Description1960 Ty Cobb Signed Personal Check. The most successful post-retirement businessman in our National Pastime's history, the Georgia Peach used the same single-minded determination that made him the reigning Hit King to conquer the world of finance. Here he makes a check out to "Sierra Pac Power Co.." to the tune of "$35.00." His signature green pen displays solidly throughout the 3x8" note. A single crease appears vertically 2.5" from the left edge. Please be advised that there are small pieces of tape around the edges and near the fold from where the check was once mounted into a display - likewise there is fading in a rectangle around Cobb's full name signature, though the paper is more impacted than the autograph. Pre-Certified
Guide Value or Estimate: $1,000 - up.

Sunday Internet Sports: These auctions are presented only online and bidding is only taken through our website. There are two phases of bidding during this type of auction: 1) Normal bidding: Bids are taken up until 10 PM CT the night the auction closes. 2) 15 Minute Ending: On a lot-by-lot basis, starting at 10:00 PM CT, any person who has bid on the lot previously may continue to bid on that lot until there are no more bids for 15 minutes. For example, if you bid on a lot during Normal Bidding, you could participate during Extended Bidding for that lot, but not on lots you did not bid on previously. If a bid was placed at 10:03, the new end time for that lot would become 10:18. If no other bids were placed before 10:18, the lot would close. If you are the high bidder on a lot, changing your bid will not extend the bidding during the 15 Minute Ending phase (only a bid from another bidder will extend bidding). If you are the only bidder at 10 PM, you will automatically win the lot at 10:15. Important: After normal bidding ends, you must be signed-on to the Heritage site to see the bidding option on lots where you qualify for extended bidding.
