Official National League (Giles) baseball has a great history and is believed to be one of the last balls that Ty Cobb ever signed. Signed "To Henry Mehre From His Friend Ty Cobb 6/23/61" in Cobb‚s standard green ink, this ball was signed less than one month before his death.In late June of 1961 Cobb checked in to the hospital and was there until his death; this has to be one of the last balls Cobb ever handled/signed.Mehre cherished this ball until 1963 when he gifted it to his friend and documented the transaction, once again in green ink and dated it "8/26/63."Ultimately, the ball traded hands once more and ended up with our consignor who had Pete Rose sign on another panel.This remarkable ball is very clean and presents a strong EX-MT to NRMT with strong labeling; positioned correctly, this memento presents as single-signed. Ty Cobb signature and writing is 7.5/10.
