Description

Wonderful ballpoint signature and inscription, "The Who, To Maggie, All the best, Keith Moon,” on the reverse of a 6.25 x 3.25 check from National Westminster Bank Limited. In very good condition, with light overall creasing, three vertical folds, and stains at the bottom "from spilt curry." Accompanied by a certificate of authenticity from Tracks and a letter from the original owner: "The Who were playing at the New Theatre, Oxford on 6th May 1974 and I was due to go and see them with a group of friends. Unfortunately, I couldn’t go to the concert because I was in Churchill hospital having an operation. My friends went to the gig and afterwards went on to Uddins Manzil restaurant on Walton Street. Keith Moon was there! My friends explained that I has missed the concert and asked him for this autograph. The only paper they had was my friend Christabel’s cheque book. He signed the back of the cheque, but unfortunately the table was a bit messy and the marks on the cheque are from spilt curry!"
