Description

    1924 Christy Mathewson Signed Check. The legendary New York Giants pitcher's brilliant career and early death make his autograph among the most desirable and rare for serious autograph hounds. Particularly intriguing is this check drawn from Mathewson's "Adirondack National Bank" account on September 20, 1924, and made payable to "T. Finnigan" for the amount of $118.40. All writing is in the founding Hall of Fame member's elegant hand, and rating 10/10 except for the digits "44/100" and the final three-quarters of Mathewson's signature, which were brushed by an errant hand before the ink had fully dried. Two vertical folds at the center of the check do nothing to detract. With most collectors realizing the investment value of such a scarce and important artifact as a Mathewson signature, there will soon be almost none available at public sale. Don't miss your chance. LOA from Steve Grad & Zach Rullo/ PSA DNA.
