Default Pat Collins signed ball?

Here's another one for your viewing pleasure. Too good to be true?

For a second there I thought you were referring to the hilarious NBC4 Washington reporter with the snow stick. He too is Pat Collins. Oops. Please tell me I'm not the only one who briefly thought this!

Doubt it. Pat Collins died in 1960 in obscurity, which is why he is rare. The Babe Ruth League was not even a thing until the 1950's.

Case 12, almost everything you post--including this ball--is a forgery. And poor forgeries at that. They can be seen to be bad even without being familiar with the genuine signatures. They are slowly drawn, shaky, and too large, for starters.
It really is time you did some homework, and learn a bit about autographs.

My first thought when I saw the ball and slow signature and ink type was here's a C C special or as they are also affectionately known here as R C .

My apologies. I have studied since the 90's. I used to use Barry Halpers collection for exemplars before the internet. It's just not in my DNA I guess. I see I am taxing the forum with my questions, and certainly see the items when I am corrected (when like I found out my Cobb was fake due to the paraph. Before that I didn't know what a paraph was. Now I see it every time I look at a Cobb). I did think the Griffith might stand a chance. I tossed the Collins in for giggles to show the length forgers would go for something so rare and even rarely known by an average collector. I certainly appreciate your patience and advice. I will just observe for a while, and learn as I can. I will pipe in occasionally to request thoughts on things more significant to me. No worries. Casey

I don't mind looking at the mountains of forgeries you posses. It's very entertaining. You have the Clark W Griswald, Pat Collins the hip Hypnotist and Sauy Kuufux to go along with the fake stengel and the fake Randy Johnson with the 60K watch worth $2.50 Nice collection. All fake just like barry halpers collection. NBF. Nothing but fakes

How many? That is the question.

How come everyone is overlooking the authentic “Babe Ruth” autograph on that ball?

I don't know but that Stephen guy asked about 100s of fake items and no one seemed to get tired of responding to his silly fake item questions.
