    C. 1930 Bobby Veach Coal Co. Advertising Card SGC Authentic With Cobb and Crawford. Prior to becoming a professional baseball player, Bobby Veach did what his father did - work in a coal mine. Although he was a one of the most talented players of the dead ball era as an outfielder and batsmen, he was over shadowed by three other Tigers in the outfield who won a combined 16 batting titles and are all members of Cooperstown in Harry Heilmann, Sam Crawford, and of course, Ty Cobb. Baseball historian and statistician Bill James called the 1915 outfield trio Veach, Cobb and Crawford as among the greatest outfield in history. They have been referred to as the "$100,000 Outfield." After baseball, Veach went back into Coal and started the "Bobby Veach Coal Co." and this is a rare promotional card featuring the legendary outfield trio. With hand cut edges and the fact this is one of only two known to exist, one could speculate this card may have never been mass produced nor publicly circulated. Encapsulated SGC Authentic and a must-have for the Detroit faithful.
