Description

Presented is an original 1960 Mickey Mantle and Ty Cobb wire photo that has been labeled on the reverse as “Mickey Mantle with Ty Cobb before today’s game.” Taken less than a year before Cobb’s death, this intimate shot of the two legendary centerfielders, dated September 17, 1960, shows the pair sharing a close conversation. The 8x10 picture shows minor creasing around the edges due to normal aging and several minor scuffmarks on the body of the picture. The reverse shows paper and glue remnants around the borders from a previous mounting and some paper pulling spots on the back. Despite these flaws, the piece presents very well and would make a nice centerpiece for any shrine dedicated to these Hall of Fame greats.
