    1924 Herb Pennock Signed New York Yankees Payroll Check. The Golden Age Yanks are remembered almost exclusively for their slugging, but you can't win without defense, and Pennock earned his Hall of Fame plaque on the mound during those pinstriped seasons. He went twenty-one and nine the year he deposited this payroll check for $1076.75 from "The American League Base Ball Club of New York, Inc.," filled out in type and signed on obverse by team owner Jacob Ruppert and Hall of Fame exec Ed Barrow. Pennock's endorsing signature is located on reverse, the rare full name "Herbert J. Pennock" format. All three Yankee signatures rate 9/10 or better, and the check itself exhibits a vertical center fold line but no other issues of note. Pre-certified by PSA/DNA. Auction LOA from James Spence Authentication.
