Personal check, dated June 21, 1941, signed by Babe Ruth. PSA/DNA has encapsulated the check and graded the signature NM-MT 8. The check, drawn on the Chemical Bank & Trust Company of New York, is made out to "C.G. Gunther's Sons" in the amount of $131.00. Signed "G. H. Ruth" in black fountain pen along the base. Ruth's preprinted name appears vertically on the left border. A stamped endorsement appears on the reverse. Babe Ruth personal checks have long been a favorite of autograph collectors due to their inherent authenticity and the fact that Ruth’s signature is always well executed. The check (8.25 x 3 inches), which has normal bank cancellation stamps and holes, displays a vertical fold, and a tiny chip in the upper left corner. In Very Good condition overall. Reserve $1,000.
