Ty Cobb may have been the best all-around baseball player that ever lived. But one thing is for sure, Cobb had a burning desire to win. The first player to amass over 4,000 hits, Ty Cobb is the epitome of hitting, and bat collectors seek examples of his lumber.

Dating (1921-28): Per the MEARS Official center brand guide, the manufacturing is consistent with the 1921-1928 era. During that time, Cobb played for the Detroit Tigers from 1921-26, before finishing up as a player manager from 1927-1928 with the Philadelphia Athletics.

Length 34”: Measuring 34” in length, the bat measures at a length acceptable for Ty Cobb to have used during the era.

Weight 34.5 ounces: Currently weighing 35.5 ounces, the bat weighs at an acceptable range for bats used by Cobb.

Game use: Bat exhibits heavy game use, multiple cleat marks around the barrel end. Stitch marks on barrel end. Handle crack which has been repaired.

Final Grade (MEARS A7): A base grade of 5 points was awarded for the bat being consistent with model, length and weight as used by Cobb. 3 points for heavy use. Minus 1 point for cracked/discoloration of handle.

Final Grade: A base grade of 5 points was assigned for bat being consistent with respect to weight, model, centerbrand, and approximate length of 1920s Cobb bats, 3 points for heavy game use / cleat marks, minus 1 point for missing handle tape and discoloration in a small area left of the center brand.
