Good Ruth?

Started this discussion. Last reply by Steve Jun 11. 1 Reply

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

Mantle sig

Just encountered a bunch of interesting signatures on ebay by seller tmdcards.  By "interesting," I mean they appear to have a lot of authentic sigs from lesser-known players.  Then I saw this Mantle.  Anybody care to weigh in on its authenticity?  It's authenticated by Global.  I'm unfamiliar.  Thanks!…See More
