The originals are very cool, but somewhat hard to find. Reprints like these seem to be popping up frequently. :(

Your correct, blatant fakes. Bob McCann recently sold 1 of the only originals I have seen in years. I think it brought $50. Dan.

Especially since they're popping up in PSA holders.

Generally speaking you can tell by the "graininess" of the images on the cards....here are a few real ones......btw, there are about 3 different varieties of each card, if I am not mistaking...

I've known about two different types of the authentic Ruth Candy cards. One with high quality printing on white stock, & the other with poorer quality printing on darker crappier stock. Possible the 3rd variation is the lesser style with a blank back. Here's a link to a past REA auction with some good info.

Did the autographed baseballs have any distinguishing marks that it was from Geo. H. Ruth candy?
