Ty Cobb Signed and Inscribed 8" x 11" Photo "To Christy Walsh" 10-2-1929 - PSA MINT 9 with LOA
COBB TO WALSH!!!... Much like the relationship he built with Babe Ruth and Lou Gehrig, sports agent Christy Walsh developed a fondness for Ty Cobb that would endure throughout their lives. Walsh not only represented the players with management and sponsorships, but he also became confidant and friend for many that he represented. Offered here is a studio portrait of Ty Cobb from 1925 that the Detroit centerfielder signed and presented to Walsh in 1929 – according to the pencil notations on the reverse. This PSA/DNA encased 8" x 11" portrait is inscribed and signed by the Georgia Peach, "To Christy Walsh "In Sincere Friendship" – Ty Cobb – 10/2/29", and has earned the heralded 9 MINT assessment. Still in amazing condition, this beautiful portrait shows a softer side of Ty Cobb, almost contradicting the lore attached to the hard-nosed competitor on the field. An absolutely striking portrait of arguably the greatest hitter in history with a heartfelt inscription for his beloved agent. PSA/DNA LOA included.
