    Description

    1941 Babe Ruth Signed Check. Joltin' Joe DiMaggio extended his historic hitting streak to thirty-nine games the day the Babe purchased a new car at the Long Island dealership "Bayers Auto Sales, Inc." with the presented check on June 27, 1941. The large sum is clearly the reason that this manner of check was utilized, rather than those imprinted with Ruth's personal information. All text is typed except for the legendary slugger's black fountain pen signature at lower right, which rates a magnificent 9+/10. Check exhibits bank stamping but no other issues of note. Full LOA from PSA/DNA. Auction LOA from James Spence Authentication.
