Remarkable treasure trove of Brown Brothers Ty Cobb authentic photographs. Exceptional quality, these Type IV Cobb images feature him at his best and in some real stellar poses including batting, fielding, and posing in an outstanding Detroit Tigers sweater. Printed in the 1920's, these unique photographs are interesting sizes (2) 4.5x6.5" and (3) 5x7" and present similarly to a large card or Exhibit.

Fine assemblage of fresh to the market Ty Cobb ephemera. Recently discovered in the Boston area, it includes some of the finer signed photographs we have seen in all our years and some beautiful Type I photographs as well. We believe this came from something of an industrial source and they were likely used for some publishing venture or perhaps even a card set which was never completed (more cards of this era were created in the New England area versus any other). These fine pieces will also seen in future Lelands auctions incuding a wonderful image of the classic Ty Cobb “Sliding” photograph by Charles Conlon.
