What is the value of a 1911 Ty Cobb card?

to best answer this question you have to narrow it down to an era of cards by ty cobb. typically, if you are buying an original ty cobb card from his playing days (roughly 1906-1928) expect to pay between $500-$2000 for any given card in decent condition. of course the rariety and condition of the card can increase the value 10 fold.
reprints of these vintage cards are common and you should consider buying from a respectable dealer. ty cobb cards on auction sites similar to eBay that are "ungraded" are fake more often than real. unless you can verify the seller as a ligitimate dealer/seller, you should buy a card that is graded by a "third-party" grading company. you can also purchase these cards from respectable auction houses that specialize in sportscards.
