1185. Michael Jackson signed deposit check of $100,000 for Neverland Ranch accompanied by copy of real estate agreement for purchase of the property. This is the original $100,000 deposit check from Michael Jackson for Neverland Ranch. The check c/o Gelfand, Rennert & Feldman, paid to the order of City National Bank, Los Angeles, CA, dated July 6, 1987, is noted as "Deposit for Santa Barbara Property". Endorsed boldly in black ink, "Michael Jackson". Accompanied by a copy of the four-page Coldwell Banker real estate contract and receipt for deposit, dated July 2nd, 1987. Bill Bray, Michael Jackson's Security Chief, lost the check for several weeks and had to have a replacement issued. Bray's assistant, (and later Head of Transportation) Harold Andre Flint, found the check stored in a briefcase in the trunk of one of Bill's cars and Bray later told him he could keep it. Also included is the bound faux leather book for "Sycamore Valley Ranch" (which became Neverland Ranch) distributed to qualified buyers interested in the property. A fantastic relic concerning Jackson's acquisition of Neverland. Comes with an LOA signed by Harold Andre Flint.
