You can only imagine what is going on in his mind in this 1915 original photograph. Who is he going to steam over on the base paths? How many hits to beat Lajoie for the Crown? What he's going to have for dinner? PSA encapsulated Type I Authentic. 6x8".

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.
