** SOLD – ONE OTHER CHECK STILL AVAILABLE **

Legendary Grateful Dead lead guitarist and singer. Uncommon personal bank check signed “Jerome Garcia”, October 30, 1992, drawn from WestAmerica Bank in San Rafael, California.  The check appears to be accomplished in Garcia’s hand, made payable to “Cecelia Garcia” for $100.

Expected bank cancellations with just touching top of signature.

We do not believe Cecelia Garcia was related to Jerry but we do believe she was a Chumash medicine woman who worked in California.   Great opportunity to own a RARE check with the added bonus of a second “Garcia” print signature.

At this time, Garcia was on a short hiatus from the Grateful Dead as they cancelled their planned Fall 1992 tour to allow him to recover from a collapse caused by exhaustion.  He would return to the stage the night after he wrote this check, with the Jerry Garcia Band in Oakland, before playing his return show with the Grateful Dead on December 2, 1992 in Denver, Colorado.
