"We all make mistakes. If you look at the price, it’s easy to assume that it was sold as an authentic Ruth signature."

"Wow -- every signature fake on this one?  I collect rock and roll and do some music items at Lelands from time to time.  Did Barry Halper forge 100's of fake autographs? "

Good Ruth?

Stumbled upon this Ruth signature up for auction and was wondering what people think.  I'm no Ruth expert, but I'm leery of the "R." Bears an uncanny resemblance to the forged Ruth on Barry Halper's infamous "500 HR Club" sheet.  Anyone seen a good Ruth that looks like this?See More

"I recently saw this very ball or one nearly identical online. I too do not think it authentic, though I had to look at it longer than most forgeries.  "
