1907 Ty Cobb Rookie Card

Nicknamed The Georgia Peach, Tyrus Raymond Cobb was one of the greatest baseball players of all time. His importance to the game only elevates the status of his W600 Sporting Life Cabinet rookie card. 

One of the most important cards in the W600 set, which ran from 1902-1911, Cobb’s card was released in 1907, using the same pose as his T206 portrait card. This particular example has been graded as Good 2 by the PSA due to a chip in the lower right corner but is otherwise bright, clear, and in overall Vg-Ex+ condition.

Current bid $200,000.

The Tern BYB Bike Rides Big & Folds Small

The BYB bike ($2,500) isn’t just a folding bike—it’s a whole new way to fold a bike. It’s 30% smaller than traditional 20″ folding bikes, and folds small and slim enough to fit conveniently into lockers, closets, or any narrow space.

When folded, the BYB has one of the smallest footprints of any folding bike. That means a much easier time maneuvering it onto crowded trains and buses or when navigating through busy subway stations.

The BYB stands on its rack, and its built-in spinner wheels let you trolley the bike with one hand while the other holds your coffee.

The BYB delivers with a frame engineered for stiffness, larger 20″ wheels, and performance components.

The slim, small BYB fits just about anywhere—behind doors, under desks, in your closet. In fact, the BYB is a perfect fit for standard cabinets so whether you’ve got one, or more, the BYB will occupy minimal space in your place.
