Detailed description on our website.
One of baseball’s winningest managers, Joe McCarthy (d.1978) guided the New York Yankees through a great period of success, winning eight AL pennants and seven World Series championships. This knowledgeable baseball man also liked to keep abreast of business events and the world at large, as demonstrated by this payment to the Wall Street Journal. Presented is a 2/11/72 McCarthy signed check made payable to the Journal. Encapsulated and designated Authentic by SGC, this considerably sized 8x3 check shows in better grade with bold printing and writing and the typical array of bank cancellation stamps and perforations, which do not affect McCarthy’s solid (“8-9”) strength signature. Drawn on the Marine Midland Bank of Western New York, this check No. 3636 affords great display appeal with only one light vertical fold at center which is fairly unobtrusive.
