    Description

    1927 Ty Cobb Signed Letter from the Hayward Binney Archive. Shoeless Joe and Pete Rose may be the most famous players serving a lifetime ban from professional baseball, but many have forgotten how close the great Ty Cobb came to suffering the same fate. He makes reference to the game-fixing scandal that nearly condemned him to baseball ignominy in this typed letter dated "February 16th, 1927," writing, in part, "Have not been able to answer because I wanted the recent matters cleared up...The letters from my good friends have certainly been a consolation to me during my trouble." Cobb's closing black fountain pen signature rates 9/10. Original mailing folds but no other issues. Original mailing envelope is included, unsigned. Pre-certified by PSA/DNA. Auction LOA from James Spence Authentication.
