Lot #8: Ty Cobb Single Signed Baseball (JSA & PSA/DNA MINT 9 Auto/ 8 Overall Ball)

Description

Until Babe Ruth, no player dominated the game like Ty Cobb. For 12 consecutive years, Cobb led the American League in batting and cranked out an astounding 4,186 hits, a total that took almost seven decades for another player to beat. Cobb was one of the few players who was able to successfully navigate the transition from the dead ball era to the modern era and his lifetime average of .366 is still the highest in baseball history. When the National Baseball Hall of Fame was founded in 1936, Ty Cobb garnered 98.23% of the votes, which is still the fifth highest recorded total. Although he often was a polarizing figure, Cobb remains one of the greatest men to ever swing a baseball bat in the Major Leagues and as such, a single-signed Cobb ball is one of the cornerstones of any baseball collection.

This magnificent example is one of the finest single-signed Ty Cobb baseballs. His bold black steel-tipped fountain pen signature on the side panel of this Official Big Leaguer model ball simply leaps off the proverbial page. The ball itself displays only an ever-so-slight toning giving the ball a light cream-color. The stampings are still bold and crisp and the red laces add a perfect compliment to the overall look and appeal of this ball. This single-signed baseball comes with a LOA from PSA/DNA (AG06031), who have graded Cobb’s signature a MINT 9 and overall grade for the ball nr. Mt-mint 8. There is an additional LOA from JSA (X03495) for the signature. A truly wonderful Ty Cobb signature!
