I found this Babe Ruth signed photo that sold on eBay recently for $2045. It had one bid. The autograph was not authenticated. Do think it's authentic. And do you believe the seller's story? I am not making any accusations. Just want to know what the people here think. So here's the seller's account:
"This is an Original autographed Babe Ruth 8x10 photograph.
This photograph has been in my family since it was signed in 1948. My Great-Grandmother ( Hannah Gesetz) was admitted in Sloan-Kettering Hospital at the same time The Babe was hospitalized with throat Cancer. Hannah had breast cancer and she lived until 1956. My family's last name was Gesetz but because of our Jewish heritage it was changed to its current more Americanized name. I will be happy to provide my last name only to those who are genuinely interested in purchasing this photograph.
My grandmother, Sally who passed away in November 2000 was present when Babe came into the hospital room to sign the photo. She was approximately 18 yrs old and later married my grandfather Sidney who was Hannah's son. Sidney died in 1987.
My grandmother told me shortly before she passed that The Babe came to Hannah's room with this photo and signed it for her. We believe she was in the hospital in July or August 1948 from my Grandmothers best recollection. This photograph was on display in the Babe Ruth Museum in 1995-1996. I had the plaque from the display but it has been lost.
Please contact me with any reasonable offers. I am selling this to provide funds for my children's college. No international shipping."
