1941 Ty Cobb Signed Check in Framed Display

Starting Bid - $200, Sold For - $1,080

Ty Cobb personal check, dated June 13, 1941, signed in black ink (grading "9") by “Tyrus R. Cobb.” The check, drawn on the First National Bank of Nevada, has been made out to “Calif Water Service Co.” in the amount of $4.75. While there are many Cobb checks (he saved everything and his family made literally hundreds of checks available after his passing, in exchange for a donation to the Cobb Educational Foundation, a charity that helps underprivileged children), a Cobb check is always a classic that provides his signature in a form that is very substantial and ideal for display. As such they have always been a highly prized addition to any advanced autograph collection. The check (8.25 x 3 inches) has standard bank cancellation stamps and perforations, and displays a diagonal crease in the upper left corner. In Very Good to Excellent condition overall. Matted and framed together with a photographic print (10.5 x 13.5 inches) of Cobb to total dimensions of 19 x 26 inches. LOA from James Spence/JSA.
SOLD FOR $1,080
