    1946 Babe Ruth Double Signed Check. While any Ruth check is worthy of tremendous collecting interest, the rare dual-signed example definitely does far more than double the appeal. Here we present a top specimen from that scarce supply, a "June 11 1946" personal check on Ruth's "The Chase National Bank" account made out to fifty dollars cash. He signs off at lower right, and then endorses the check with the same "G.H. Ruth" autograph on verso. PSA/DNA has authenticated and graded each of the two signatures, awarding the first a score of Mint 9 and the second NM-MT 8. Each remains entirely clear of the bank's punch coding. The check is encapsulated by PSA/DNA for protection and unquestioned authenticity. LOA from James Spence Authentication.
