Default For those who don't like cut autos....

I bought this last month and meant to post a pic here. I'm in the process of packing and came across it again. I met Enos Slaughter a few times growing up. My dad interviewed him for the local newspaper and he was always signing autos at local malls for cards shows down in North Carolina. Anyway, I don't like cut autos and jumped at the chance to buy this, especially seeing the price was right ($25). This was a check from Slaughter for payment to his dentist.....and it's from a bank where I used to hold finances! For those who don't like cut autos, enjoy!!

What are the measurements on that plastic case? I like the size of the cut autographs on cards just for ease of display and storage, but that seems like a nice way to show off a check without cutting it up.

I'd have to pull it back out of a packed box to give you the exact measurements, but the case is fairly large.....I would say 12" X 5.5".....

But this item is pretty cool. I like that I was able to snatch it up before it ended being a cut auto at some point. Slaughter was a REALLY nice guy, and I'm very happy to own this.

That looks great. Preservation of a piece of history, however minor, and gives context to the signature. Tells a story. Thanks for sharing!

I know it's not a cut auto. I was just pointing out that I'm glad I was able to grab it BEFORE it had the possibility of becoming one. I like preserving pieces like this and would hate to see it cut and ending up on card!
