Here's another beauty I discovered on Ebay.
It's a George H. Ruth signed Stock Transfer Certificate. It's "authenticated" by Drew Max, who calls himself a Forensic Document Examiner (FDE). He has appeared numerous times on the Pawn Stars reality show.
Maybe Mr. Max can explain to me why he "authenticated" the below piece? It's been over a decade since Operation Bullpen and according to the 2007 SCD interview with Drew Max, Mr. Max claimed that he was taken on an tour of the FBI warehouse with Tim Fitzsimmons to photograph the various forgeries that came out of Operation Bullpen. Mr. Max also said "It was very nice that the FBI was able to help our library like that" when speaking in reference to his "fake autograph exemplar library."
So you mean to tell me that approximately 12 years following Operation Bullpen, that Drew Max, FDE, is still authenticating items like the George H. Ruth shown below? According to the Drew Max COA, the below George H. Ruth signature was certified just recently on November 5, 2011.
