    Description

    1920's Ty Cobb Signed Baseball. The Georgia Peach's presence upon an Official International League bearing the facsimile signature of league president J.C. Toole assures playing-days vintage, as Toole held that position between 1921 and 1928, the final eight years of Cobb's career. The Hall of Famer's side panel signature is the only hand-signed example we can find on the ball, but it is possible that others have faded from visibility, so we err on the side of caution by opting not to identify this as a single signed specimen. Cobb's black fountain pen ink rates about 3/10 beneath an ancient coating of shellac. Full LOA from Beckett Authentication Services. Full LOA from PSA/DNA.

    Guide Value or Estimate: $1,500 - up.
