Guide for Detroit Tigers Collectibles And Memorabilia collectors

Memorabilia that was once signed, owned or used by Tommy Bridges (who played for the team from 1930 to 1946) or Ty Cobb (from 1905 to 1926) is considered to be the most valuable.

Memorabilia that dates back to before the 1950s is considered to be more rare than memorabilia from the 1960s to present.

Restoration of a Detroit Tigers jersey, uniform, helmet, baseball, baseball bat, Championship ring, card or program is not recommended.
