The 1911 Mecca Double Folders T201 #10 featuring Sam Crawford and Ty Cobb is a historic baseball card that captures the essence of the early 20th-century game. Sam Crawford, known as "Wahoo Sam," and Ty Cobb, the legendary "Georgia Peach," were both standout players of the Dead Ball Era, and this card showcases them in a distinctive dual-image format. The T201 series is renowned for its unique design, with a hinge in the middle that allows for two different player images. When viewed in an open position, the T201 card reveals one player, either Cobb or Crawford.. When the card is folded, a different player is revealed! Cobb, widely regarded as one of the greatest hitters of all time, shares this card with Crawford, a power-hitting outfielder. The 1911 Mecca Double Folders card not only provides a glimpse into the playing style of these two Hall of Famers but also reflects the nostalgia and charm of early baseball collectibles, making it a prized possession for enthusiasts of both vintage cards and the history of the game.
