Original 6.5"x8.5" Type I news service photo features Ty Cobb shaking hands with an unidentified player or coach from another team. Stamped with "International Newsreel" on back the photo has some tape residue, possibly from the original caption description of the photo. Slight cut at one bottom corner, tear at top border, but the subjects present very clearly. Came from The Boston Collection.
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.
