Description

Among his many superlatives, Ty Cobb was the first player elected to the Hall of Fame (much as Delaware was the union’s first state). As well, he was baseball’s first player-millionaire.  This baseball holds a Ty Cobb autograph and is an Official American League Reach from 1949 although smaller than regulation.

The whole story appears on a single side panel where we find the distinct Ty Cobb signature subdued with age (faded) and sort of legible. With a little coaxing via proper UV lighting on the JSA certification, with his typical underscoring flair in blue steel tip fountain pen (“1-2”), the Hall of Fame legend signed and dated the ball “9/3/49.” Both the date and the salutation, “To” were written in the hand of Cobb. In any event, this is a suitable start to a collection as it is a rendering of Ty Cobb’s autograph on a single-signed medium.

Ty Cobb Signed Mini Baseball Tigers

Authentication: JSA Full Letter

This ball is from one of the largest and most comprehensive collections of autographed baseballs in the world. Altogether they were easily displayable in custom shelf form and alphabetically displayed nonetheless. The choice of medium was visually easy for the encyclopedic collector who put these together. It took several decades to amass these rare autographs of the most prominent entertainers, historical figures, and sports players.  It proved quite difficult to acquire autographs of non-ballplayers on such an odd object (a baseball) but diligence proved otherwise and that it’s possible. So, now with the collection complete and his shelves empty there’s only one thing left to do….bid on this item and start the challenge to see how far you can take it.
