    Description

    1941 Ty Cobb Handwritten Signed Letter from the Hayward Binney Archive. Two-page letter dated "May-27-41" on Cobb's personal letterhead begins with a bang, as he writes, "Dear Hayward:- I am leaving here about 17th or 18th of June for Boston & New York where I play Babe Ruth on June 25th or 26th." The letter goes on to discuss other issues related to this golf excursion, with Cobb noting "I had a setback last October as I developed a bursitis of right shoulder from a fall while on a goat hunting trip and could not play for five months." Black fountain pen ink is 9+/10 throughout with short second page of letter concluding "Sincerely, Ty." Original mailing folds and punch hole at upper left corner of each page, neither of which causes any distraction. Pre-certified by PSA/DNA. Auction LOA from James Spence Authentication.
