Gorgeous Ty Cobb Handwritten and Signed Letter
circa 1957
PSA Gem Mint 10

The two page letter features the “Georgia Peach’s” iconic green ink and has been paired with a classic photo of Cobb rounding third base.

Dated November 3, 1957, the letter is a response to an autograph request, with the Hall of Famer seeking return postage from his fan. It reads as follows….

“Dear Levato,

The enclosed will indicate I paid 23 cents for postage your ball and package, you placed 34 cents on package I paid 23 cents more, you enclose 24 cents in stamps for return. I receive MANY such as yours, I have had to adopt this rule, to notify and have sender cover proper postage as it runs into our account. I feel honored to comply with all requests though many haven’t sent proper box addressed return and stamps as you have, send the 23 cents in postage and I will autograph your ball and return with the postage you enclosed and if any more postage required as per your package sent via 34 cents then you can pay the proper amount there over 24 cents which you enclosed in package. Sorry seems I have autographed one or two requests from you in the past. I receive so many which in all constitutes quite a task for me so I feel any outlay by me is going too far.

I am, respectfully

Ty Cobb

An impressive piece of baseball history from one of the game’s greatest players.
Comes with a Letter of Authenticity from PSA.
