Description



From 1905-1928 Ty Cobb tore up the basepaths, with records of 4,191 hits, 2,245 runs scored and 892 stolen bases. Fittingly he is seen here sliding into a base in a classically conceived rendering by Hartland. Part of the 1990 Hartland series, this dynamic figure had an intended production run of 10,000 pieces. Due to mysterious circumstances, it is reported only 45 of these Cobb figures made it to market, making this piece a very tough acquisition. This statue is housed in its original factory "Green Box" and presents beautifully, although we duly note a small chip along the bill of Cobb's cap. Though the box shows scattered touches of color loss, it remains sturdy and attractive.
