Poised at the top of the dugout like a king, Ty Cobb definitely looks like the manager of the Tigers in this remarkable Type I. 1924 was Cobbs best year as manager/player of the Tigers finishing with a 86-68 record. Crisp and clear, this original 1924 News Service photo is simply beautiful. Obviously posing for the photographer, Cobb is resting on his knee, with his glove and a rare smile. 7x9" and freshly PSA encapsulated Authentic Type I.

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.
