1933 Ty Cobb Handwritten Letter

1933 Ty Cobb Handwritten Letter

The Georgia Peach responds to a query from a sportswriter who asks for Cobb's opinion regarding the game's greatest fielding outfielder. The journalist expresses that he and Babe Ruth had discussed the matter, and Ruth had drawn "...a hair line between Harry Hooper and Tris Speaker…" Cobb replies on the back of the page mailed to him, in part, "…I would have to say Speaker was the best, he had even a better arm than Hooper had and his throwing was fine but Speaker played center had more ground to cover and could go to his left & right…Hooper playing right field did not have to go to his left which of course he no doubt could also have done…" He closes with, "I am, Very Truly, Ty Cobb." Ink is 10/10; page has original mailing folds, otherwise EX+.
