    Description

    1936 Babe Ruth Double Signed Check. The fabulous allure that comes with a Babe Ruth check is at least doubly intensified when one stumbles across an example that has been twice signed. On the offered specimen the Babe has applied his "GH Ruth" in the lower right corner of this 1936 check written out for fifty dollars cash. The verso has been penned with the same signature, which has met with an unfortunate stripe of residual adhesive, presumably from a previous display life of the check. The removal has also led to some paper loss on the check's verso. The example remains fully legible and has faded very little after over seven decades. LOA from James Spence.
