    Description

    1941 Ty Cobb Signed Government Postcard. A booming black fountain pen signature from the greatest talent of our National Pastime's Dead Ball Era was mailed from the Peach's home in Menlo Park, California on the thirtieth anniversary of Cobb's first ever grand slam. A small degree of paper loss on verso is likely attributed to removal from a scrapbook, otherwise the postcard shows no noteworthy condition faults. One of many government postcards from the collection of young Howard Lyon presented within this auction. Encapsulated by PSA/DNA for protection and unquestioned authenticity.
