Buy This 61-Cent Check

Do you like worthless sports memorabilia that’s vaguely tied to “The Simpsons?” Then this Don Mattingly royalty check might be for you.

This is a residual check from Don Mattingly’s appearance on The Simpsons 1992 episode, “Homer at Bat.” Donnie appeared with other Major League all stars as ringers for Mr. Burns’ softball team.

The check is made out to Don Mattingly from Fox Studios and has been endorsed by Don on the back. The signature was witnessed by Schulte Sports and comes with their tamper-proof hologram. –from Schulte Auctions. Thanks, Jack.

Bidding has reached $79, which represents a -99.2 percent ROI, which is pretty good investing if you’re a Yankees fan. If people in New York are willing to pay this much for a canceled check, maybe we should start moving the world’s financial markets someplace less maniacal. Like Mike Tyson’s house.
