    Description

    1927 Earle Combs Signed New York Yankees Payroll Check. Though overshadowed by the dazzling exploits of teammates Ruth and Gehrig, Combs posted American League-best numbers in hits (231) and triples (23) in 1927, the World Championship season during which he banked this Yankee payroll check. Team owner Jake Ruppert and fellow Hall of Famer Ed Barrow assert their acceptance of the $1153.11 payment to Combs on the check front with their bold black fountain pen signatures, with the star outfielder penning "Pay only to the Southern National Bank, Richmond, Kentucy By Earle B. Combs" on verso as an endorsement. His writing is likewise NRMT-MT. The check exhibits mild handling wear and a vertical center fold but displays perfectly. A rare and special relic from the glory days of Murderer's Row. Pre-certified by PSA/DNA. Auction LOA from James Spence Authentication.
