Any chance to show this off, especially on this side (as opposed to autograph forum, which is my usual haunt).



A close up of the inscription, which reads:

The "so-called" spiking of Baker. Looks like I am trying to evade him, he is in line, he looks like he is trying to spike my foot with his arm. To Rex, from, Ty Cobb

Compelling and very well-written original post, Orlando. Your growing Ty Cobb collection is amazing. So glad for you to have the magnificent T-3; that card of Mr. Tyrus Raymond always does it for me. Bravo. Bravo. ---Brian Powell

Thanks, definitely among my favorite (and most valuable) pieces.

It's funny that the inscription tends to bring out and even reinforce whatever preconceived notions people have of Cobb. If you buy into the hate-filled version, this looks like he's being a dick and shifting blame. If you view him as a sportsman and competitor, the inscription seems playful and tongue-in-cheek. Either way, I love it.

I love the enigma that is Ty Cobb. Here is my favorite Cobb item, a check written to his mother 27 years after she shot and killed his father. Made payable to Mrs. W. H. Cobb.

Wayne, that's a great image and a super cool auto with the subject matter done in Ty's hand. I bet you will be watching the Steel Tubes Cobb postcard in HA when it closes as yours has the same coolness.

Aaron, the check in another great item. I've never been an autograph collector, but if I was, I would collect checks like that. Very nostalgic looking and the auto you know is legit!
