1955 Ty Cobb Signed Photo

Starting Bid - $300, Sold For - $4,700

Black-and-white portrait picturing Ty Cobb as a member of the Philadelphia Athletics, signed and dated by Cobb in his customary green ink. The inscription reads "In Appreciation - Ty Cobb - 4/14/55." Both the text and signature have been boldly penned and grade "10." This is a very unusual signed photograph of Cobb as he is with the A's in this photo. Cobb was with Detroit from 1905 to 1926, and so most signed Cobb photos naturally feature him with the Tigers. He finished his career with the Athletics in 1927 and 1928. The photo (8 x 10 inches) displays a few light creases, most of which are very unobtrusive and do not significantly detract from the photograph's overall Excellent appearance. LOA from James Spence/JSA. Reserve $300. Estimate $500/$1,000. SOLD FOR $4,700
