Description

    1917 Ty Cobb Original News Photograph by Bain, PSA/DNA Type 1.

    Ty Cobb was intimidating. He was also incredibly exciting. Aside from being the best hitter the game has ever seen, he was undeniably its most daring and aggressive base-runner. He once stole three bases on three consecutive pitches. Three times he stole three bases in the same inning and thrice he was the lead man on a triple steal. Here, photographer George Grantham Bain shows us Cobb posing for his lens at Navin Field. A couple of things stand out here. Tyrus looks so confident and sure of himself as he casually leans on his bat and sets his steely stare on the camera. Also, the fabulous 1917 waving flag patch can be clearly seen on his left sleeve. Measures 4x4.75". NRMT condition. Full LOA from PSA/DNA, Type 1.
