    Description

    1948 Lefty Grove Signed Check & Oversized Photograph Framed Display. Lefty Grove was a key ingredient in Connie Mack's second great dynasty in the late 1920's and early 1930's. The talented southpaw was on a streak of 20+ win seasons going back to 1927. He would repeat that success the year this card came out, finishing the '33 season 24-8 - completing 21 games. Grove has the distinction of pitching the final game of his Hall of Fame career the same day that Ted Williams elevated his 1941 batting average to .406.

    Drawn from the accounts of the Lonaconing Branch of the Liberty Trust Company, "Robert M. Grove" signed over $610.00 to Tom Wilson using his full name on May 22, 1948. The signature displays boldly despite minor age-related fading and minor interference from a cancellation stamp. All in the beautiful display, with a crystal clear oversized photograph included, measures 16x22". Pre-Certified by PSA/DNA.
