Typed letter signed "Ty Cobb," one page, 7 x 10.5, personal letterhead, November 18, 1940. Letter to Tyrus V. Dahl of Texas A. & M., in full: "I have spent most of the summer in Nevada and Idaho and I am sorry to say that your announcement has just come to my attention while going over my accumulated mail. I know you must have thought me very unappreciative, but sometimes accidents happen. I am very happy to have received the announcement and to say that I feel very much honored that you have the same name as I and my only hope is that you will be able to live up under the handicap. If you receive this letter, please drop me a line as I would like to know your home address. I will be at the above address until next Spring, so hoping to hear from you soon and with every good wish." In fine condition, with some wrinkling to upper portion. An especially desirable Cobb letter boasting his full signature, as he often signed with just his first name. Pre-certified PSA/DNA.
