    1914 Ty Cobb Advertising Sign, Part One. The first of two exceedingly rare display pieces featuring the greatest figure of the Dead Ball Era. This one finds Cobb in his trademark stance, slightly hunched forward, his wide-handed grip holding a bat at the ready. Like the sign in the next lot, it features an 8x10" image affixed to a black cardboard backing, with "See Ty Cobb In Action Here, September 9, 1914, Tigers vs. Black Sox" announcement attached at upper left with an ancient, rusting paper clip. A mild degree of general soiling is evident, as is damp staining at the cardboard mount, but the piece displays very nicely despite these issues. Overall dimensions 11x14". An exciting find for the advanced Cobb collector.
