Default Babe Ruth Ball Rejected by Heritage

Nothing new here, just thought I'd share my story. I brought about 100 signed items to Heritage offices in NYC about 2 years ago. All of the items were from the estate of a family member. Many of the items did not pass initial inspection, as to be expected. A few more failed PSA authentication. Almost every one had junk or no COA. There were many nice items that did pass and were sold.

This Ruth Ball had both a Match and GAI LOA.

2002 Match LOA by Christopher Schutte

2003 LOA & COA from GAI

Sadly, you can see he paid $10,995 for the ball.

I've only restarted collecting cards recently (after selling through his collection) and I am sure you all have dealt with and discussed this issue to death. Just a shame.

I let the kids play with most of the cheap junk signed balls but for some reason I can't part ways with the Ruth (or Cobb or Ott) even though they are likely not real. Knowing he paid $11,000 probably has a lot to do with it.
