    1935 Babe Ruth Twice Signed Check, PSA/DNA Mint 9. Those following the memorabilia trends have certainly taken notice of the steep climb in value that Ruth checks have enjoyed over the past years, and there seems to be no end in sight. So we offer here one of the safest investments, a spectacular check presented by the Babe to a teller at the "Chemical Bank & Trust Company" for a withdrawal of fifty dollars, dated the same month that he announced his retirement from the game he loved, and that loved him. All ink remains as bold and perfect as the day Ruth applied it. Setting this specimen in a class by itself is an endorsing signature on the back (slight smear on the "H") for the cash withdrawal, taking the tally to two autographs from the Babe. There is a small hole about half an inch from Ruth's endorsement. Encapsulated by PSA/DNA, Mint 9. Full LOA from SGC Authentic.
