    Description

    1909 Detroit Tigers Photographic Premium from The Ty Cobb Collection. Marvelous display piece pairing delectable Dead Ball Era graphics with a star-studded cast of characters including Ty Cobb and manager Hughie Jennings, each pictured among the twenty-three team members in individual circular vignettes at the center of the design. Pouncing tigers ring the perimeter, with an American League baseball at top and the captured pennant at bottom. Text announces "Detroit Tigers, Champions 1909." The relic is printed on light card stock, and measures just under 10" in diameter. Originally this was issued with a white perimeter but it was trimmed down to its current size. Adhesive marks and light staining are visible on back. Letter of provenance from family of Cobb's former teammate.
