Wally Pipp was a first baseman who won a World Series Championship with the New York Yankees in 1923. He is considered one of the best power hitters in the dead ball era and he was a two-time American League home run champion. Pipp today is best remembered as the player who lost his starting job to Lou Gehrig at the beginning of Gehrig’s streak of playing in 2,130 consecutive games. Offered here is a New York Yankees’ payroll check signed by Wally Pipp in black pen on the back. Signed “Walter Pipp” the back of this check, this check was for the amount of $875.33, which covers “Salary to May 15th Less uniform deposit” which was $30.00. The date of this check was “May 15th” 1924 and on the top is “The American League Base Ball Club of New York, Inc.” The check was also signed by Yankees’ Vice President George E. Ruppert, the brother of Yankees’ owner Jacob Ruppert, and Ed Barrow. The check number is 7178 and there are punch holes for when the check cleared and some of the holes affect Pipp’s signature. This check has been encapsulated by PSA/DNA (83500835).
