Description

Presented is a fabulous framed signed check and 1910 premium display of arguably the most underrated player the game has ever known, Honus Wagner. Wagner, who won eight batting titles over 12 seasons, rarely gets mentioned with his modern constituents but during his playing days, there was no player more feared and more loved. This stupendous display includes two beauties; a crisply penned check dated 1918 and a 1910 Baseball Magazine Premium. The check came from the First National Bank of Carnegie and was written in Wagner’s hand to McGregor Bros Co for a whopping $9.52. The signature is bold but the bank unceremoniously canceled the check right over the Dutchman’s signature. The 1910 premium is in tremendous condition, and measures 17 ½” x 9 ½”. The overall aesthetic of this vintage item borders on awe-inspiring with the overall framed dimensions being 27 ¼”x 15 ¼” with no flaws. COA from James Spence Authentication.
