The Authentic Experience
Well, it looks like Ebay is now attacking those who are exposing forgeries listed on their website.
Obviously Ebay does not like the fact that I am exposing the forgeries that are listed by their scam sellers.
First, photos of my Derek Jeter "2001 Fleer Monumental Moments" autograph card numbered "85/95."
This is a Fleer issued Derek Jeter autograph card.
Below is the email I received:
