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.
