Default Fake Babe Ruth Autograph on ebay sold for $405.00

So this ebayer sold this babe ruth, you be the judge!

However, if any of the buyers bothered to check out this guy's sold items this is what they would have found this;

Am I crazy or was the first one real?

They always use an older guy or a grandfather got a Ruth autograph when these fakes are listed. Or it's been in the family for 80 years. Never fails. Maybe alot of shill bidding going on here. Can't believe the idiot that bought it thinks he got a good deal.

Not only is he a seller of forgeries but his ads are written by the same 10 year old who penned the forgeries:
"You are bidding on a Babe Ruth Autograph. It's being sold for a 89 year old elderly man who has no idea what a computer is. There is no COA Or LOA that will A company this signature Make sure you're a close friend or you do a lot of business with 3rd party authentication before bidding so you're chances are better..thanks."

just by the wording in the description should be a huge red flag that the seller is trying to get out of any liability if a TPA deems it fake.

If you are stupid enough to fall for that you basically deserve to get ripped off. Sorry.

If you look at the bidding history of the other fake Ruth autographs, the same bidders were bidding. I would guess this is a case of shill bidding.
