Original 1912 head to toe photograph in uniform of the best player in the world, Ty Cobb of the Detroit Tigers. Taken at the ballpark by photographer Paul Thompson, this is one of his few images that capture him in such a setting making it a special piece of photography. Stamped on the back by the important photographer, the photo is clear and presents beautifully with note to a crease on the far left as well as a bit of handling wear being the only flaws. A perfect melding of iconic player and rock-star photographer, this is a rare combination that is sure to excite even the most advanced collector!
