This check couldn’t be timelier, stamped Nov. 24, 1975 - this was the check given to Carlton Fisk from the Red Sox as payment following his World Series performance. Undoubtedly the most important signed check from Pudge in existence. Here we have the John Hancock of the greatest catcher of all time. Carlton Fisk is the owner of two of the most prestigious records a catcher can boast - the most home runs hit (376) and most games caught (2,229). But what he is most remembered for was his 12th inning homer that ricocheted off the foul pole to win Game 6 during the 1975 World Series. This single feat remains to this day the most dramatic and memorable win in World Series history. Check endorsed by Fisk on the verso in blue ballpoint, “Carlton E. Fisk.” Signature is NRMT, and grades a “9” out of a possible 10 with no fading, bleeding, blemishes, or interruptions. “Boston Red Sox - Fenway Park, Boston, Mass. 02215” check is made out for $9,034.01 and signed by “Mary E. Walsh.” Measures 8.5x3.5”. EX-MT condition with crisp edges and corners.
