1960 Fleer Baseball Greats Ty Cobb (#42), signed by Cobb in blue ink (grading "8") on the front. This is an exceedingly rare Ty Cobb signed card because he died just one year after it was issued. This is only the second autographed example we have ever offered and one of only three we have seen. The card (approximately 2.25 x 3.25 inches) has been irregularly trimmed along all four borders and has also been affixed to a paper backing. The paper backing displays paper residue from the piece having once been mounted in an album. While technically in Poor condition, the central image of Cobb remains intact and the signature contrasts well against the green background. Auction LOA from James Spence/JSA. Reserve $200. Estimate (open).
