    Description

    1960 Ty Cobb Single Signed Baseball. Magnificent high-grade representation of one of the hobby's most essential singles ticks every box on the checklist for an ideal Cobb. The aging Peach fills an entire side panel of a clean white ONL (Giles) sphere with his 9+/10 inscription, reading "To William Lengfelder from Ty Cobb, 3/23/60." Almost half a century later, neither the writing nor the ball itself show anything more than the faintest hint of their advanced age, securing a place near the top of known examples. Smart collectors know that top quality examples of fundamental pieces such as this tend to be the most stable of investments, and we expect the steady incline of that market to continue for quite some time. Auction LOA from James Spence Authentication.
