Default Ty Cobb auto - Real or Fake, Need help!

Hello everyone,

First post on here as I just signed up. I had recently purchased this Cobb autograph from a local auction that I attended. Everything about it seemed legit but after reading about all the forgeries out there I am a little gun shy. Not sure if I should send it in to PSA or JSA to get authenticated. I want to thank everyone in advance for any and all help on this one. I am trying to get a few Detroit Tigers vintage autographs for my personal collection.

Thanks,
Casey

Welcome to the board, first off.

Looks pretty good to me, but I shall defer to Richard, David, Chris or other experts for a more qualified opinion.

Looks pretty nice, I vote PSA mostly because of the amount of money they spend on advertising.

Casey- looks nice, but the concerns i see is the letter t in Ty. also, the letter o is double inverted, you don't see that much. hope it checks out for you. if i had to vote, i would say it probably would not pass.

Casey. Welcome to the board and good luck in your pursuit of Detroit Tigers autographs. I would send the signature into JSA for authentication because it is Cobb and,yes, due to the value of his signature, forgeries do exist.

You need to send it to someone to find out if it is REAL. not to get a cert. You didn't buy the cert, you bought the autograph.

You don't need to send it to anyone to find out if it's real.
Richard was kind enough to provide his professional opinion. JSA or PSA can do no better.
(Unless, of course, you really want to piss away $250 for absolutely no reason.)

David,
I don't believe that Richard did give his opinion. He merely commented on the fact that Scott's joke was a "good one" FWIW....

Scott, you are correct.
The owner of this autograph called me before posting it here. He asked for my authentication prices, commented about how my prices were so much more reasonable than the ABC guys, and then put it here.
