Shortly before Christmas 1949, Ty Cobb (d.1961) spread some yule tide cheer by penning this black-and-white photograph. Dated 12/15/49 and measuring 8-1/2 x 11", the blue ballpoint ink endorsement was placed above the left breast of an earlier picture depicting a characteristically intense Cobb in his full Detroit Tigers uniform. The autograph presents a strong ("7") with the dated inscription also being placed in the Georgian's hand. The wafer-thin paper canvas displays mild creasing, a horizontal fold and peripheral notching. However, the precisely inscribed signature still presents nicely and is ideal for framing, matting and prominent display. Full photo LOA from JSA. This item has a reserve. Estimated value ($2400-$3500).
