    Description

    1953 Ty Cobb Handwritten & Signed Government Postcard.

    UPDATE: After the catalog went to print, this item was encapsulated by PSA/DNA, Authentic.

    He had a reputation as one of the sport's saltiest figures, but Cobb typically comes across as quite gracious in his written correspondence. Here's such an example, a considerate promise to sign a photograph for a fan should that fan provide one for the purpose. Cobb utilizes his famous green ink (9/10), and signs with his initials. Postcard exhibits mailing/handling wear but no flaws of real distraction. Auction LOA from SGC Authentic.
