    Description

    1940's-50's Babe Ruth, Mickey Mantle & George Weiss Signed One Dollar Bill, PSA/DNA NM+ 7.5. Finding an item signed by both Babe Ruth and Mickey Mantle is a needle in a haystack. Although Mantle signed everything his entire life, people rarely thought to include him on an older Ruth-signed item, but with both players leading the squad during their careers, items like this are now quite sought after. The offered item is a One Dollar Bill silver certificate dated 1935. The 1935 notes were actually printed continually through 1965 with the same 1935 date. The years can be distinguished by the series letter to the right of the date. A series "A" note such as this was printed through 1945.

    Babe Ruth penned his signature in vintage fountain pen, and looks much stronger than the 7/10 grade given to it by PSA/DNA. Underneath Ruth is a signature of George Weiss, former GM for the Yankees during their fantastic Casey Stengel years. Weiss has been graded individually as a 6/10. Finally, Mantle added his signature in bold 9/10 black sharpie, with slight feathering leading to a 9/10 grade. The combined grade comes to a 7.5/10.

    Chances like this rarely come up, but a true Yankees fan will see the incredible value in having three crucial Yankee Hall of Famers on the same vintage item. The bill itself shows significant wear with creases and small tears throughout, but this does nothing to depreciate the aesthetics or value of the item. Encapsulated by PSA/DNA, NM+ 7.5. Full LOA from PSA/DNA. Auction LOA from James Spence Authentication.
