    Description

    1941 Babe Ruth Signed Check Framed with Oversized Ted Williams Signed Photograph. The first and fourth members of the 500 Home Run Club share space upon this impressive autograph display certain to draw the attention of any fan of the long ball. Most noteworthy is the high-grade personal check from the Bambino, penned just weeks before Ted Williams began work on his stunning 1941 trek to .400. Ruth makes the check payable to a New York-area golf course and is forced to add a couple extra lines for the address of his bank, apparently lacking a pre-printed example. All ink, and his standard "GH Ruth" check signature, is 9+/10. The massive (19x22") color print of the historic meeting of the Bambino and The Kid is autographed by the latter in 9+/10 blue sharpie. Full framed dimensions of the display are 29x30". Full LOA from PSA/DNA. Auction LOA from James Spence Authentication. Third party shipping required.

    The hammer price for my Mantle card significantly exceeded my admittedly conservative estimations, and I couldn't be more pleased.
