Detroit Tigers - Ty Cobb Collection Incl. 1921 First National Bank of Lavonia Stock Certificate Signed Twice - Full Name "Tyrus R. Cobb" & Two Vintage Photos (Iconic Batting & Back in Georgia) (Incl. JSA Full LOAs)
Presented is an awesome collection of Ty Cobb related memorabilia.
The highlight of the collection is the stock certificate dated to 1921 for The First National Bank of Lavonia (GA). Ty Cobb generated a substantial amount of personal weath outside of baseball through investments and endorsements. Cobb was indeed baseball's first millionare.
This stock certificate records the sale of 18 shares of Capital Stock in The First National Bank of Lavonia. It is now known as Northeast Georgia Bank. This certificate is #226. It was signed in fountain pen as received on the front with Ty Cobb's full name "Tyrus R. Cobb". The reverse was also signed in Cobb's classic green fountain pen with his full name "Tyrus R. Cobb". The certificate itself has been stamped "Cancelled" on the front a number of times. Each signature for the front and back has an individual JSA full letter of authentication.
Interestingly enough, Cobb was not only an invester in The First National Bank of Lavonia but a director as well. Cobb owned a substantial amount of stock in the bank. This particular bank was special to him because it was based in his home state (Georgia).
Also included in the collection are two vintage photos of Cobb. Each photo has a RMY COA. The first is a 1936 portrait photo (6x8) when he came back to Georgia for the funeral of his mother. The second photo is an iconic 1950s re-strike of Cobb's 1907 "Iconic Batting Photo". It measures 7x9.
