Photo of Ty Cobb taken by noted baseball photographer Paul Thompson in 1915. Certified as an original Type 1 photograph by PSA/DNA. The close-up image captures a smiling Cobb as he poses in front of the dugout. Thompson's proprietary credit stamp appears on the reverse, as does the handwritten pencil notation "Cobb - Detroit A. L." (presumably in Thompson's hand). Although no year is listed, the uniform style shown here was used by Detroit only in 1915. The photo (6.5 x 8.5 inches) displays a small chip in three of the four corners (upper left, lower left, and lower right), as well as a few light surface wrinkles. In Very Good to Excellent condition overall. Reserve $300. Estimate $1,000+.
