In the first decade of the 20th century those two ball players were the face of professional baseball. And while both possessed a natural talent that stood them head and shoulders above all their peers, you couldn't have found two more divergent personalities. Their paths first crossed in the 1909 World Series. Almost forty years later after their historic meeting, Wagner and Cobb faced off again, this time as managers of opposing boy's baseball teams. The event was the August 6th, 1946 All-American Boys Baseball Game held at Comiskey Park. Sometime during that afternoon in 1946 the two men reunited and signed this Official American Association ball. Honus Wagner signed his name in green pen on the sweet spot and signed it “J Honus Wagner”. Ty Cobb signed his name in black steel-tip fountain pen on the adjacent side panel and added the inscription “8/6/46”. The baseball shows evidence of wear and possible use, but the signatures clear and legible. This item comes with a full LOA from JSA (Y81927).
