I don't know. What connection would Gehrig have with a bank in Herkimer, New York?That was about 250 miles from home for him.

Totally agree. All of his dogs look too good to be true.. and no carts. The photo of Ruth(no way it is an original type 1).

Signature is written very neatly and on the line. Rest of the check is sloppy. Does not appear to be same handwriting to me.
