Default Need the experts opinions on Ruth

First time for me over here on the auto side. I'm not an autograph collector but I had a guy send me these photos of a Ruth. I assume everything is fake anymore but thought I'd get some education. Would enjoy your input and thanks in advance!

To me it appears to be one of those printed balls the stitching appears to be new. The printing on the baseball seems too good and dark. Way too many of these around now to judge without holding it in your hand.

Inclined to agree. The signature looks ďokayĒ but without viewing it in person hard to tell. Also think the fading in the key areas of the signature is suspect. I wouldnít chance it.

Thanks guys for your input. Probably one of those Marino Special Editions Iím suspecting, lol. To me it looks like the discoloration is added as well.

Listen to what people are telling you. It is not a "Marino Special Edition."
The question is whether it is a printed reproduction of a genuinely signed Ruth ball.

Definitely agree. Although the signature is spot on, the laces are just so damn fresh and clean and new looking..... I know this sounds weird, but did you smell the ball? Does it smell new? No smell? Moldy? Believe it or not this may help.

Not in any way a Marino. Just curious why would you say that?

If you smell what The Rock is cooking. Then you might smell if it is real or not

Only because I just watched the recently posted video about him.

If itís live ink itís good, if not than itís a reproduction. Canít tell that from an image.

Would agree. The signature is spot on though. Just can't tell if it's real ink or a reproduction.
