Description



At Yankee Stadium on September 27, 1927, about 15,000 fans watched Ruth and Gehrig each belt HRs in the Bronx Bombers' 7-4 win over the A's. For the mighty Babe, it was HR #57 in his immortal record-breaking campaign—and it came off Lefty Grove, no less. Subsequently, this very check for $3,280 was paid out to the Athletics franchise for their percentage of the profits. It measures 9 x 3-3/8" and is typed on the reverse, "Share of receipts / Game 9/27." Ruppert and Barrow's signatures rate "8-9", and condition is EX with staining in one corner. Encapsulated as "Authentic" by PSA/DNA.
