I'm sure Ty Cobb experts has already seen all these pictures, but I still wanted to make a new thread about it. Hopefully you guys don't get mad me for doing so. Hopefully you enjoy them as well, because I sure do. I'm a huge fan of Ty Cobb by the way, second favorite player after Babe Ruth, which my grandfather saw both of them play, he's so lucky.
Here are some Ty Cobb photos I've found.

Thanks for the welcome William. I've been browsing these forums for a month before joining and I've read a lot of your messages, and you seem to know a lot about Ty Cobb. I wish my grandfather was still alive, he knew a lot about him as well, and I would of told him about these forums. I remember when I was younger he told me a lot of stories about Ty Cobb, he said that he was such joy to watch. He saw him play over 20 times, I'm so jealous. He took a picture of Ty Cobb at a game he went to, but his house burned down and all his baseball pictures got burnt down. It's ashame because they were incredible pictures, and I'm sure you guys would enjoy them a whole lot.
Heaven. I'm in heaven! Where did you guys did up these beauties. I've seen some of them before, but never in such pristine resolution, or such enlarged size. Love seeing them enlarged, and without the usual distortion!!
Kudos to my new-found heroes!! Hope you guys never stop with these treasures. Ty Cobb Photo Gallery will now how a fresh infusion of much needed Red Meat! Umm. Yum yum. So good. Can anyone share the links to the Plunder Room? Pretty please with a cherry on top of the whipped cream??
Why are the left field stands empty? What team is Cobb and the Tigers playing in this photo?

Nice work Ed.

Ty Cobb - 1921
A strange variation on the Detroit "D". Not to mention, the D on his jersey is torn. Looks like he's sporting a black arm-band on his left arm too. ~B (The photo is 1921, and the armband is in tribute to Ray Chapman who was killed the year before. Whenever you see a team with that armband, it's 1921, probably.)
Second picture, an unbelievable assembly of HOF'ers at Toot's place in NYC including Ty. Could you imagine walking in there that day with a blank baseball for autographs!!
(This Hall of Fame shot must have been taken in 1951. Foxx/Ott were elected in 1951, and Arlie Latham died November 29, 1952. Also, since Harry Heilmann/Paul Waner were elected in 1952, and do not appear in this photo, it must be at the 1951 Cooperstown induction ceremonies.)
Ty's Championship Watch
Here's a picture of the watch that Ty Cobb received as a member of the 1908 A.L. Champion Detroit Tigers. This was in the days before rings were given. It came up for auction several years ago, I don't remember what it went for. Quite a lot I'm sure.
Oh, and Bill....if you've got correct info/dates about any of the pic's, I'm sure we'd all love to hear it in the spirit of historical correctness.
William go ahead I know your a big Ty Cobb fan and you've been studying him for a long time. I just hope that you enjoy the pictures that I have posted. I'll be posting some fresh ones soon as well, hopefully you'll them them as well.
