The Authentic Experience

Autographed Photo Mickey Mantle DiMaggio Forgery Ebay Seller Angiedc2002 My Favorite Players COA

Here are a few Mickey Mantle, Joe DiMaggio, Ted Williams, etc., "Florida" forgeries found on Ebay.

All of the below Mantle, DiMaggio, etc., forgeries are listed by Ebay seller Angiedc2002.

These are the "Florida" forgeries that we've been exposing for years.

The people (like Ebay seller Angiedc2002) who buy this garbage know ZERO about autographs.  They purchase this crap at local auctions, estate sales, charity events, ATAuction,.com,, at super cheap prices with their only intention being to flip their forgeries on Ebay for a profit.

This crap always comes with worthless COAs from My Favorite Players, YMC Sports, Myst-O-Graph, Nicholas Burczyk, MFP Reborn, Autographed Legends, etc.

Here are the forgeries listed by Ebay seller Angiedc2002.

Here's a Ted Williams forgery listed by Ebay seller Angiedc2002 with a COA from GAI (Mike Baker).

As we all know, GAI (Mike Baker) certed thousands of Mantle, DiMaggio, Williams, etc., forgeries before they went bankrupt 2009.

These forgeries have infected our autograph hobby by the tens of thousands forever.

The main outlets for these forgeries are estate sales, charity events, local auctions,,, etc.

They are purchased by people with ZERO knowledge of autographs.  These same people help to infect our autograph hobby.

FRAUD.  These guys that put their names on these forgeries are committing FRAUD.

We are so tired of this stuff that it's ridiculous!!!!

This crap should have been stopped years ago!!!!

The Ebay sellers who list this crap always plead innocence, but every Ebay listing reads "Seller Assumes All Responsibility For This Listing."

They buy this garbage cheap and then look to flip their forgeries on Ebay for a profit. 

We will continue to expose the sellers who list and sell these forgeries.

It p***** me off everyday, when I see this crap. Ebay needs to do a better job with all these forgeries being sold there. And Chris your right, these sellers play dumb, but they know what their doing. Tom tresh is right, eBay buyers are idiots, when it comes to this

You're right, Darin, these sellers play dumb.

They buy a "Mantle" for $40.00 at a local auction or estate sale and they believe they purchased an authentic Mantle.

Yeah right....then they look to flip their forgeries on Ebay where there is a huge population of wannabe autograph collectors.
