Beautiful photograph featuring of one of the most famous Ty Cobb images of all time. This 8"x10" was printed in the 1920's. It is a Type IV but is as good as it gets with out costing 100K. Presents very well with great contrast; you can almost feel the dirt flying towards you. Photograph also features Conlon's handwriting on the back that reads, "Ty Cobb stealing third - Jimmy Austin (Yankees) on third - Bill Dineen (Umpire) covering the play." Great piece. Comes with PSA LOA for Conlon's handwriting on back.
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.
