Default E121 Babe Ruth...Real of fake?

This one just popped on eBay and the seller has some another Ruth and a Cobb.

It's an E122, not an E121.

No opinion as to authenticity.

ETA looks like Pete beat me to it.

Gut tells me 100% fake. Just seems very suspicious.

A look at the bid history of the five previous cards the seller has sold should be all you need to see to stay far away from this auction. All five auctions had the same "0" feedback bidder taking part. In three of the auctions, the 0 feedback bidder was the underbidder. In one of the auctions, the 0 bidder "won" the auction. The 0 feedback bidder has a 94 percent bid rate with that seller.

It should also give reason for pause when a low feedback seller is suddenly selling cards of Ruth, Cobb, Hornsby (that, of course, would be "Rodgers" Hornsby), Wheat.

The panel that has Ruth's name, etc. should be tinted gray. Fake in the most fake-like way.

I am interested in everyone's thoughts as I know very little about b&w E cards, but the name box is gray, it is just a poor photo.

Appears fake and has brand new scotch tape across the middle, which I more than highly doubt anyone today would apply to a real version.

If you zoom in, the bottom lettering has a dox matrix, where the real lettering should be solid.
