Default Ruth Autographed Ball Real?

Might be able to pick up this ball, but this is not my area of expertise, and there are a lot of fakes. Thoughts? Real or fake?

Maybe some better pictures without the glare. Also pics of the stampings on the ball will help.

Sorry, it's the only photo they gave me. If I get to see it in person, what should I look for?

I would not buy that baseball, but that's just me.

I'll post better pics of the Ruth ball if I can get them. The same seller has these items.

I knew someone would know if the Mantles were good or not. I tend to have major doubts about the Ruth if the Mantles aren't good. However, I did think the Koufax looked OK.

I'm not a Koufax guy so can't say if it's real or not...but...what many sellers do is "sprinkle" a group of balls with a few lower priced authentic ones. That way they will give the impression the whole group is real. Ebay is loaded with sellers like this. One seller a while back had individual signed baseballs of 11 members of the Home Run club...He was selling the whole group of 11 balls in the one auction. The most expensive ball in the group would be the Mantle. And of course the Mantle was bad.
