1887 White Stockings (Chicago Cubs) Baseball Banknote Worth $6,000

A National Baseball League advertising note that is as American as any piece of legal tender currency will make a rare appearance at public auction in the Heritage Currency Signature Sale in Dallas on Sept. 17. It is only the seventh time the firm has offered such an item.


The example being offered, with an overprint for Thorrington’s Boot and Shoe Office of Denver, is from the 1887 Chicago White Stockings, who are now the Cubs.

The face has the bust of legendary owner and sporting goods magnate Albert Goodwill Spalding and that of first baseman/manager Adrian Constantine (Cap) Anson, who played for 27 years and was the first player to reach 3,000 hits. The back has busts of 12 of the team’s players.

The note is in PCGS Currency Very Fine 35 condition and is estimated at $4,000 to $6,000.
