    Description

    Ty Cobb And Honus Wagner Original Painting. In 1909 the two greatest players of their era Ty Cobb and Honus Wagner met in the World Series. There was a story that was widely circulated over the years and famously recounted in Lawrence Ritter's The Glory of Their Times, that at one point Cobb was on first; he bragged to Wagner that he was going to steal second; Wagner placed an especially rough tag to Cobb's mouth; and the two exchanged choice words. Artist Grant Smith has created a 36" x 24" oil painting that shows the two men on the field during the series. Wagner was by this time 35 years old, Cobb just 22. This time, Wagner could not be stifled as he out hit Cobb, .333 to .231, and stole six bases, establishing the new Series record. The speed demon Cobb only managed two steals.
