    1948 Jackie Robinson Signed Check Collection. Lot of 3 Filled out and signed entirely in the Brooklyn Dodgers Hall of Famers hand during a two-week period in the spring of 1948, the pioneer and baseball hero was settling in to his second season in the dangerous world of Major League Baseball at the time. Each check is drawn upon Jackie's Chemical Bank & Trust Company account in New York City, made payable to individuals in the amounts of one hundred fifty, sixty-five and thirty dollars each. Bank stamping affects one of the three signatures, but all ink is 10/10 and the checks display very well despite occasional creasing or rust stains from paper clips. Each comes with a letter of authenticity from Jackie's widow, Rachel Robinson. Additional LOAs from James Spence & Steve Grad/PSA DNA and Mike Gutierrez/MGA.
