Default Babe Ruth auto ball in auction

Anyone else want to opine on this? Ruth is the only autograph that I know and there is ZERO chance I would buy this ball. Anyone else have thoughts on this?

The a is too fat, the e is way too pointy, the b is off, the u is too linear. For starters... But mainly the e in Babe is way way off. So lets start there.

I have to agree. The whole signature looks labored and the be looks terrible. The e has no flair and the whole signature lacks speed and flow. It wouldnt surprise me if that ball was post 48 as well.

How would you know someone is 100% spot on unless you were there when something was signed. Please.

If you truly know Ruths autograph, this one is just off. Slight variances almost beginning to end.

I have to agree with Jason on this, Michael. No one can know whether I--or anyone else--is "spot on." All I can do is render an opinion based on experience. And I don't like this one.

Thanks David!!!! I am no fan of TPA's but I have never had a real issue with Beckett before. Why would this ball not throw up a red flag to them? Again David I have asked you a few times before buying a high dollar Yankee item or 2 and have always followed your advise on if I should purchase or not.
