Description


Partly-printed contract, signed “Tyrus R. Cobb,” one page both sides, 11.75 x 8.5, December 31, 1930. Stock certificate for 100 shares in the Coca-Cola International Corporation issued to "Tyrus R. Cobb," endorsed on the reverse by Cobb to transfer and assign the shares to his eldest daughter, "Miss Shirley Cobb." In fine condition. This is how Ty Cobb made his fortune, which rumor was he used to carry around in paper bags. He bought Coca-Cola stock when it was dirt cheap. Born in 1911, Cobb's daughter Shirley would go on to open an independent bookstore in Palo Alto, California, and volunteer overseas with the Red Cross during World War II; in 1946, she was awarded the highest military award a civilian can receive, the Medal of Freedom, for her 'high standards of moral conduct and devotion to duty...in elevating the morale of the troops' in France and Italy. An interesting document combining America's national pastime with its favorite drink. Accompanied by a full letter of authenticity from PSA/DNA - MINT 9.
