    1945 Ty Cobb Signed "Esquire's All-America Game" Baseball. Amateur baseball in the 1940's saw its greatest young stars pitted against one another at New York City's Polo Grounds field of battle for an event called the "All-American Boy's Baseball Game," sponsored by Esquire Magazine. While many fans would turn out in hopes of seeing the Big League stars of tomorrow, perhaps even more came to catch a glimpse of the stars of yesteryear, who would serve as honorary managers of the opposing "East" and "West" teams. In 1945 the dugouts were manned by the biggest baseball names of all, Babe Ruth and Ty Cobb. The latter appears in 9/10 blue ink along with Dodgers manager Chuck Dressen on the side panel of the offered "Official American Association" baseball, with the youthful signatures of his Western squad filling the remaining space. One will be hard-pressed to find a superior Cobb signature on a baseball, and the price tag for such a rarity would be a large one indeed. LOA from PSA/DNA.
