I thought this was a neat item from my favorite baseball player of all time so I picked it up. I liked it because it showed his fighting spirit, as well as deep emotion, when he writes, "I am going to ward off with God's help the "bow out" or final curtain as long as possible." Even the great Ty Cobb showed his mortality.

Great Ty Cobb item ! Hopefully helps to debunk the lies regarding Cobb and his personality , perpetuated by hack biographer Al Stump, and also the interview in "Glory of Their Times" of team mate Sam Crawford who personally didn't like the "Georgia Peach"
Almost all of the people I've ever spoken to that knew him personally had nothing but praise for him both as a player and person

He sounds like a good guy in his letters but isn't it true only a few ball players attended his funeral?

Just read that this is a myth too. He had a private family funeral and representatives from Major League baseball and the Tigers did attend. I read a few other personal accounts online too. He really does seem like a nice guy.

As I have said before, Cobb was a genuine enigma.

His "reputation" on and off the field do not resonate in his letters that I have read. I'm always amazed at the stark contrast between the two...

Picked the Jensen, Brazle, and Musial from Phil Marks at the Chantilly show yesterday. Also got the Lepcio to send out and get signed for my 52 set.

I have never seen a Musial signature like that...I don't know if it's authentic...looks nothing like his signature IMHO...
