    Interesting unauthenticated Ruth auto auction

    Great feedback and seems like he's fairly sure it's legit...seems like a risk.

    Translation: PSA and JSA rejected it.

    The thing is, even though he says NO RETURNS, there is absolutely no risk buying this. It is illegal/against ebay policy to sell counterfeit signatures. So if a reputable third party deems it not genuine, ebay will facilitate the return on it. [you end up losing the PSA/DNA fees, and nothing else] I've had to do it with several different signatures recently. One thing about ebay (which I don't necessarily love as a seller) the buyer is always UBER-protected.

    Based on his description I wouldn't touch it. I am sure these companies get it wrong more than people think, but No thank you.

    He has a 2nd one.

    Not an expert by any means but the 2nd looks like a stamp??



    EDIT I didnt read the description

    The edges of the signature seem to point to that??

    Agreed. That amount of feedback would make me not even want to take the chance on something like this...

    Did you look at his other listings? Tons of replica, reprint & fake Ruth signatures. Reprint Mantle and Ruth cards galore. I'd have to say clear. Anyone who's that involved with this type of memorabilia would have it authenticated. And anyone with money to afford such an item should find a seller willing to get it authenticated first.

    This guy is a crook. All he has is forgeries listed as reprints. So, if a forgery is a maybe he can sell it as it might be real. I would never touch this type of merchandise. All this guy does is try to cover his arse. You can tell it is shady by all the steps he takes to do it!

    "I purchased this as authentic and it will be sold as such"

    Basically because he screwed up and he's trying to make someone else pay the price because he knows he got hosed.

    I love the fact that almost any autograph comes with a certificate of authenticity from some jerkstore authenticator but this one specifically says comes with no authentication. It's not impossible that it's real but the guy isn't doing himself many favors if he believes it is.

    A couple of people will be unhappy shortly...seems like seasoned collectors are staying away.
