What’s a Ty Cobb Signed Baseball Autograph Really Worth?
Strength of the signature.
This is definitely the most important factor. A gorgeous ball that is perfectly white, but yields a faint signature is remains lower on the value scale. Take a look at the two below:
Condition of the baseball.
A stunning Cobb signature graced with a backdrop of a ball similar to that in The Sandlot, and you’re not in the same league (sorry for the pun) as one which has a crisp, white creamy surface. What you really want is the best of both worlds – signature strength and the condition of the ball. The value, or worth of a Ty Cobb autographed baseball comprises many variables. But what if you don’t have a baseball but perhaps a Cobb signed letter or autograph. Here is an example of I am talking about:

Back to signed baseballs…
Ty Cobb Autographed Baseball Value. In general, most collectors of vintage signed baseballs prefer one that has a “sweet spot” autograph.
