That's not Babe Ruth's autograph. It's Baby Ruth's autograph.

I will never forget that my then-11 year old brother swindled me out of the KGJ Donruss rookie card (I was 9 and had no clue who he was other than being Big Griff's kid).

If it only says "BR"...does that mean it may have been autographed by, say, Barney Rubble?
