    Description

    1939 Ty Cobb Handwritten Signed Letter. Cobb's reputation for ferocity and brutality never seems in keeping with his written correspondence, which is almost unfailingly cordial and humble. Here we find the iconic Dead Ball star flattered by a request for his autograph, which he provides at the close of this single page penned upon his personal letterhead. All ink is 9/10 or better. Page exhibits original mailing folds but no other flaws of note. A fine little letter sent upon Cobb's return from Cooperstown for the opening of the Baseball Hall of Fame. Pre-certified by PSA/DNA. Auction LOA from James Spence Authentication.
