    Description

    1943 Walter Johnson Signed Check, PSA/DNA Mint 9. "He's got a gun concealed about his person," journalist Ring Lardner once said of the mighty Big Train, "They can't tell me he throws them balls with his arm." The greatest fireballer of his era filled out and signed this personal check from "The Germantown Bank" entirely in his own 9+/10 hand. The check pays $55 to "Bank of Bethesda." Official bank stamping appears on front and verso, but these issues are of little concern and the autograph in particular remains all but untouched. A top-shelf example. Graded PSA/DNA Mint 9. Auction LOA from James Spence Authentication.
