    Description

    1948 Ty Cobb Signed Original Artwork. While the artist who rendered this pencil sketch of Ty Cobb is relatively unknown, John Raitt's likeness of "The Georgia Peach" is an incredible tribute to Cobb. Drawn entirely in pencil/graphite, Cobb wears his Detroit Tigers black cap and is pictured in his younger years. He has signed the 5x9" piece in 10/10 fountain pen with the inscription, "Ty Cobb - Very Good - 2/25/48." There are two fold lines and a couple very minor stains on this overall beautiful original piece of art. Full LOA from PSA/DNA. Auction LOA from James Spence Authentication.
