    Description

    1939 Ty Cobb Handwritten Signed Letter from the Hayward Binney Archive. The Georgia Peach returns home to California after a long trip east, reporting some details of the journey to his broker and his enjoyment at being able to spend time together in person. Amazingly, the "June-29-39" letter fails to mention the main reason for the trip, Cobb's enshrinement at the dedication of the Baseball Hall of Fame! The two-page missive is penned in 9+/10 black fountain pen ink on Cobb's personal letterhead and signed "Sincerely, Ty" at the close. Some staining is of little distraction, and barely intersects with any writing. A small tear at upper left of first page is likewise innocuous. Pre-certified by PSA/DNA. Auction LOA from James Spence Authentication.
