He wouldn't have gone there to check into a room, but maybe an old friend had come to town and they were meeting for a meal or a couple drinks at the hotel restaurant/bar.

For that matter, he didn't necessarily have to sign it at the hotel - it could've been a chance encounter on the street and that was the only piece of paper the fan had available.

Auctionzip is just a marketing service used by thousands of auctioneers throughout the country. Saying everything you see on auctiozip is bogus is like saying ever seller on Ebay is a crook. It's just silly. Look at the reputation (or investigate it) of the seller in question, like this guy: https://www.auctionzip.com/Listings/3230184.html

Also Auctionzip has recently started offering a platform for auctioneers to sell online and/or simulcast, but auctionzip does not buy or sell items.

EDIT: This is in no way an endorsement of the Ruth in question, just making a point about the comments on the service auctionzip provides.

You are correct about that; they are merely a platform.

I did call them out years ago for the hundreds of forgeries that one of their auctioneers had listed.

As for the Babe Ruth, it is one of those autographs that I would want to examine in-person utilizing my ProScope.

I have encountered numerous Mantle, Jeter, etc. autographs via a photo that looked authentic from a distance, but once I magnified them using software, my opinion changed once I observed the speed, or lack of.

First of all, I am not authenticating the autograph in question what so ever.
Jimmie Reese, Babe Ruth's roomie on the NY Yankees, said he only roomed with Babe's luggage.
Babe was a notorious partier and a shagger of women according to all accounts in many biographies on Ruth that I have read.
FWIW, I certainly wouldn't use geography as a barometer of authenticity in this argument. Just my 2 cents.

I'll leave the authenticity question to folks on this board that are way more familiar with his sig than me.

Carry on my wayward sons....

One needs to look no further than the e in Babe to know this is no good.
