Description

1961 Ty Cobb Single Signed Baseball. The fearsome fury of the Dead Ball era would be laid to rest in July of this year, though his side panel signature, dated "1961" in his hand, still exhibits the strong and steady hand that helped him to earn 4,191 career hits. It appears in 9/10 blue ink on the side panel of an attractively toned "Ted Kluszewski" model baseball, making for a moving testament to the fascinating life of the Hall of Fame's first resident. An inch below, and in a much lighter ink, is a brief personalization in another hand, though the catalog imagery will confirm that this does little to detract. How fitting that the Peach would choose to part ways with the world during a baseball season dominated by the hated home run blast, with which his rival Babe Ruth had "ruined the game of baseball" many decades earlier. LOA from PSA/DNA.
