Ty Cobb Single Signed Baseball c.1920s: Scarce Playing Career Example (PSA/DNA 6.5)
The Georgia Peach didn’t just make an impact entering the American League in 1905: he blew the doors off the barn. Cobb instilled fear in pitchers from his first season of 1905 through his final campaign in 1928, compiling statistics that are largely unmatched to date. Cobb's post-career life included numerous public appearances in a number of facets which facilitated the opportunity for fans to obtain signatures of the Hall of Fame player. He was generally a willing signer and would often personalize baseballs to the particular recipient in his trademark green ink. Conversely, for reasons unknown, or more likely due to Cobb's rage-filled style of play, the existence of playing career era signed baseballs is notably scant.
Offered is a Ban Johnson AL baseball which has been signed by Cobb in blue fountain pen on a side panel. Signature remains bright and consistent throughout rating 8/9 out of 10. The ball remains in fine original condition with no visible use, but rather some light general surface soiling/toning. Includes full LOAs from JSA and PSA/DNA (Ball: 5, Autograph: 8, Overall: 6.5): Ball: EX, Signature: NM-MT
