Trio of Circa 1949 Ty Cobb Signed Magazine Photos

Starting Bid - $300, Sold For - $4,444

Each of these three Ty Cobb signed magazine photos was originally obtained by our consignor's husband, a lifelong autograph collector, who, starting in his teens, began the practice of writing players to ask for their autographs. They have remained in the family's sole possession since the day they were received! One photo (5 x 5.5 inches) pictures Cobb posing with Babe Ruth, another (2.5 x 5.5 inches) pictures him standing on deck, and the last one (5 x 4 inches) captures him selecting a bat in front of the dugout. Each photo, which has been trimmed to its current dimensions, has been signed by Cobb in blue ink (grading "9/10") and is in Excellent to Mint condition. Total: 3 signed magazine photos. LOA from James Spence/JSA. Reserve $300. Estimate $1,000+. SOLD FOR $4,444
