Offered is a very unusual and quite possibly unique “premium-like” item featuring legendary Hall of Famer Ty Cobb of the Detroit Tigers. Measuring 5-1/2 x 8-1/4 inches and printed a thin glossy stock the item features a sepia-toned image of Cobb in a unique pose that we have never seen on any other card or card-related item. At first glance it has the appearance of a 1910-1912 Plow Boy Tobacco cabinet card. This item has obviously been hand cut with an irregular cut along the top, which leads us to believe that it may have been cut down from some larger display piece. The item displays several unobtrusive creases and has evidence of album removal on the blank reverse. This is a fascinating and quite possibly one-of-a-kind item featuring the “Georgia Peach” in a unique pose dating from circa 1912.
