    Description

    1927 Babe Ruth & Christy Walsh Signed Check--Two Ruth Signatures. Two Babe Ruth signatures for the price of one, and the second a rare and highly desirable variation. Of course we've all seen the typical "GH Ruth" format which accompanies the vast majority of Ruth checks, but the "Geo. H. Babe Ruth" style which follows it on verso is as rare as a Bambino bunt. Each serves to endorse the check issued by The Christy Walsh Syndicate, payable for $4654.48, and signed in 10/10 ink by its proprietor. The Ruth autographs are equally strong. Bank punch coding intersects the second Ruth autograph, but to little detriment. Otherwise there are no issues bearing mention. Auction LOA from James Spence Authentication. Full LOA from PSA/DNA.
