Default I need help with the authenticity of these

A lady called my store about a lot of early 1900s cards that her grandfather owned before he passed away, and I am looking for some answers as to their authenticity, if they're fakes, etc.

She sent me pictures via text and email, and there's about 75 or so Goudeys, about 80-100 T200s and some others. In all, it's about 200 cards total from the early 1900s (pre-war). I'm scheduled to meet with her later this week to see them in person, hold and feel them and just get an idea of what we're dealing with.

Just wanted thoughts as to what people thought about them being real or fake.

Thanks.

See my post on the post-war side...these are all fake. Please make sure to out the seller so that others are not deceived! I will venture to guess that this is a craigslist scammer.

Thanks for the posts guys. But give me some reasons. I'd like to tell her that they're fake. No, they're not a craiglist find. It's a lady that called my store today. I'd like to explain to her what the deal is and why I think they're fake.

Wrong paper, wrong ink. Corners have all been uniformly rounded. Plus it's pretty unlikely she would randomly have 5 of the biggest cards in the hobby. Occam's razor.

As others have said, they are all fake. For the Ruth Red Sox card (the first one you have), take a look at this page to see why it's a fake: Link.

For the other cards, the Playball looks took white, the Joe Jax Cracker Jack card stock looks too thick, for the Goudey Ruth, the colors look wrong on the front (e.g., you should see different levels of shading).

Typically, if you have one fake, then all the others are very suspect. If someone found some undiscovered cards that they had for many years, and they are all top rated HOFers worth a lot of money, and there are no commons, then you have to be very careful as typically people should have genuine commons also.

Default commons

It's funny that these scammers never have any commons. Only Babe, Cobb, etc.
