ADDENDUM: This was the photo used for his 1960 Fleer #42 Baseball Card
Yankee stadium was still brand new when this photograph of Ty Cobb was taken back in 1923. Up close and personal, Cobb has his arm back and is ready to throw during his warm-up routine. With his back facing the camera, you can get a good glimpse at the back of his numberless uniform, belt buckle, and even the flap and button on the rear pocket. Fresh to market and freshly graded Authentic Type I by PSA, this photo has a nice overall appearance and measures 8"x10".
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.
