1933 Babe Ruth Sports King Or Is It?
On my weekly search of various sports cards I found that the seller eastcoastshark had a 1933 Babe Ruth Sports King. In the sellers description he states I bought this card from a guy who was hard up for money and I do not know anything else about the card.
BUT What's This?
That's right eastcoastshark purchased a 1933 Babe Ruth Sports King card that the seller clearly stated This auction is for an old reprint.
All anyone has to do is look at the above along with the scans from both auctions and it's pretty clear what's going on here. Clear for everyone except eBay as they at this time with all of the above evidence are still allowing this auction to continue.
Also eastcoastshark has purhased a 1956 Topps Mickey Mantle #135 Reprint and a 1954 Topps Henry Aaron #128 Reprint from the NARU'ed seller efigures AKA erniefigures. So be forewarned that these cards will probably be sold by this seller as originals with the statement Due to the fact that this card has not been graded by a third party it is being sold as-is.
On a side note there was an auction yesterday (April 13th) for a supposed 1930's signed Yankees baseball with Babe Ruth. It looked as though someones 3 year old had signed it in purple crayon and was, like the above clearly a fake. The ball was pulled in a little over an hour but yet you can find auctions where sellers are clearly selling counterfeits and they are allowed to continue until some unknowing person buys them.
In closing it is up to you as the buyer to weigh the evidence that's provided and decide
REAL OR NOT?
