I know the seller states he doesn't know if they are authentic or not but selling the holder and getting the card for free?:rolleyes:

Check his other auctions he's also selling a Goudey Ruth and Gehrig:confused:

Not sure if it's the lighting in the pic, but that back look's like it has black ink, not green. Think I'll stick with my own $.69 screw down.

The Front of the Cobb looks a bit strange in the upper Corners were the red background ends. For the red to be gone in the corner away from the Black border... Just doesn't look right...

Ralph, I see what you mean about the back possibly being black ink...

i think it looks fine. it was probably taped from the top 2 corners and when the tape was removed...this is the result.

somethings fishy with the way he listed them...

7 day return may be tough to do too, It takes 7 just to get to me in Hawaii

plus Id never bid on any of them for the simple fact that there is like 35 bids on the Ruth with over 5-1/2 days left

the R319s back look strange too, the lighting is off or the backs arent the same green color

any honest seller will ALWAYS stand behind is auctions and give far more days return.... or if smart... actually find out if they are authentic before listing.

Id say scam of some type..., the cards are not your normal reprint though, they may be homemade .... the creases on the T206 look faked especially the top left corner.

Personally wouldn't bid.

Look at the name/team caption. The Cobb and Detroit are too close together.

Frank's right. Looks like a reprint style I've never seen before. Don't like the toning at the top and it just doesn't look right to me.

Why would anyone question this seller? I mean, just because they have sold reprint cards of Hank Aaron and Mickey Mantle in the past month and have bought reprint cards of Babe Ruth and Lou Gehrig doesn't mean anything, does it? :)

The card looks fake to me and the listing looks very fishy.

I wrote him last night, Im sure others prob did too.

He pulled them I see (even the Ruth and Gehrig)

I never read their replies and actually told him "no need to reply" but he did write me 7 replies in less than a 1/2 hour lol

I shouldnt write these guys when I have active auctions, one day they will sabotage my listings :(

good job on these fakes to all :)
