The notorious gangster Al Capone's twice-signed bank document is attracting significant attention and bids at Goldin Auction House. The item, dated Nov. 18, 1926, showcases Capone's autograph, which has been certified as authentic by PSA/DNA (AF03208). Capone, known as a "modern-day Robin Hood" for his involvement in bootlegging and organized crime during the Prohibition Era, rose to infamy as the leader of the "Chicago Outfit."
After joining a gang in New York City, Capone relocated to Chicago to assist Johnny Torrio in running a bootlegging syndicate that catered to the public's demand for alcohol during the Prohibition Era. Enjoying a favorable relationship with judges and local law enforcement, Capone accumulated substantial wealth and power.
However, his public image deteriorated following the St. Valentine's Day Massacre incident, damaging his reputation among both the public and law enforcement officials. Eventually convicted of tax evasion charges, he received an 11-year prison sentence but served only eight years.
The latest bid on this encapsulated interest note stands at an impressive $10,000 with eleven bids already placed. This artifact provides collectors and enthusiasts alike with an opportunity to own a piece of history connected to one of America's most infamous criminals.
