Because he was so fast and so scrappy, sometimes it's easy to forget that Ty Cobb cut a rather tall figure at 6-foot-1. But here his height is conspicuous as the Georgia Peach looms second from right. The seldom-seen postcard measures 3-1/2" x 5-1/2" and is technically GD/VG but displays nicer. The caption at top reads, "Detroit Baseball Team, having a Flag Day at the Season's Opening, Detroit, Mich."
