Ty Cobb personal check, dated June 12, 1956, signed in green ink by “Tyrus R. Cobb.” Encapsulated by PSA/DNA, with the signature graded NM-MT 8. The check, drawn on the First National Bank of Nevada, features Ty Cobb’s preprinted name along the left front border and has been made out to "Cash" in the amount of $18. The blue-ink endorsement of "J. Coffis" appears on the reverse. 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, and this is a particularly outstanding example. The check (8 x 3 inches) has standard bank cancellation stamps and perforations, as well as a slight vertical fold. In Excellent condition overall. Auction LOA from James Spence/JSA. Reserve $200. Estimate $400/$800.
