Default HELP NEEDED: Ty Cobb Auto Real/Fake? Thoughts?

Hi fellas,

It has been awhile since I have posted... I just recently started collecting again and I stumbled across a few autographs. I don't normally buy autographs but this Ty Cobb auto really intrigued me at this estate sale.

Before I pull the trigger, may I ask for some opinions in regards to its authenticity? I have bought fake autographs in the past before and it hurt... It still hurts, but time does heal all wounds eventually.

So again, please write any opinions/concerns you may have!

Thank you and I appreciate your help,

Colby

P.S. Please let me know if this is the appropriate thread to be posting about this type of thing.

It just looks off but let some others chime in with their thoughts as well.

Default I'm a gambling man...

Well I am going to go back to the estate sale on Tuesday and probably buy it. I will take the gamble I suppose. But if anyone has any serious objections, then please let me know!

You may get a lot of casual replies here because a lot of people combat or like to opine when not really advanced knowledge...but that is not a Cobb autograph you would want to buy. DO NOT GO TO AN ESTATE SALE AND BUY IT. I do not believe it is authentic and it will not pass TPA in my opinion. Tons of things wrong with it.

Sorry if my knowledge is not as "advanced" as yours but even without being a self proclaimed expert as yourself, my eyes could spot that this was not a good Cobb autograph. Please feel free to keep us without the "advanced knowledge" in our place.

Default Take It Easy Fellas...

I respect all of your opinions. I'm not trying to say one opinion is better than another. I was just curious to what everyone's thoughts were. I am no expert in autographs.

So far, there has been a split between positive/negative opinions in regards to the Cobb's authenticity. I truly appreciate everyone's help.

For future reference, can someone tell me what is specifically wrong with the Cobb autograph?

I am not even certain that it's signed and may be a reproduction of some kind, it's too hard to tell from the image. Autograph itself aside, the look of the ink doesn't fit with the look/condition of the photo. If you are specifically looking for a Cobb autograph, keep your eyes out here on Net54 for one. Someone typically has one to sell at least once a month or so and there are a lot of good, trusted sellers here.
