    Description

    1957 Ty Cobb Single Signed Baseball. The seventy-one year old terror of the Dead Ball Era has never looked better than he does here upon this "Reach Official League" ball signed for a fan in Kansas City, Missouri. Cobb's side panel blue ink autograph rates a magnificent 9+/10, and is underscored by the date of "6/6/57" in his hand. Just beneath, the original owner used the same pen to note the location, "K.C., MO," and reassert the date of the signing, though these factors do nothing to diminish the tremendous visual appeal. While Cobb checks and letters are fairly readily available in the collecting community, single signed baseballs such as this are far more scarce and desirable, particularly such high-grade specimens as the one we present here. Just the slightest bit of surface wear is noted purely for accuracy's sake, and our catalog imagery should illustrate just how insignificant these concerns are. Certainly this ranks very close to the top of the small heap of available examples, and deserves a home in the finest of private collections. LOA from PSA/DNA. LOA from James Spence Authentication.
