Will anyone provide their personal opinion on the authenticity of this bat??

The signature looks really good, but it definitely seems too good to be true.

If it's too good, it always is. Babe Ruth signed bats are VERY RARE and usually end up in a catalog and usually sell for $20K+. Now if I could get a Babe Ruth bat for $2K and sell it for $20K, would that simply be too easy of a way to make a living? Plus, why are people selling high priced items on Yahoo and not eBay?

Used a different link then the one above and was able to view the photos.

I have seen a lot of Ruth signatures, good and bad, and I would not personally buy the bat.

No photos in the auction. Can you post some here?

Would not even think about buying without a photo of the bat / signature.
