    Description

    1927 Babe Ruth & Christy Walsh Signed Check. "The Christy Walsh Syndicate" business check is signed by its proprietor at lower left and on the verso by the payee Babe Ruth, who signs in his typical "GH Ruth" check format. Both signatures present with 9+/10 boldness. It's noteworthy that the check dates to August 8, 1927, when the Babe was engaged in the most storied season in the history of both himself and the New York Yankees. The check directs the sizeable sum of $3,700 to Ruth's account, with a typed notation on verso indicating "On a/c Syndicate Royalty 1927 Account." Check exhibits original bank stamping which only inconsequentially brushes Ruth's endorsing signature, otherwise NRMT. Auction LOA from James Spence Authentication. Full LOA from PSA/DNA.
