Almost a work of art in itself, this 1945 bank check is all written in Babe Ruth's hand. That it was drawn from Chase National Bank on August 14, 1945 is not the central figure, nor is the dollar amount of $92.60. It is the splendid flowing black steel tip fountain pen ink and all the writing done in the Bambino's hand - including his "GH Ruth" signature - that jump from this 8.5x3" artifact. Signature in rates 8/10 with some creasing and small spots of tape on back to reinforce creases; still looks great and signature is unaffected by any of the minor imperfections.
