Ty Cobb Signed “Famous Slugger Yearbook” and Return Signature Addressed Envelope (“T.R. Cobb”)
Out of stock
Articulate, but with evidence of his penchant for inexact punctuation, Ty Cobb once responded to an autograph seeker through this handwritten message. The medium is a copy of the 1950 Famous Slugger Yearbook which is yet Near Mint. On page two of this publication, we discover the note “Dear Rip: – Long ago I gave away pictures have no more, send me one with postage will sign & return [signed] Ty Cobb.” Uniformly, the note and the signature are a bit light, but in the entirety, it’s clean and fully legible (about “8-9”). It appears that the instrument was fountain pen (uncharacteristically blue, however), and the signature is underscored per his classic wont.
Included with the publication, is the return envelope (admirably EX). Legible in blue fountain pen and standard address format, Cobb placed his signature “T.R. Cobb” in the return address area (about “8-9”). On the envelope, Cobb also directionally assisted the postal service to his new comrade (Rip) by filling in the required information.
