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).
So when does a Mickey Mantle autographed photo sell for $41.00?
When it's an obvious forgery.
Why did it sell for only $41.00?
Because knowledgeable autograph collectors don't give crap like this a second look.
Look at this garbage. You would be hard-pressed to find a more laughable Mantle forgery.
Because Ebay is so heavily-populated with delusional autograph collectors and impulse buyers, more forgeries sell on Ebay every day than authentic autographs.
I will continue to expose Ebay forgeries; this crap continues to devalue the autograph collectors who own authentic autographs.
Here is that forged Mickey Mantle photo sold by Ebay sellerEntertainmentwired for a whopping $41.00.
