    1924 Miller Huggins Signed New York Yankees Payroll Check, PSA/DNA Mint 9. Small in stature but enormous in Yankee relevance and collecting appeal, Hall of Fame manager Miller Huggins earned his Cooperstown bronze primarily for the six American League flags and three World Championships claimed during a dozen seasons in pinstripes. The man charged with the challenge of keeping the boisterous Babe under control endorsed this April 30, 1924 payroll check issued to him by "The American League Base Ball Club of New York, Inc." with a 9+/10 blue ink signature on verso. Front is signed by fellow Hall of Famer Ed Barrow and team owner Jake Ruppert in equally bold vintage ink. Vertical center fold remains clear of all autographs. Huggins' sudden passing in 1929 served to secure his position as one of the Hall's most challenging autographs, and you'll find few more appealing examples than this tough full name "Miller J. Huggins" example. Graded PSA/DNA Mint 9. Auction LOA from James Spence Authentication.
