I am need of some real honest opinions! I bought this Babe Ruth card,I was told it is the real
1916 M101-5 Blank Back Babe Ruth Rookie #151.
I spent more than I can afford on this. I have 3 kids and I took a big gamble to try to do something to make a future for my children,I am very afraid that I made a huge mistake and was ripped off. I have done so much reading on this card and it looks legit. But I am not a professional grader. I am just a mother of 3. Please someone can you tell me what you think. Or what I should do. Thank you so much for your time.

Scan the card with a good scanner
Upload to Photobucket.com
Once uploaded you can copy out the URL from the Photobucket page
Paste the url into your post on SGC Board

Done

Just send the card to me and I will tell you :-)

Seriously, yes, just like Mudhen stated. If you dont have photobucket, sign up, its free and you can use for pictures of your kids and family/friends.

Put a scan up for sure, that card has many reprints so your concern is very real. Feel free to email me a scan and I can post it up also.

There are a couple things I dont like with it- The corners all seem too uniform, most old card with have worn corners all a bit different. The shading seems to be too dark, meaning the detail seems off, last year I purchased an M101-5 Cobb that looked good but once I got it in hand the shading was the tip off it was a reprint, your Ruth looks similar. Also does not appear to have a glossy finish on the front. Those are my red flags.

I am not expert enough to say for sure without it in hand but I do not feel its real. Return it if you can, if not then get the police involved quick, many times if its a scam they will return your money to avoid the arrest. I also saw a thread on Net54 about a crime gang ripping off people, might be worth a read in case its the same group and they were selling expensive cards.

Good luck and I hope things work out

Here are the scans of the card in question-


Here is a real one that just sold for over 50k in Legendary-

I was going to say the same thing about the corners.
I am not an expert, but I agree with everything SMT said.

If I had to guess by those pics, I would say fake.

Wow that is so bad! I spent so much money I didn't have on this. And another item through them. Makes me sick to my stomach! I was trying to do something that could help me and my kids build a future and thought this was the golden ticket. Now I am out money that I didn't have to blow. I am so upset that people do this. I asked them if it was an legit and they said yes. I got my kids so excited telling them this is our chance to get ahead! How can people be so cruel? Thank you for your input. I now have to figure out how I handle this. They already took the money out of my bank for both items. Thank you for your time. Sorry for venting on here but this is a nightmare!
