    1909 Detroit Tigers Team Signed Album with Cobb, Jennings. Intriguing little autograph album begins a little uninspiringly, with signatures from various members of the Department of the Interior, improves a bit with the autograph of "Sam Anderson, Champion middleweight wrestler of the world," then finally hits the jackpot. Flipping from the beginning we first encounter a 10/10 black ballpoint ink signature from Hall of Fame manager Hugh Jennings, dated "Sept. 22, 1909" in his hand, just over two weeks before his club would face off with Honus Wagner's Pittsburgh Pirates in one of the most noteworthy World Series in history. A single page flip reveals his team, eighteen 9/10 pencil signatures applied on the same date, stacked on facing pages for ideal display. Crawford and Cobb are side by side, and joined by the likes of McIntyre, Moriarty, Bush, Stanage, Jones, Willett, Speer and more. Team signed material from the first decade of the twentieth century is all but non-existent, and this high-grade relic captures the most desirable of targets. A true treasure for the Dead Ball Era collector. Full LOA from PSA/DNA. Auction LOA from James Spence Authentication.
