There are 32 SGC graded Miner's Extra, and 77 Total PSA graded (with no break down by Company) of the Cobb card. Compare that with the thousands of available T206's, and the gorgeous larger size full color image and this is a desirable card in any grade. Heavily creased with the name "Edward" written large in pencil in a child's hand on the reverse, also two small plus symbols, also in pencil. You will see lots of Edward and E.K. written on the cards from the PA Miner's Extra Find. The purchaser of the home who found the cards did some digging and found out the Edward did indeed live in the house. He actually went on to become one of PA's first State Trooper Motorcycle Officers in the 20's. It seems that his father was probably the smoker who then gave the cards to his son. Estimate $1500
