    1948 Lou Costello Signed Check. This is a great part of American comedic history. The duo of Abbott and Costello is known by folks of every age; their timeless acts of "Who's on First?" and dozens of blockbuster films made them immortal. This is a signed check drawn on the account of one half of the duo, Lou Costello. The Bank of America check dip lays the usual processing stamps and perforations, with one on the reverse bleeding through and slightly impacting the signature. The check has been folded twice, one of which was through the last name of the signature. Check is dated October 26, 1948. Pre-Certified

    Guide Value or Estimate: $200 - up.
