Original c. 1910 of young Ty Cobb, holding his bat and standing in the batters box with his classic stance and holding his bat to his side while a play is made on the bases (possibly a stolen base). While Cobb is not facing the camera, it is clearly the Georgia Peach based on the uniform and profile. The photo was from a vintage scrapbook and we were told this is from the "Cobb Estate" of photographs that have come to market recently through another auction house. There is some wear and the image is small, but it looks great!
