Here's another set of Mickey Mantle/Joe DiMaggio forgeries on a photo with a COA from GAI (Mike Baker) that sold on Ebay.
As we all know, GAI (bankrupt and out of business since 2009) "authenticated (cough, cough)" thousands of forgeries of Mickey Mantle, Joe DiMaggio, Ted Williams, etc., with Mike Baker's name on the COA.
All of those thousands upon thousands of Mickey Mantle, Joe DiMaggio, Ted Williams, Willie Mays, etc., forgeries certed by GAI before they went bankrupt will forever infect our autograph hobby.
These Mickey Mantle/Joe DiMaggio forgeries was listed and sold by Ebay seller babs-jsa-sales for $202.50.
If the buyer/seller of this garbage had done just a little bit of research, they wouldn't have purchased this crap.
If Ebay seller babs-jsa-sales had submitted their Mickey Mantle & Joe DiMaggio "autographs (cough, cough....forgeries)," JSA would have rejected them in a millisecond.
This is why sellers of forgeries list their garbage on Ebay; they know the wannabe autograph collectors will purchase their forgeries like the below Mickey Mantle & Joe DiMaggio forgeries sold by Ebay seller babs-jsa-sales for $202.50.

I think it's time for GA to do the same as GAI did in 2009
Dom, this crap will infect our autograph hobby forever.
I'm afraid you are right. Too many stupid buyers of this crap out there and nobody stopping it. Ebay really p***** me off by allowing and encouraging the sales of forgeries!
