Description



It is well documented that Ty Cobb handled himself on the diamond with aplomb. He was equally skilled in his financial affairs. This check from Cobb's personal bank account (which reportedly escalated to upwards of $11 million) is endorsed by the fiery Georgian. Dated "8/17/50" (in Cobb's hand), the document is made out to a physician in Cobb's traditional green ink. On the appropriate line, Cobb (d.1961) has signed "Tyrus R. Cobb" in black-ink steel tip fountain pen. One of few Cobb scriptings with his entire birth name, this one projects ("9") potency and comes with a full photo LOA form JSA. The voucher has normal cancellation stampings and hole punchings, none of which affect Cobb's magnificent signature.
