An autographed Babe Ruth baseball for $100? Seems legit

Sunday August 24th, 2014

For a mere $100, you could be the proud owner of a baseball autographed by Babe Ruth -- or at least someone with the initials B and R. What a deal!

Listen, I'm an expert in scams, and this is definitely not a scam. Sure, the ball has an imprint dating it to 1998, but who cares? Ever heard of a little something called a time machine?

If you wind up being the lucky buyer, just make sure to keep it in a protective case and not hit it into the backyard of the Beast (unless you want to have a series of adventures while attempting to recover it, creating lifelong friendships and memories, that is).
