ABOUT THIS COLLECTIBLE
Ty Cobb. Joe Jackson. Many argue that these two were the greatest hitters to ever play the game of baseball. And the argument has merit. Ty Cobb hit .366 in his career; “Shoeless” Joe Jackson hit .356, first and third on the all -time ranks. The Tigers, Ty Cobb had seven 100-RBI seasons and hit .300+ in every season from 1906 to 1928. In fact the only season he did not hit .300 was his rookie year. Cobb was inducted into the Baseball Hall of Fame in 1936. Jackson was born on July 16, 1888 in Pickens County, SC. He played both for Cleveland and Chicago and was considered the toughest hitter in the game. In fact, his slugging style was copied by a youngster named George Herman “Babe” Ruth. Of course, Joe would have been in the very first class inducted into the Baseball Hall of Fame if not for the “Black Sox” World Series scandal. Amazingly, Joe had 19 hits, eight RBI’s and nine scored runs in that fixed Series. This great offering from our unsigned SGA Signature Series celebrates these two unforgettable Players who single-handedly helped shape baseball as America's pastime. This Sports Gallery Exclusive includes a classic 11x14 or 16x20 photograph of the two taken circa 1913. This beauty is SG Quality Framed with black wood moulding, glass, classic matting and inset plate that includes laser-engraved facsimile signatures of BOTH , along with "The Georgia Peach & Shoeless Joe Jackson," "Circa 1913" and their incredible career batting averages. Just a classic, and unique, piece of Sports Art that any baseball fan would cherish!
