Before I continue, below are links showing hundreds of examples of forged Mickey Mantle baseballs, photos, etc. found on Ebay (the most dangerous place to buy autographs if you're a casual collector or impulse buyer).
Let's start with the forged Mickey Mantle bat listed by Ebay seller Eelvis.
Included in their photos is a photo of the ticket that Ebay seller Eelvis claims is only a photo of the ticket (his wife tossed the so-called original ticket).
Here's the forged Mantle bat and the "ticket."
Now here's another Ebay listing from Ebay seller Exclusiveuniques (I have posted a few threads on forgeries they've sold).
Here is their forged Mantle bat and the ticket that Ebay seller Exclusiveuniques claims is "their" original ticket.
Now click on the below image.
The hilarious part is that both of them are selling forged Mickey Mantle bats!!!
Only on Ebay!!!
Below are previous threads on Ebay seller Exclusiveuniques.
His other Ebay ID.
Of course if I have the 1cent piece of paper to accompany the bat, the signature must be real! How sad that people are so dishonest.
Kind of funny, Steve, that one of the two sellers of those forgeries "borrowed" a photo from the other seller of a forged Mantle bat.
That is kind of funny. Dishonest and stupid go hand in hand I guess.
