    1930 Herb Pennock Signed New York Yankees Payroll Check His early death in 1948 makes Pennock one of the toughest Hall of Fame signatures, especially on a piece like this, a payroll check issued from the team for which he won three World Championships. Dated "June 16th, 1930," the check on the account of "The American League Base Ball Club of New York, Inc." pays "$1,377.25" to "Herbert Pennock" His endorsing signature on verso is a perfect 10/10. Also note the important autographs of team president Jacob Ruppert and Secretary/Treasurer E.G. Barrow on the front, both bold and perfect as well. The check was once folded into sixths, but these vertical creases do little to detract from the overall eye appeal. LOAs from James Spence & Steve Grad/PSA DNA and Mike Gutierrez/MGA.
