The check is made out to Bucknell University where Mathewson was a star athlete in both baseball and football. During his playing career Mathewson would rack up 373 wins and have a career ERA of 2.13. He is regarded as one of the most dominant pitchers in the history of baseball. In 1924 Mathewson was suffering from tuberculosis and in 1925 Mathewson passed away at the early age of 45.
Mathewson is by far the rarest signature from the original five hall of fame inductees. The check is 6.5 2.75 inches and was drawn from the Adirondack National Bank. A stamped endorsement appears on the reverse. There are two light vertical folds, two small corner creases, and normal bank cancellations/stamps. PSA has graded the signature a Mint 9.
