Lot 430: Ty Cobb Slides Into Third Signed Photo
Number Of Bids:
Auction Date:6/28/2013 9:00 PM EST
This is the seminal Ty Cobb photo with the Hall of Famer creating his usual havoc on the basepaths. It was snapped by Charles Conlon for a sports magazine and Cobb signed and dated it 5/27/49. The signature rates a solid 9 out of 10 and there is a small crease in the upper left corner and a faint center crease from being mailed (technical VG condition). Cobb was a whirling dervish on the bases, and he was always rounding them thanks to his unreal .366 lifetime batting average and 892 steals, including a record 54 swipes of home.
