Description

The “Georgia Peach” presides on this signed Draper Maynard baseball. The sphere was penned by Cobb (d.1961) on the south panel using a blue ballpoint pen. The autograph is personalized To Earl Charles-From his friend Ty Cobb 1/12/60 and grades in the (“6”) range. The signature is covered by a wafer-thin coating of lacquer that has protected the script from the elements. The sweet spot exhibits the stamped endorsement of Ted Kluszewski, while the trademark is faded, but legible. The ball reveals moderate toning throughout and reveals extensive abrasions on the east panel, which suggests possible signature removal. Despite those flaws, this Cobb autograph is a prime addition to any autograph collection. Full LOA from JSA.
