Examples Of Mickey Mantle Forgeries (Autographed Baseball, Photo, Etc.) Sold/Listed On Ebay Part 1

Here in this thread and future threads (this is only Part 1), I am going to show various examples of Mickey Mantle forgeries listed and sold on Ebay.

In my opinion, forgeries are at an all-time high on Ebay and other venues.

The main reason that forgeries are at an all-time high is because they are an easy sell, especially on Ebay.

As most of us here know, forgeries are meant to have the appearance of looking authentic, and of the 100% of people that purchase autographs, only 20% are the true hobby; the other 80% are the naive and impulse buyers.

People think that because an autograph is on Ebay, that it must be authentic.

In my opinion, Ebay is the most dangerous place to buy an autograph if you're not knowledgeable about autographs. 

Sellers of forgeries know that the 80% will bid and purchase their forgeries.   Throw in a few lies, print an impressive COA and it's an easy sell for the sellers of forgeries.

Those 80% who purchase forgeries, have no idea what they are looking at.  A good example is the seller who lists a forgery with a Steiner Sports COA.  The buyer is looking at the COA and when it comes to the autograph (the forgery) they don't have a clue as to what they are looking at.

Selling forgeries on Ebay is easy, because as we all know, Ebay does not care, and that's why fraud is so rampant on Ebay.

I will be posting similar threads on Joe DiMaggio and Derek Jeter forgeries.

I will also have a thread solely dedicated to John House, CEO of AtAuction.com and Steve Rocchi (Guaranteed Forensic Authentics).

All of the forgeries that are posted below are all obvious and no-brainer forgeries.

This first one comes with a worthless COA from Stat Authentic (Ted Taylor) who is deservedly on Ebay's Banned COa list.

Here's another set of "Florida" forgeries.  We've seen the below image hundreds of times with those laughable Mantle and DiMaggio forgeries.

Below is a typical "Banana" Mickey Mantle forged baseball.  This is a mass-produced Mantle forgery that was penned in the thousands.

http://www.ebay.com/itm/MICKEY-MANTLE-AUTO-AUTOGRAPH-SIGNED-AL-Base...

This is another example of an Ebay seller using an old Scoreboard COA to sell a Mantle forgery.

http://www.ebay.com/itm/MICKEY-MANTLE-NO-7-AUTOGRAPH-SIGNED-OML-BAS...

This one is on a 1994 World Series Baseball.  I have yet to see an authentic Mantle autograph on a 1994 World Series baseball.

This Mantle forgery also comes with a COA from Scoreboard.  This is NOT a Scoreboard product.  One of the biggest scams over the last few years are sellers of forgeries using an old Scoreboard COA to list and sell their forgeries.  The below Scoreboard COA looks like a 8th generation copy.

Again, this is another case of an Ebay seller using a Scoreboard COA to sell forgeries.

It's 2015 and suckers and wannabe autograph collectors are still buying crap like this.

Someone wasted $350.00 (Best Offer Accepted) on the Mickey Mantle forgery below sold by Ebay seller Jessnjamie.

The worthless COA is from Shop At Home who sold approximately $750,000 in forgeries to consumers.

And, of course, B&J Collectibles sold millions in forgeries during the "Operation Bullpen" era.
