    Description

    1940 Ty Cobb Signed Check. The Georgia Peach buys a car. Illustrating the tremendous wealth the savvy Dead Ball superstar amassed after his playing days, Cobb writes a check for just short of $2,500 to "Brown Motors Inc.," applying all ink and his closing "Tyrus R. Cobb" signature in the boldest of 10/10 black ink. The bank's stamping and punch coding remains clear of the all-important autograph, and a couple of small fold lines are only apparent upon the closest of inspection. A solid example featuring the largest purchase we've encountered in a Cobb check. LOA from PSA/DNA. LOA from James Spence Authentication.

    Just wanted to let you know how pleased I am regarding the sale of my hockey jersey. You were great to work with, you answered all my phone calls and e-mails in a prompt manner, and you did a great job marketing the jersey.
