With his arms hanging over the railing of the dugout, Ty Cobb is surveying the playing field with the intensity and passion that he was known for. Staring off into the distance, one can only imagine what was on his mind. Circa 1915-16, this 6.5"x8.5" Type I photo is fresh to the market and recently graded PSA Authentic.

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.
