    1922-31 Jacob Ruppert Signed New York Yankees Checks Lot of 13. Here is a baker's dozen of checks from the Yankees' front office, many payroll but other vendors and miscellaneous payments through the course of 10 seasons. All the checks are from The American League Base Ball Club of New York and drawn on either Yorkville Bank (eight checks, 1922-25) or Manufacturers Trust Company (five checks); all are signed in elegant black fountain pen by legendary team owner Jacob Ruppert and 11 of the 13 are countersigned by the Yankees' Hall of Fame General Manager Ed Barrow. The checks carry all the expected stamping and cancellation markings. Pre-certified by PSA/DNA. Auction LOA from James Spence Authentication.
