Collection of three glass plate copy negatives, each picturing Ty Cobb. The largest of the three (5x7") pictures Cobb posing with a bat, while the other two (5x4") capture, respectively, Cobb at the plate during batting practice and Cobb receiving gifts from several unidentified gentlemen prior to a game. The two smaller negatives each display vintage black tape along portions of the border areas (not in repair of any visual cracks); otherwise all are in Excellent condition overall. Each is housed in a paper sleeve bearing a date of either 1924 or 1925. Please note: the positive images seen on our website are for illustrative purposes only and do not accompany the negatives; only the negatives are offered in this lot.
