    Description

    1945 Babe Ruth Signed Check. Serious collectors are snapping up the last remaining available specimens of the coveted Ruth check, and few are selling, so we suspect that the supply will soon slow to a slow trickle. We'd suggest that you stake your claim now, and bid seriously on this "Feb. 5, 1945" specimen drawn on the Bambino's "The Chase National Bank" account. All ink is in Ruth's 10/10 black ink hand, and pays thirty-seven dollars to "Bert N. Lambs." Two vertical folds do little to detract from eye appeal, and the red bank stamping just brushes the "GH" initials, while the punch coding misses the signature altogether. Ruth's value can go nowhere but up, so your investment is as safe as if it were insured by the F.D.I.C. LOA from Steve Grad & Zach Rullo/ PSA DNA.
