GINSBURG, Ruth Bader (March 15, 1933- ) American justice, appointed by President Bill Clinton to be Associate Justice U.S. Supreme Court.  She took the Oath of Office on August 10, 1993.  Typed letter signed on the letterhead of Supreme Court of the United States, Chambers of Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg. November 16, 2007 to Stephen Koschal. Justice Ginsburg writes: “Thanks for alerting me to the one-cent check bearing a signature that certainly looks like mine.  Similar reports caused me, some months ago, to decline to provide signatures in response to mail requests. With appreciation, and best wishes for the progress of your book.” Signed in full “Ruth Bader Ginsburg.”
It is apparent that Ginsburg’s autograph was being abused. An autograph dealer created a mock souvenir check for one cent. The check listed her name and address and apparently her signature was printed on the check. This check appeared for sale at a New England auction house in February 2007. Obviously, this is one of the reasons why Justice Ginsburg’s autographs are so scarce and desirable. Supreme Court cards signed by Justice Ginsburg are increasingly in demand with some selling recently north of $2,500. Typed letters are much scarcer and usually have less content.  For 13 years Justice Ginsburg has not responded to autograph requests.  In excellent condition with original envelope and a copy of the one-cent check with the auction house description which upset Justice Ginsburg.....
...........$1,850.00
