    1936 Marx Brothers Multi-Signed Check & More! We'll begin with the concession that this lot has nothing to do with sports, but if a tradition is broken, what better way to do it than with this iconoclastic crew of side-splitting brothers? Best here is a payroll check from Metro-Goldwyn Mayer made payable to "Chico Marx, Harpo Marx, Groucho Marx" for "$2552.56," and endorsed on verso by each in 10/10 black fountain pen ink. Only the relatively obscure Gummo is left out of the fun, as the autograph grouping is made a quartet with the addition of a 1978 check issued and signed by Zeppo in 9/10 black ink. Both checks exhibit typical bank stamping but no other issues of note. Pre-certified by PSA/DNA. Auction LOA from James Spence Authentication.

    I am completely satisfied, more to the point, absolutely ecstatic, about not only the proceeds but the wonderful professional manner every aspect of my little consignment was handled.
