Big man Bill Russell played big on the court with the Boston Celtics and spent big off the court. Winner of 11 NBA championships during his 13 years with Boston, the legendary center moved west to coach the Seattle Supersonics in the 1970s. After stepping down as the Sonics coach, Russell remained in the Seattle area, where he endorsed this check dated 9/5/78. Made payable to himself in the amount of $700.00, a considerable sum for the time, this Seattle First National Bank check #1315 bears (2) Russell signatures, both desirable ("9") strength examples, with one on the obverse endorsement line at bottom right and the other on the reverse near the left edge. PSA/DNA has encapsulated this vintage payment voucher with an Authentic Auto designation on the label.
