TY GIVES A TIP: WHAT WAS IT?

August 17, 1958

The classic baseball mystery has been: What do the pitcher and catcher say to each other at one of those mid-game, halfway-to-the-mound meetings? Here, Photographer Hy Peskin poses another. What goes on between an oldtimer like Ty Cobb and a youngtimer like Mickey Mantle when they meet, as they did below, before the New York Yankees' Oldtimers Game at the. Stadium last weekend? Cobb, as practically every fan knows, was probably the greatest hitter and toughest competitor in the game's history, and Mantle is as good as or better than any around today. What every banker knows is that Cobb is also the richest man the game has ever produced. In his native state of Georgia, he acquired a large block of original stock in a new company that was making something called Coca-Cola. In the city of his greatest fame, Detroit, he latched on to some stock in a young, growing company named General Motors. Mantle, who earns some $75,000 a year with the Yankees, owns a motel and shares ownership of a company that produces railroad ballast, is not so well known to bankers—yet. Well, what do these people talk about? We don't really know but, as can be seen in our version below, we think it is significant that Mantle listened and listened, speaking only in the last frame.
