Default More Ruth Candy Card Reprints

The originals are very cool, but somewhat hard to find. Reprints like these seem to be popping up frequently.

Your correct, blatant fakes. Bob McCann recently sold 1 of the only originals I have seen in years. I think it brought $50. Dan.

Especially since they're popping up in PSA holders.

Default crappy fakes

Generally speaking you can tell by the "graininess" of the images on the cards....here are a few real ones......btw, there are about 3 different varieties of each card, if I am not mistaking...

I've known about two different types of the authentic Ruth Candy cards. One with high quality printing on white stock, & the other with poorer quality printing on darker crappier stock. Possible the 3rd variation is the lesser style with a blank back. Here's a link to a past REA auction with some good info.

Did the autographed baseballs have any distinguishing marks that it was from Geo. H. Ruth candy?
