Ty Cobb Rookie Postcard! Graded 20 Fair 1.5 by SGC. By the age of 21, Ty Cobb had already established himself as a dominating force in the American League. His premier status is confirmed on this 1907 Ty Cobb Detroit Seamless Steel Tubes postcard. Only the second such correspondence piece judged by SGC, the youthful Georgian is viewed in full uniform with his trusty bat and glove. Beneath the image is a brief biography and advertisement for the Michigan company. Interestingly, this keepsake is postmarked from Detroit just four days prior to Cobb playing in his first World Series contest. The arrival to a Lyndonville, Vermont address is also stamped just two days later. The typed name of the addressee, postmarkings which protrude the obverse to the right of Cobb and a slight pencil marking on the correspondence portion do not distract from the overall presentation of this 105 year-old relic. This item has a reserve. Estimated value ($10,000-$15,000).
