    1975-76 Joe Montana Signed Checks/Deposit Slips Lot of 10. Eight checks drawn on Joe and Kim Montana's Notre Dame bank account make payments to Thrifty Mart, the telephone company and the South Bend Medical Foundation. Each is filled out entirely in the superstar quarterback's hand, and signed "Joseph C. Montana" at the close. Two deposit slips for the same account are similarly signed. All are in flawless condition, with no folds, tears or other condition problems. One of several lots of checks offered within this auction. We are aware of no other Montana checks ever having surfaced in the hobby prior to this grouping. Auction LOA from James Spence Authentication.

    If this lot looks familiar to you, there's a reason for that. The Joe Montana Notre Dame Collection, consigned to Heritage by Montana's first wife Kim, initially appeared in our May 2008 Signature Sports Collectibles Auction. Immediately after the close of the auction, Heritage was contacted by lawyers for the Hall of Fame quarterback challenging the ownership rights of certain contents of the lots, and as a result all sales had to be cancelled. A year and a half later, with all the dust of legal wranglings finally settled, we are able to present the abridged contents of the archive for your collecting enjoyment. Each lot will be accompanied by a letter of provenance from Kim Montana.

    I just wanted to let you know how thrilled I am with the results of the auction. Friday night was a blast. I had a hard time sleeping I was so pumped up.
