Undoubtedly, when collecting signatures of the 1927 Yankees the question most uttered is "Yeah, but do you have Urban Shocker?"

We all know Ruth, Gehrig, Lazzeri and Hoyt were the big names on Murderer's Row. But Urban Shocker was the first of the greatest collection of diamond talent to die. Less than a year after sweeping through the World Series, Shocker was dead to pneumonia. Of course, this has left a severe dearth in Urban Shocker autographs and leaves his as the ultimate challenge.

Grab your notebook and cross off Urban Shocker off that list with this 1925 Yankees payroll check. This check is endorsed by Shocker as well as HOF executive Ed Barrown and legendary owner Jacob Ruppert.

Shocker's free flowing signature is on the back although there are bank stamps present.

Offered is one of only a few surviving Urban Shocker payroll checks to surface in our industry.
