Description



Just win, baby. And win they did in 1977 for Davis' first Raiders championship. These three team-issued checks hail from the following off-season and measure a large 8-1/2 x 3-1/2". The most interesting one is a $3,374.40 payment to "Orthopedic and Surgical Assoc." with the notated breakdown (in an unidentified hand) that reads, "Atkinson 110.00; Biletnikoff 91.00; Rice 698.00; Rowe 1,346.00; Vella 220.00; Colzie 909.40." We can only wonder at the circumstances of these treatments and how they may have been related to gridiron injuries resulting from the Raiders' aggressive on-field play. Even more mysterious is another for the princely sum of $8,757.10 to Laurel Grove Hospital. EX condition with "9-10" signatures. Davis died in 2011. Auction LOA from JSA.
