    Charleroi, PA - $10 1902 Plain Back Fr. 627 The First NB Ch. # 4534
    An example with rubber-stamped signatures of Cashier R.H. Rush and President John K. Tener. Tener compiled a record of 22 wins and 20 losses in two seasons as a pitcher for the Chicago White Stockings (National League, first name of the current Cubs franchise) in 1888-89. Tener would go on to become a member of the United States House of Representatives (1908-10), governor of Pennsylvania (1911-15), and president of the National Baseball League (1913-18). This note was pictured on page 170 in an article Bob wrote for the Society of Paper Money Collectors entitled "John K. Tener This Banker Knew How to 'Pitch' His Customers" that appeared in Paper Money May/June 2005 Whole No. 237. Bob was also able to find a postcard on this three-story bank. It is postmarked at Charleroi with a 1924 date. This lot contains both a note and a postcard. Very Good-Fine.
