The American League Base Ball Club of New York check, 9 x 3.25, filled out in type and signed by Ruppert, "Jacob Ruppert," and vertically countersigned by Barrow, "E. G. Barrow," payable to Charles Ruffing for $619.76, June 16, 1930. Endorsed on the reverse in fountain pen by Ruffing, "Charles Ruffing." In fine condition. This was one of Ruffing's first Yankees paychecks—he had been traded to New York by Red Sox owner Bob Quinn a month earlier for reserve outfielder Cedric Durst, $50,000 in cash, and a $50,000 loan from Ruppert. Ruffing debuted for the Yankees on May 11th, and this check covers his salary from June 1-15th. A wonderful triple-signed Yankees paycheck from three Hall of Famers. Pre-certified PSA/DNA.
