T205 Ty Cobb Tobacco Reprint Baseball Card with Gold Borders

T205 Ty Cobb Tobacco Reprint Baseball Card

Ty Cobb, center fielder of the Detroit Tigers of the American League, was born December 18th, 1886, at Royston, Ga. Cobb's professional career began in 1904, when he playedfor a short time with the Augusta Club of the South Atlantic League. He was purchased by Detroit in 1905. Since then he has been a regular member of the team, and is noted as amarvel for his speed and batting.

The first Hall of Fame vote was taken in 1936 and Tyrus Cobb was the top vote-getter, named on 222 of the 226 ballots cast. "The Georgia Peach" out-polled every other player which wasn't a surprise, but was is that four voters ignored him. Cobb was disliked through out the league for his aggressive style of play and shunned by other players, and this might have accounted for the four votes.

Cobb won ten batting titles and finished his career with 4,191 hits and 892 stolen bases and a .366 lifetime batting average which is still tops in the major leagues.
