Description



Accounts of Ty Cobb’s hateful demeanor are subject to debate. Said Cobb, himself: “A Chinese sage wrote that exaggeration is to paint a snake and add legs. With me, they attached fangs, claws, file-sharpened spikes, and fire snorting out each nostril.” While there is no denying the famed Georgian’s unyielding competitive desire on the field, he seemed compliant in autograph requests. This one’s a beauty! Matted to 9x12”, Cobb’s black-ink steel tip fountain pen endorsement is accented by his customary paraph and resonates (“8-9”) strength and clarity. The cut signature (2-3/4 x 7/8” visible area) is accompanied by an 8x10” black-and-white photo print of Cobb during the 1920 season. Full photo LOA from JSA.
