    Description

    1940 Babe Ruth Signed Check. Highly desirable check format presents a bold block lettered "Babe Ruth" at left and the baseball legend's unmistakable 10/10 black fountain pen "GH Ruth" at lower right. Payment is made for $30.00 to "Dr. Hector J. McNeile," with all writing in the Bambino's bold hand. A light vertical center fold is the only condition issue worthy of note, with the overall presentation still falling easily within a NRMT designation. The check is attractively matted and framed beneath a modern photographic print of the Babe and his sidekick Lou Gehrig, extending the final dimensions to 14x18". LOA from PSA/DNA. LOA from James Spence Authentication.
    Guide Value or Estimate: $2,000 - $4,000.
