Item 7387 - Bob Marley Twice-Signed Check Catalog 476 (May 2016)

(we are no longer accepting bids on this item)
Minimum Bid: $1,000.00
Sold Price: $10,233.65 (includes buyer's premium)


Amazing twice-signed Jamaica Citizens Bank Limited check, 8 x 3.5, filled out in another hand and signed by Marley, “Robert Marley,” payable to cash for $148, January 24, 1976, and endorsed on the reverse by Marley in the same manner. Also signed and endorsed by Allan Cole, road manager of The Wailers who is controversially credited with writing their song ‘War.’ In fine condition. The year 1976 saw Marley’s breakthrough in the United States with the release of Rastaman Vibration, which featured the now-classic songs ‘Positive Vibration,’ ‘Roots, Rock, Reggae,’ and ‘War.’ He followed up this effort in 1977 with Exodus—widely considered his greatest album—which secured him international stardom with the major hits ‘Jamming,’ ‘Waiting in Vain,’ and ‘One Love/People Get Ready.’ Marley is exceedingly rare in checks; this is the only one that has appeared on the market since his death 35 years ago. Pre-certified REAL.
