    1958 Ty Cobb Signed Check, PSA Mint 9. Despite Cobb's reputation for bad behavior, he was quite vigilant in his response to fan mail in his later years, and generous to those seeking his autograph. We assume that this check, made payable to the "U.S. Post Office, Menlo Park Calif," paid for postage in fulfilling these requests. Cobb's favored green ink is in fine form here, rating a consistent and impressive 10/10. Bank stamping and punch coding remains well clear of his beautiful "Tyrus R. Cobb" signature, and a pair of vertical creases are all but invisible. One of the most visually arresting Cobb checks we've seen. Encapsulated by PSA/DNA for protection and unquestioned authenticity. 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.
