Default Ty Cobb card expert, opinion needed

I don't know how to link to an ebay item but could someone look at the listing in pre-war baseball cards called Ty Cobb RPPC Post Card !! and tell me what exactly this is and what year it's from? Also, if you were to have it graded, how would the grader know it's Cobb if his name is not anywhere on the card. Any info would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks in advance!

Postcard does not picture Ty Cobb.

I'd sooner buy that card as a Cobb if it had an X across the face of the player.

Jeff is probably saying it's not Cobb because he hasn't had the opportunity to sign onto eBay and buy it yet (kidding kidding)

Thanks guys, I didn't think it was either but I thought maybe it was just the angle and I wasn't seeing his face right. Did the Tigers ever wear a uniform that looked like that with pinstripes?
Thanks again!

That's what the Tiger's jerseys looked like when you "took all the spots out."
