    1934 Babe Ruth Double Signed Check, PSA DNA MINT 9. Just a few months from the start of his final Yankee campaign, the Babe drew one hundred dollars cash from his Chemical Bank account using the provided check. While Ruth checks are not an uncommon sight, it must be stressed that this one stands a good bit taller than the rest. The black fountain pen ink rates a bona fide 9/10, and the check has the "Babe Ruth" personalized text running vertically at left, always a popular attribute. But perhaps most notably, a second "G.H. Ruth" autograph appears as an endorsing signature on verso, doubling the appeal. Bank punch coding and a vertical center crease remain clear of both autographs. A slight brush of Ruth's hand to the wet ink on verso is the only detraction, and a very minor one at that. Full Grading LOA from PSA/DNA MINT 9. Auction LOA from James Spence Authentication.
