Lot 602: Ty Cobb Single Signed Baseball
The cantankerous Cobb laid a splendid signature on this "Official League Ball" with an inscription reading, "To Craig, From Ty Cobb, 12/31/54" in his trademark green ink. The Georgia Peach embellished the signature with his customary flourish, thereby underscoring the importance of his solid 8/10 marker. A prime representation of Cobb's attempt to sweeten his image in the '50s by signing balls for appreciative fans during public appearances. Prized sphere is VG with a smattering of dirt and few tiny surface nicks here and there.
