Default Ty Cobb Printing Plate

Posted By: paulstratton

Any information on this Cobb printing plate? It resembles the pose on many of the Exhibit cards. I'm thinking a more modern piece...

If the image surface is embossed (run your finger across) it's old. If it's smooth, it's a lithograph and more recent. A collector can find printing plates for a variety of products, including magazines, books, advertising, etc, though a new or old example with Ty Cobb's image is rare. It's possible it's a printing plate used to in the making of a publication, like a newspaper, magazine or book. The most common printing plates found are from newspapers.

I believe that image was used on one of his Exhibit cards. I've got no idea what types of printing plates the Exhibit company nused.

The image is the same used on the 1921 and 1927 Exhibits, but the plate has his signature floating to the left side (the right side on the plate), so it is not the plate used for those Exhibits.

However, Cobb appears in a number of other Exhibit sets that I have not seen an image for -- e.g., the 1922 Eastern Exhibits, the 1925, 26 and 27 Exhibits, the 1926-29 Postcard Back Exhibits, and 1980 HOF Exhibits. The 1980 set sppears to feature signatures similar to the Cobb plate.
