As sports editor for the Detroit News, H.G. Salsinger reported on Tigers great Ty Cobb for 18 seasons, beginning in 1909 when the outfielder won his only Triple Crown. He would go on to write about Cobb's career for decades after. This volume presents for the first time together Salsinger's two books on the Hall of Famer. Part One offers the first authorized biography, Our Ty (1924), while Part Two provides the writer's take on what, more than 25 years later, had become a familiar question, Which Was Greatest: Ty Cobb or Babe Ruth? (1951). Salsinger's close personal relationship with Cobb yields insights into the legend's complex personality, illuminating and sometimes dispelling myths that have risen in the literature since Cobb's death in 1961.
