    1954 Ty Cobb Handwritten Letter Though his reputation for antisocial behavior ranks with his reputation for skill with a bat, the Georgia Peach mellowed later in life, and one often finds his correspondence to be quite gracious in his golden years. Though he explains to a fan that he is unwilling to sign as many photographs as the fan has requested, he closes by stating that, "...I have always felt honored anyone would want my autograph..." The 5" x 6.5" note on a Reno, Nevada hotel's stationery is penned in the Hall of Famer's distinctive green ink and signed, "Sincerely, Ty Cobb." A single vertical crease bisects the page, and glue remnants on the back remain from its former life in a scrapbook. Neither detracts significantly from eye appeal. LOAs from James Spence & Steve Grad/PSA DNA and Mike Gutierrez/MGA.
