Standard Catalog Update: 1907 Cobb postcard

This is a listing that was prepared after thedeadline for the 2012 Standard Catalog of Baseball Cards. It was intended for a future edition, in the Vintage Major League section of the book.

1907 Detroit Seamless Steel Tubes Co. Ty Cobb Postcard

It is unclear whether this postcard of the budding Tigers star was a proprietary issue of a local steel company or a more generic postcard on which different advertising messages could be imprinted. The 3-1/2” x 5-1/2” black-and-white postcard has on front a full-length pose of Cobb, with a few biographical details. The back is pre-printed with postcard markings including a one-cent “stamp” and pictorial seal of the U.S.
