Default I'm flattered

Took a scan of a photo I own that I've never seen anywhere else, cropped it, added a crappy fake signature, and then called it a card. Flattered I guess.

Go for it. Don't often get a nice Ruth autographed card for under $10.

Nice set of forgeries sold by that seller (a "Florida" set of forgeries).

Ya know, I'm starting to feel less and less sorry for folks ripped off by these clowns. So much information available at your fingertips now as opposed to 30 years ago. If you really think you are going to get a rare Babe Ruth collectible for $7, well maybe you deserve to lose your money.

Yeesh. Well, at least his forgery looks better than Benny's did in 'The Sandlot.' ;D

You know what's funny? Say way back when the Babe was about to sign something and he was drunk, not in the mood, or just wanted to be an ass, so he just decided to sign it 'poorly,' where it didn't look like anything else he had ever signed. And now somebody is trying to sell that very signature. Hey, it could happen.
