Description



The Mahatma came full circle in the early 1960s, returning to the St. Louis Cardinals after a 20-year absence and riding the wave of the 1964 world championship. In the summer of that last season before his 1965 death, Rickey bestowed his black-ink "8-9" signature on this 3x7 check for $100 worth of groceries. (The reverse is stamped for Bettendorf-Rapp Supermarkets.) Displays frontally as EX with mounting wear on the reverse perimeter. Auction LOA from JSA.
