Attractive hand-cut paper "baseball," signed by Ty Cobb. PSA has encapsulated the "baseball" and certified the signature as "Authentic." Cobb's signature has been scripted across the sweet spot of the "baseball" and grades 8/10. This novel piece was created by our consignor's father in 1934 and is part of a much larger autograph collection featured in this auction. Our consignor's father was a big baseball fan and his main hobby during his childhood was collecting autographs. Like most autograph collectors at the time, his main method was to write each player and enclose an index card or hand-drawn card to be signed and returned. As we can see by the size of the collection, most players were more than happy to oblige. All the items from the collection are featured in this sale, including high-grade signatures of many prominent Hall of Famers, including Ruth, Gehrig, Wagner, and Young. It should be noted that the original autograph-request letter for this "baseball," which was sent to Cobb in 1934 and features his handwritten response, is offered as a separate lot in this auction. The paper "baseball" (3.5 inches in diameter) remains in Excellent to Mint condition.
