Description

For all the nefarious deeds attributed to Tyrus Raymond Cobb, his acts of greatness on the field seemed to transcend them. Cobb was elected to the Hall of Fame on the first ballot, receiving more votes than even the lovable Babe Ruth. Some of the highest praise for Cobb came from some odd sources such as Charles Comiskey, who said when asked who is the greatest player of all-time, “I pick the Detroit man because he is, in my judgment, the most expert man of his profession and is able to respond better than any other player to any demand made on him. I pick him because he plays ball with his whole anatomy--his head, his arms, his hands, his legs, his feet.” Presented is a magnificent 1914 Royal Tailors advertisement displaying Ty Cobb in a three-button overcoat. The relic measures 19x22 and exhibits light signs of age and wear with a touch of adhesive to the right of Cobb’s head, directly above the Royal Tailors logo. Adding to the wonderful display beauty of the piece is an inset image of Cobb sliding into home. The outermost edges exhibit light toning and signs of age without distracting from the overall beauty of the artifact.
