I agree. Look at the left side of the check. Looks like a name was scratched off

Like i said.. even the photo is bunk. I bet the Cy young trophy is not good either. If this guy sold socks.. i would think they were fake.

Who's gonna get burned next? These were someone's personal checks, with erasures, fake stampings, cover ups and a bad Gehrig sig. East coast forger has been doing these for years (FM). @AskeBay time for your coffee and to get this crap off your site.

If you look at the enlargement that Chris posted you will see the bleed of the ink. That would not happen normally with a check. The surface of a check is hard and the ink will sit on the top of the paper with little absorption. When the integrity of the paper is compromised you will get that bleeding. That is what also happens when forgers buy old books to use the flyleafs to create fakes. The paper has broken down over time and if they use a fountain pen, the ink will show the bleeding or feathering. Most people do not own fountain pens, but if you want to understand the difference you can use a flair pen where the tip has softened or a sharpie. Write on a check with it and you will see how the ink sits on top. Then write on an index card and look at it under a magnifying glass or photographers loupe. You can see the bleeding/feathering of the ink on it.

For a pricing comparison, a Gehrig check sold privately recently for ~$45k.

That is not even close to being an authentic Gehrig check.
