not often seen with a Sweet Caporal 350 Factory 25 (VA) back.

And, it is less seen with a Sweet Caporal 460 Factory 25 back.

I'm not sure why this is so....as the Factory 30 (NY) versions of both these Sweet Caps are very plentiful.

Hi Ted,

Last nite a T213-1 Red Cobb ended on ebay. I know you believe the Type 1 Coupons should be part of T206, so I thought you might like to be aware of it. (I tried a snipe of $1200, but obviously I got blown out of the water!) Here's the link:

BRUCE BABCOCK.....Red Cobb population

April 16 2009, 8:58 PM 

I don't know how we can establish a grand total population of how many Red Cobb cards exist.
Grading Co. POP reports are at best misleading (due to constant churning of re-grading). And,
there are still many old dinosaurs like me who have ungraded Cobb's (currently, I have 4 such
Red Cobb's).

Then there are (by my count) 30 different Red Cobb's....24 T206's, Ty Cobb back, 1910 Coupon,
T213-2, T213-3, T214 and T215....which complicates any true count of this Subject.

Here is what we do know......in two independent T206 surveys totalling over 40,000 cards, the
Red Cobb out-numbers all other T206 Subjects (except the 5 other Super-Prints) by a factor of
approx. 2 to 1. The closest Subjects were guys like Johnson (portrait) and Joss (pitching). From
these surveys, Johnson's sample was 110 cards and Joss' sample was 124 cards....while the Red
Cobb's sample was 196.

"I noticed your list is seeking to track the Red Hindus but I don't see an entry for a regular Hindu...."

Are you alluding to the Brown HINDU back ?

I don't think you are, because the Brown HINDU back exists only in the 150/350 Series of T206's.
The Red Cobb was printed in the 350/460 Series; and therefore, can never be found with a Brown
Hindu back.

Here's my UZIT red Cobb.....it's too bad that it's my gimmicked-up fake. Otherwise, if real, it would
be a really unique error that would command big $$$$$$.
Actually, I'm surprised that such printing mistakes haven't been found, since American Lithographic
was printing these Red Cobb's and the T80 Military men cards, simultaneously, in early 1911.

In any event, still looking for a Red Cobb with a UZIT back to confirm its 24 different T206 backs.

BRUCE BABCOCK

Thanks for bringing up this subject again. I have given this some thought and I think we can extrapolate and arrive at
an educated guess to answer your original question. Let's do a little math here......

Let's assume that this random survey of 40,000 T206 cards is valid. It yielded 196 red Cobb's......and, an over all ave-
rage (OAA) of 78 each of the other 509 T206's.

40,000/509 T206 Subjects = OAA of 78 T206's.....509 = 524 - (the Big 6, 6-Super Prints, Dahlen, Elberfeld, Lundgren)

40,000/196 = a red Cobb per every 200 cards


Red Cobb/OAA = 2.5 red Cobb's per any other 509 Subjects

Simply stated, the Red Cobb lies somewhere between a Double Print and a Triple Print.


Furthermore, Scot Reader, in his book "Inside T206", has a chapter on the "survivability" of the T206 cards. If I recall
correctly, he estimates approx. 1 to 2 Million cards. I think Scot's estimate is a good one.

So, if we divide 1 Million T206's by 200, it yields 5,000 red Cobb's. This number might sound high; and, I'm sure I'll be
challenged on this population #.....but, that's my best guess.


Best regards,

TED Z

Re: Red Cobb survey of all its backs....need your inputs ?

April 23 2009, 7:57 AM 

Ted:

Some observations from looking at the data, all obvious, but interesting nonetheless.

1)The Piedmont 460/42 and Old Mill seem to be candidates for "easier" status.

2)The Sweet Cap 460/42's also seem pretty tough. In fact, with one exception Sweet Cap backs taken individually seem scarce in relation to many other backs.

3) There does not seem to be nearly as many of each of the "easy" backs as I would have thought. I suspect under-reporting is the cause of this.

4) When looked at as 4 groups, the distribution flattens out some. I may be off by a couple but get the following out of 149 backs reported:

All Piedmont: 49 or 32.9%
All Sweet Cap: 30 or 20.1%
All OM/Sov/PB: 31 or 20.8%
All Other backs: 39 0r 26.2%

Piedmont has the most as expected, but the other three groupings as a whole are pretty close. Based upon overall ppn. of all Piedmonts to all backs, there should be a lot more Piedmonts out there yet to be reported.

There is no doubt about it, the Piedmont 350 Fac 25 and Sweet Cap 350 Fac 30 red Cobb's have been under-reported.
I think this may be due to most collectors on Net54 go for the tougher backs. A more random sampling would most like-
ly result in many more of these two easier backs.

Frank

The red Cobb was printed and issued in the 2nd (350) series of T206 set in 1910. And, then was further printed and is-
sued in the 460 Series in late 1910 and 1911. Perhaps, you are thinking of the Green Cobb which was issued in the 1st
(150) series in 1909.

Re: Red Cobb survey of all its backs....need your inputs ?

Hey Frank A....

As I understand it, the white border tobacco cards were issued in a progression of series and brands. The series are somewhat obvious, the brand aspect isn't quite so obvious. Series 150 first, then 350, and last was 460.

Green portrait cards and bat on shoulder (gray cap) Cobb cards were in series 150, and carried over into 350. Red portrait cards and bat off shoulder (black cap) Cobb cards first appear in series 350, and they continue into series 460.

Ted Z can expand on this, no doubt. Scot Reader's great publication would help, too.

Yes, there's guys like me that do not get my cards Graded.....I have 4 red Cobb's.
And, I know of about 40-50 T206 collections that are un-graded with Cobb's.

I am sure there are many more such T206 collections; but, we have to go a long,

Seems likely that several of them would have been resubmitted... As difficult as it will be for us folks here to accept, there are lots of collectors who either know not, or care not, about this board, the cards those folks have would remain unconsidered in this analysis.

Red Cobb population

April 24 2009, 11:54 AM 

FRANK W and JIM VB

I would estimate the population of T206 collectors (and Ty Cobb collectors) are in the 1000's.....worldwide.
Many of them are old "dinosaurs" (like me) that have collected these T-cards for 4 (or more) decades. And,
have no interest in having them Graded.

I have very few graded cards in my various sets (1887-1987). However, I do get Sports cards graded for the
purposes of selling them. All that said, I'll apply my old axiom here...."we live in a 1/3 rd world"....therefore, if
1400 red Cobb's are Graded. Then, I speculate that there are another 2800 that are ungraded.

And, I don't think the converse (1400 graded while only 700 are ungraded) is true.

Also, no one has come up with how many Red Cobb's are Graded by Beckett, GAI, etc., etc. ?

Anyhow, just offering my 2 Drachma's to this discussion.

Re: Red Cobb survey of all its backs....need your inputs ?

Beckett has graded 64 red Cobbs. I don't think GAI has a pop report that you can access -- at least I can't find one. I suspect the number would be rather small.

Sorry for my slow response to this thread. I have two T206 red Cobbs: SC 350 Factory 30 2nd Dist. NY, and Ty Cobb brand back.
