    1936 Ty Cobb Handwritten Signed Letter from the Hayward Binney Archive. Was the Georgia Peach involved in some insider trading? This lengthy three-page letter to his broker makes a mysterious comment that suggests something isn't quite kosher, writing, "Don't forget your letters will be destroyed no one will see or ever know of any reference to 'Chief' or anything..." Cobb speaking glowingly in the letter of Studebaker stock, a car company that is famous today for its swift decline into obsolescence (though several years after Cobb's passing). All black fountain pen ink on Cobb's personal letterhead is 9+/10. He signs, "As ever, Ty," though we should note that he refers to "Mrs. Cobb" on the second page, another autograph of sorts. Original mailing folds and small hole at upper left corner of each, neither a distraction. Pre-certified by PSA/DNA. Auction LOA from James Spence Authentication.
