The Authentic Experience
Steve Grad, autograph expert for PSA/DNA, uses different types of high-tech tools to help expose a Jesse Burkett autograph forgery. Burkett single-signed baseballs are one of the more valuable autographed items in the hobby, giving unscrupulous individuals the incentive to forge his desirable signature. In this case, Grad shows the viewers one technique used to alter baseballs, in hopes of tricking an unsuspecting buyer - re-painting. In this video, Grad exposes the lengths some people will go to for a buck and illustrates why credible 3rd-party authentication is so important.
