    1920's Ty Cobb Endorsed Straw Hat. No stranger to endorsing products, Ty Cobb was willing to lend his name or likeness in exchange for a nice payday. Clothing was one such line, and this straw hat is one of the rarer Cobb items from the early 20th century. Made by "Tracey the Hatter," the inside top of the hat features the company name, "Norristown, PA - Erie, PA - Jamestown, NY" and the name "Ty Cobb." A 7-1/8" size tag hangs from the inside band. The hat has remained in remarkable condition, with just a bit of staining in the center inside, no cracking to the leather interior band, and good condition of the straw.
