    Description

    1920 Ty Cobb Single Signed Baseball with Family Provenance. From the hand of the "Georgia Peach" comes this signature, the same hand that helped belt out 4,189 hits at a .366 clip over twenty-four seasons. Ty Cobb led the league in hits eight times, and in batting average twelve times, including every year between 1907 and 1915. Perhaps opposing basemen were scared off by his spikes first slides, but the man had undeniable speed, as attested to by his almost 900 steals. A single signed Cobb ball is simply one of the must haves for any true Hall of Fame collection. Most of the baseballs blessed by Cobb were done during his many years of retirement.

    This period baseball was originally secured by our consignor's father during an exhibition contest November 27, 1920 in either the Los Angeles or Bakersfield area. Following the baseball season, Cobb took the show on the road and barnstormed. The ball mirrors what the American League used that season other than the league President's stamp. Cobb signed a side panel in 4/10 black fountain pen and personalized his signature. PSA/DNA concluded that the dating of the ball, on the south panel, was in an unknown hand. The ball has been graded PSA VG-EX 4 overall. Full Grading LOA from PSA/DNA, VG-EX 4. Letter of provenance from consignor.
