    1909 Detroit Tigers Large Photograph. Ty Cobb, sitting at far right in the center row, looks less like a fiery Dead Ball terror and more like a young lawyer in this spectacular studio photograph of the 1909 American League Champs. The Peach's .377 batting average, nine home runs (all inside the park), 107 runs batted in and seventy-six stolen bases made him the only player in the game's history to win the quadruple crown this season, leaving no doubt as to his supremacy on the diamond. Joining him in dignified dress and pose are fellow Hall of Famers Wahoo Sam Crawford and manager Hughie Jennings, along with top aces George Mullin and Ed Willet and the rest of the cast of characters, all identified along the bottom of this incredible image produced by "C.M. Hayes & Co, Detroit." The piece is mounted on a vintage light cardboard backing, and moderate damage at top and right cannot diminish the tremendous visual appeal. The outermost edges of the piece are hidden by matting, but the visible area of the piece measures an impressive 15.5x22". You will not find a more thrilling image of this early American League Championship squad. Matted and framed to 19.5x27.5".
