I bought a DiMaggio ball and after receiving it with only a Field of Dreams sticker with a number and no actual COA I began to investigate. Field of Dreams does not confirm this autograph is authentic or not. Problem one.
I then came across this and noticed not only is it FOD COA, but looks exactly like the handwriting on the ball I have.
Seller refuses to return it given the newly found evidence that his post was not correct about the COA or Field of Dreams backing, and not being able to prove outside of that if it was real or not. Here are the photos:
Real or not Real?
By now, you must have figured out is is an easy to spot forgery. FAKE, PERIOD
the "gg" are always a giveaway
if you continue to study authentic versions (PSA and JSA usually have these correct), you will begin to be able to spot these forgeries easily.
It's all about pen-speed.
Typical Joe D. forgery.
