Beautiful 1917 photograph of Detroit Tigers Hall of Famer Ty Cobb as he does his best Babe Ruth impression and swings for the fences. Cobb is holding his follow-through for photographers and is flashing the grit and determined look on his face that made him the best player of his era! A clearly vintage example, we feel this is well within the five years we give for a "Vintage 1" and it remains here in nice shape overall with note to a chip off the lower left corner. Developed around 1920-22 (Brown brothers stamp added alter when the image was filed) off a duplicate negative, the photo retains exceptional quality and is among the best values of any Cobb photograph we have ever offered!
