    Circa 1919 Detroit Tigers Team Signed Baseball with Ty Cobb. Hughie Jennings could have Ee-Yahed until the cows came home and it wouldn't have mattered for the 1919 Detroit Tigers. The team was mired in mediocrity and finished in fourth place - 80-60. But for all their shortcomings, this team-signed OAL (Johnson) somehow survived. The ball features a heavy top coating and has turned a shade of yellow. On the positive side, Ty Cobb's penning registers in at 8/10 while Jennings' is just a step behind. The autographs average 6/10 to 7/10 with a few dipping below. Twenty-four autographs include: Veach, Cobb, Boland, Jennings, Kallio, Bush, Robert Jones, Stanage, Cunningham, Ed Love, Cunningham, Ehmke, Dyer, Heilmann, Yelle, Leonard, Flagstead and more. We determined the vintage to 1919 because that was the only common year Dutch Leonard shared with Yelle. Full LOA from PSA/DNA. Full LOA from James Spence Authentication.
