Description

Circa 1961 Ty Cobb Signed Photograph. Fine portrait of the Peach at the dugout railing can be dated to either 1915 or 1916 based upon the style of "D" applied over his heart. It's an image we haven't encountered before, and certainly not in autographed format as we do here. The simple inscription to his close friend reads simply, "To Rex from Ty Cobb." The ink is a bit spotty but still quite bold, and presents very nicely. The photo is somewhat wrinkled at right center, but the visual effect of this flaw is minimal, as our catalog imagery should illustrate. Size is 4.5x7". Auction LOA from James Spence Authentication.


The Rex Teeslink Archive of Ty Cobb Memorabilia
When the great Tyrus R. Cobb passed away at Emory University Hospital after a long cancer battle at the age of seventy-four, Rex Teeslink and Cobb's nurse were the only two people at Cobb's bedside. Teeslink had developed a close friendship with the dying legend over the course of approximately two years that he served as Cobb's caretaker while attending medical school, and the Hall of Famer's affection for the young man is clear in the letters he sent and the artifacts he willed to him. Now approximately the same age that Cobb had been during their time together, Teeslink has released the following artifacts to the collecting public, some of the most unique and intriguing material from the legendary Georgia Peach ever to make their debut at public auction. Each lot will be accompanied by a signed letter of provenance from Teeslink.
