    1917 Ty Cobb Handwritten Partial Letter to His Grandmother from The Ty Cobb Collection. An adoring grandson sends his love on the occasion of his grandmother's eightieth birthday. We have one full page and a portion of a second, but there is clearly some portion of the letter missing. The "T.R. Cobb" signature at the top of the first page is a combination of a printed "T.R.C." monogram and Cobb's handwritten final three letters. All text but that monogram is in Cobb's 9/10 black fountain pen ink. Both pages exhibit wear and some insect damage. Letter of provenance from family of Cobb's former teammate.
