    Description

    1940 Babe Ruth Signed Deposit Slip. Attention Ruth collectors! As the value of the Babe's personal checks continues to climb as high as a Bambino blast, we offer a companion piece never before seen on the collecting landscape. Direct from Ruth's favored "Chemical Bank Trust Company" comes this 3.5x5.5" deposit slip, placing $2000 in the definitive slugger's account on May 6, 1940. All black fountain pen ink, including the Babe's preferred "G.H. Ruth" banking autograph, is an undeniable 10/10 in quality. The slip was once folded into quarters, but the resulting fold lines offer no distraction and do not affect the tremendous quality of the Babe's writing in the slightest. Given the upward trend in the Ruth autograph market, it's clear that the collector who deposits this piece in his collection will soon be laughing all the way to the bank. LOA from Steve Grad & Zach Rullo/ PSA DNA.
