    Description

    1936 Babe Ruth Signed Check. Some late Christmas shopping for the Babe, perhaps? The greatest name in baseball utilized the presented personal check to withdraw fifty dollars from his Chemical Bank account, filling out and signing the lower right in 9+/10 black fountain pen ink. But flip the check over and you'll find a second autograph from Ruth, still a 9/10 despite some adhesive staining from earlier presentation in a scrapbook, which leaves it affixed to the back of the screw-down holder in which it was stored. This staining on verso represents the entirety of condition issues, as the check is otherwise NRMT. Full LOA from James Spence Authentication.
