Description

    1920's Ty Cobb "Stall and Dean" Advertising Display. With the last sighting of this piece at auction remaining the 1999 Barry Halper sale, where a slightly superior example to our offering realized a price of $19,550, the presentation of this terrifically rare countertop display piece is certain to cause a commotion among both Cobb and advertising piece collectors. The Peach's rather controversial nature made him a bit of a gamble for product endorsement, so it is quite rare to see Mr. Cobb working solo on an advertising piece despite his tremendous talents. And in that short supply, no other piece could hold a candle to the leaping image of the Tigers legend, fixed against a background of a baseball and signature model glove, with Cobb's name in bold and heroic text. The cardboard rarity is die-cut to dimensions of approximately 10x15.75" and it presents quite beautifully despite an expected degree of wear most apparent at lower left, where water damage has affected a section of the piece just short of 1x3" in size. Easel back is still in place on verso, and fully operational. Those wishing to add this very special piece to their collections would be well advised to chase this specimen, as the wait for the next one could well exceed the six years between the last sale and this one.

    The hammer price for my Mantle card significantly exceeded my admittedly conservative estimations, and I couldn't be more pleased.
