    Description

    1938 Babe Ruth Signed Check. Just over two years after the Babe hung up his thunderous bat, he filled out and signed this personal check drawn on The Chemical Bank & Trust Company account he kept just a couple blocks from his Upper West Side Manhattan home. Ruth checks remain a blue chip stock of the hobby and this one is particularly appealing for a number of reasons. Firstly, the check is a desired oversized format. Secondly, it offers his printed name at the far left, unlike a good percentage of others. And finally, the bank's punch coding remains well clear of the essential "GH Ruth" signature at lower right, which appears large and prominent in 7.5/10 steel-tip fountain pen. In short, this is an investment you can take to the bank. Full LOA from PSA/DNA.
