Georgia Peach's Dentures sold for $18K


 Tyus Raymond Cobb, nicknamed Georgia Peach, just had his dentures sold at an auction for $18,840. 

It was one of the more unique item that was auctioned off at SPC Auctions. The set of fake teeth were 

owned by Karen Shemonsky, a self-proclaimed sports nut and a daughter of a dentist, bought the upper 

and lower false teeth in 1999 and loaned it to the Baseball Hall of Fame for several months.

According to Karen

“When I saw that, I said to my husband, ‘That’s not bad for a piece of history,’” she said at the time. “It caught my eye. It’s so odd, so different.”

  Ty Cobb held over 90 MLB records including his combined total of 4,065 runs scored and runs batted 

in that are still the most produced by a Major League Baseball player.

 His legacy also includes college scholarships that are given to Georgia residents.
