    1948 Ty Cobb Signed Check. The game of baseball hasn't, nor will it ever, encounter a player quite like Tyrus Cobb. Known for playing the game of baseball with an unprecedented ferocity, Cobb did everything in his power to upstage the competition. The man who three times eclipsed the .400 mark, Cobb settled into a comfortable life after his playing days were done. Sound investments helped Cobb realize a fortune. Presented is a check dated May 8, 1948 draw from the First National Bank of Nevada for the sum of $4.50. The check is made out to the "California Water Service Co." and signed by Cobb on the bottom. The signature rates about 6-7/10 and has a few red marks, none which touch the signature. The check is encapsulated in a JSA/BGS holder. Encapsulation by Beckett Grading Services James Spence Authentication.
