#8312 - Lou Gehrig 1930 Signed Payroll Check - PSA/DNA NM-MT 8 Estimate: $30,000+

Fantastic 1930 Yankees paycheck for "Henry Louis Gehrig"

The American League Base Ball Club of New York check, 9 x 3.25, filled out in type and and signed by Ruppert, "Jacob Ruppert," and vertically countersigned by Barrow, "E. G. Barrow," payable to Henry Louis Gehrig for $2,289.87, August 15, 1930. Endorsed on the reverse in fountain pen by Lou Gehrig using his full name, "Henry Louis Gehrig." The check covers Gehrig's salary for August 1st to 15th, minus a dinner charge at the Fort Shelby Hotel. In fine condition, with light vertical folds and cancellation holes slightly affecting Gehrig's middle name. After a scorching hot summer, Gehrig cooled down in the month of August, batting .385 with four home runs. He finished out the 1930 campaign with career highs in hits (220) and batting average (.379), and led the American League in RBI with 173. A most desirable payroll check signed by three Hall of Famers. Encapsulated by PSA/DNA, with the signature graded NM-MT 8.
