Description

    Circa 1918 Ty Cobb Original Photograph by Paul Thompson, PSA/DNA Type 1. Flawlessly executed batting portrait of the Dead Ball Era's most effective offensive weapon serves as evidence of the mastery of Paul Thompson, whose photography remains essential in the visual documentation of the early game. This particular photograph derives from the archives of Baseball Magazine, the genesis of many of the hobby's most important early images. A sticker relating to the 1996 auction of those archives joins a Paul Thompson stamp and his handwritten "Ty Cobb" on verso. The photo survives the passage of a century remarkably well, with the most significant condition issue confined to an upper left corner bend that remains entirely within the wide white borders. Image area is effectively NRMT. Dimensions 6.5x8.5". LOA from PSA/DNA, Type 1.

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