Rare signed souvenir photo album of "The World's Greatest Ball Player"

Fantastic circa 1910 souvenir photo presentation featuring two affixed 3.5 x 5.75 magazine-type portraits of Cobb in a cardstock folder, measuring 12.25 x 9.25 open, signed vertically across the center fold in fountain pen, "Very Truly, Ty Cobb." In very good condition, with loss to the lower corners, a chip to the bottom edge of one of the images, and complete separation to the central vertical fold passing through the sentiment, repaired with archival tape on the back. Accompanied by the detached cover, featuring the title: "Souvenir Photos of Ty Cobb, The World's Greatest Ball Player." Very few of these signed presentations are known, and Cobb's youthful image makes this an especially appealing piece.
