1957 Ty Cobb Autographed Photo

Starting Bid - $300, Sold For - $2,963

Photographic print of Ty Cobb, inscribed in blue ink (grading "10") "From Ty Cobb - 6/9/57." This is a very unusual signed photograph of Cobb as he is with the A's in this photo. Cobb was with Detroit from 1905 to 1926, and so most signed Cobb photos naturally feature him with the Tigers. He finished his career with the Athletics in 1927 and 1928. The photo (8 x 10 inches) displays a small tear in the upper right corner that has been repaired by clear tape on both the front and reverse. A small piece of tape is also visible along the front bottom and right borders. Tack holes are evident in three of the corners, with the fourth corner displaying a small chip. A few minor edge tears and creases are also evident. A lengthy, blue-ink inscription from a former owner, dated 1973, appears on the reverse. Technically in Good condition overall, but displays beautifully, and is a very rare, interesting, and extremely unusual signed Ty Cobb image. LOA from James Spence/JSA. Reserve $300. Estimate $1,000+. SOLD FOR $2,963
