    1927 Babe Ruth & Christy Walsh Signed Check--Two Ruth Signatures. There are so many great things about this check it's tough to decide where to start. Let's begin with the date, December 6th, 1927, still during the calendar year of the greatest season in Ruth's career, and in Yankees history. Next we'll address the rare "George H. Ruth" signature on the front of the check, a format almost never seen and, hence, intensely desirable. It rates a 9+/10 beside Walsh's equally strong offering. Flip the check, made payable for $3,000 to Ruth's Bank of Manhattan account, and the more familiar Ruth check autograph format appears (the "GH Ruth" style) in equally bold ink. The bank's punch coding intersects the autograph on verso but the rarer model on front is unaffected. Otherwise the check finds no faults worthy of mention. Truly one of the most desirable Ruth checks on earth. Auction LOA from James Spence Authentication. Full LOA from PSA/DNA.
