    Ty Cobb Autograph Letter Signed. One page, 3.5" x 5", on his personalized letterhead, n.p., September 6, 1955. Cobb sends his response to a request for an autograph. In part: "Appreciate your sentiment, feel honored to comply with your request. I am, Ty Cobb."

    Nicknamed The Georgia Peach, Tyrus Raymond Cobb is considered to be one of the greatest baseball players of all time. Cobb broke and set countless Major League records while playing for the Detroit Tigers, and later for the Philadelphia Athletics; some of his records stand to this day. At the time of his death in 1959, Cobb's estate was reported to be worth approximately $12 million, including $10 million worth of General Electric stock and $1.78 million in Coca-Cola stock. In today's dollars, Cobb's estate was worth more than $86 million.

    This note is written in green ink and in very fine condition; matted alongside a full-color "Donrus Grand Champion" depiction of Cobb in his prime and framed to an overall size of 11.25" x 8.5". An outstanding baseball collector's piece.
