If there’s a Holy Grail in the sports autograph world, it’s got to be a personal check with a Babe Ruth autograph, and that’s precisely what’s offered here, with the bonus signature of his daughter, Julia Ruth, who endorsed the check on the back. The legendary “G.H. Ruth” signature on this May 2, 1940, Chemical Bank check is as striking and elegant as the ones with the more familiar “Babe,” earning a BGS blessing as Authentic; the huge * ¼-by-3 ¼-inch check is a pristine match and is essentially Near-Mint to Mint. This is a simply spectacular artifact from the most revered player in Major League Baseball history, bolstered by the inclusion of a matching autograph from his daughter, Julia Ruth, who’s better known to several generations of collectors as Julia Ruth Stevens. For more than seven decades, she championed the cause of promoting and protecting the larger-than-life legacy of her father, participating in the licensing process for his name and image and appearing at countless events and promotions on her father’s behalf.
