1912 Detroit Tigers Large-Format Team Photo with Cobb
Starting Bid - $300, Sold For - $1,440
Large-format photo capturing nineteen members of the 1912 Detroit Tigers, including manager Hughie Jennings, Ty Cobb, and Sam Craword. All of the players are dressed in formal attire within a formal studio setting. No photographer's credit is visible. This is one of only three examples of this large-format team photo we have ever seen at auction. The fact that one of them (not this example) originated from the family of team member Jack Onslow (who is pictured in the photo) probably indicates that they were only distributed to team members and club executives. That limited distribution would explain their rarity today. The photo (19.25 x 13 inches) displays light foxing and a few tiny abrasions near the top border, none of which detract in the least from its overall Excellent appearance. Matted and framed to total dimensions of 27 x 20 inches. Reserve $300. Estimate (open). SOLD FOR $1,440
