Default Ty Cobb the Boxer

Picked up this Ty Cobb T225 Series 102 card recently. Wondering if anyone knows of any of his other cards in more sets as this is the only one I know of. I believe this fighter is Sammy Kolb but I'd be interested to find out if he has other cards using the Cobb name.

Pretty confident this is his only card at all. He is in no other mainstream sets for sure. The T225 White Borders are pretty tough

Thanks - that was generally my sense as I'd not seen any others.

You're right in assuming that "Ty Cobb" was in fact Philly featherweight Sammy Kolb, who compiled a record of 55-35-19 from 1909 to 1922. Here he's highlighted on an advertising card for world white heavyweight champion Luther McCarty's first exhibition tour after he won the title in 1913. Three months later, in his first title defense against Arthur Pelkey in Calgary, Canada, the 21-year-old McCarty was killed in the ring.
