1907 Detroit Tigers Team Postcard Including Ty Cobb
Starting Bid - $200, Sold For - $830
Graded VG 40 by SGC. Only one graded higher by SGC. Extremely attractive Detroit Tigers team-composite postcard featuring Ty Cobb in his rookie season. 1907 was a great year for the Tigers franchise as it marked the first of three consecutive American League pennants (though the team lost the World Series each year) as well as the start of Ty Cobb's Hall of Fame career with the club. The postcard is bright and crisp with outstanding photo clarity and contrast. The image features the very young Cobb in the center. Also included in the photo are fellow Hall of Famers Hughie Jennings and Sam Crawford. Downgraded due to a small crease in the upper right corner, otherwise entirely clean, front and back, with no writing or postmark. This is a very attractive example of this early Detroit Tigers postcard dating from Ty Cobb's rookie season. Reserve $200. Estimate $400+. SOLD FOR $830
