This Ty Cobb souvenir pin was originally sold, most probably, about 1910 - though an earlier vintage is quite plausible. The piece measures 5/8" in diameter, and aside from its photo-portrait image of the celebrated Peach, we're also treated to a precise simulation of his signature. With no identification in the way of a paper insert or a printing on the pin's perimeter, its sponsor remains a mystery. The luster of the celluloid surface is as original, as is the gentle contour of the pin's surface. We note that a very small dimple appears at the extreme upper perimeter, and the reverse bears a very light glaze of oxidation - all rendering this antique Near Mint.
