    Description

    1956 Ty Cobb Signed Check with Pete Rose. When talking baseball, no two players showed more prowess for getting hits than Ty Cobb and Pete Rose. Perhaps two of the most controversial players as well, both men have nonetheless earned their place in baseball lore. With Cobb finishing at 4,191 hits, Rose bettered the record by sixty-five hits, entrenching himself in the record books at 4,256. Regardless of the black mark on his career for betting on baseball, no one can take away the fact that "Charlie Hustle" played every game to win, while "The Georgia Peach" is still remembered as one of the fiercest competitors in the history of the game.

    With the value of Cobb autographs so high, there are very few collectors who have dared have Rose add his signature to a Cobb piece to make a dual-signed item, making this check a rare find. Cobb and Rose both present in 7/10 to 8/10. Cobb's signature trails off at the end. The corners are folded and there is a central crease near Rose's autograph. Pre-certified by PSA/DNA. Auction LOA from James Spence Authentication.
