"Thank you, James. I despise those so-called "Forensic Authenticators" who have literally certed tens of thousands of forgeries."

Lawrence Zelikoff replied to cburt's discussion I NEED HELP! Is Sportsmemorabilia.com Legit?
"You know, you're right. I've had this picture for more than 50 years and never looked at it close enough to see just how far off it really is from ones that have been authenticated. It's not even close. At least I didn't pay for…"

"Christopher Williams, that is exactly what those leeches do. I occasionally go to their website just for laughs to see how much they've marked a legitimate seller's price. Sportsmemorabilia.com listed a Star War item I was looking at on…"

"that one directly above is a joke.  for someone that studies autographs, just looking at a handful of PSA, JSA, BAS or SGC certed Mantle's, one would see the obvious differences.  As Steve Z states, the one that Christopher presented…"

"The Mantle is a cookie-cutter known forgery style produced in the many thousands. It has a distinct look, but explaining it is not as easy as it may seem. I wrote this blog post back in 2012, but I think it applies here. Hopefully it helps:"

"Lawrence,  Are you talking about this Mickey Mantle? If so, I may be able to answer your question. But I'm nowhere near as good as Chris and many others here on Mantle autographs: There are a lot of signs in this one that say it's…"

"My "eye" gives it away to me. If you look at enough authentic Mantle autographs and and a number of Mantle forgeries, your eye will differentiate. It doesn't happen overnight."

Lawrence Zelikoff replied to cburt's discussion I NEED HELP! Is Sportsmemorabilia.com Legit?
"But you can't tell me what gives it away to you. If you're an expert you should be able to give someone a clue. Never mind. I get the picture here."
