    Description

    Circa 1950 Ty Cobb & Jim Thorpe Signed Baseball. A pair of inaugural class Hall of Famers makes this autographed sphere a singular rarity sure to garner the attention of the advanced autograph collector. While Ty Cobb appears on horsehide with some degree of regularity, the same cannot be said of 1963 Pro Football Hall of Fame inductee Jim Thorpe, whose brief Major League career was overshadowed by his dominance on the early gridiron. These two American sports icons rate 8/10 or better on this baseball of indeterminate brand, joined by a random scattering of ballplayers including Fred Haney and Jack Salveson. But the primary appeal here are Cobb and Thorpe, the latter being the strongest signature we've ever encountered in this medium. Full LOA from PSA/DNA. Auction LOA from James Spence Authentication.
