Default This "Feel-Good" Babe Ruth Signed Ball Story is not going to end well.

Who's going to tell them?

Sad, but odd question guys, do you think sometime Drew ever gets one right? And yes, someone needs to tell them.

It's never a question of does someone ever get it right, because everyone has a 50-50 shot, instead the question should be is someone shilling for someone knowing the item is bad and saying it's good.

Is this the new scam? Get a crappy cert on a fake high-end auto in order to donate it to charity and take a tax deduction?

I just e-mailed the auction house, not that it will do anything. I would go to the auction myself since it is in my backyard, but will be out of town.

Do you think if a bunch of people called there that it might do some good.

It might do something, some members here have had success in having items removed from auctions.
I commend those who are willing to do something to stop the flood of forgeries.
Sitting on your hands here, and posting comments on a thread, just won't really help this hobby with its huge problems.
