    1940 Ty Cobb Handwritten & Signed Letter from The Joe DiMaggio Estate. The presented lot entered the hobby as part of the The Joe DiMaggio Estate, though there appears to be no other connection to the Yankee Clipper. The two-page handwritten letter is addressed to Cobb's friend Hyman Pearlstone at Los Angeles' Ambassador Hotel, where Bobby Kennedy would be assassinated twenty-eight years later. Cobb writes of purchasing a Coca-Cola bottling plant for his sons, and his past and future traveling plans. A couple fingerprints on first page may be Cobbs. Ink averages 8/10, and closing "Ty Cobb" signature is 7/10. Pages exhibit original mailing folds but no damage. Mailing envelope is written in Cobb's hand and, for reasons unknown, autographed on the back by Jack Benny and Edward G. Robinson. Full LOA from PSA/DNA. Auction LOA from James Spence Authentication.
