Bought this, don't think it is real. Compared it with a few on Steiner and MLB Authentics and there are some glaring discrepencies in my opinion.
Few things jump out at me. 1) every jeter autograph I have seen has him ending the D and not connecting it to other letters. Secondly, the D is not as wide and doesn't have 3 smaller loops overlapping the D.
2) the 2nd large loop always cuts across the set of smaller loops, doesn't come beneath the loops.
3) the third large loop, either starts beneath the signature or ends beneath the signature.
4) this was one continuous motion, no breaks.
Here is one of the legit pieces I was comparing to:
Thank you guys. Tony, please forgive my ignorance of the lingo, but what do you mean by "baseline is way off"?
Seller won't give me a refund. Swears it is real and that the two companies who authenticated it are very good. When I bought, he didn't tell me it was authenticated by those two companies or I wouldn't have bought it. Filed a paypal claim, still waiting.
Patrick, you should definitely have a case if the seller sent you a different photo than what was represented in his/her ad.
Take a straight edge, and line it up under the signature that you know is authentic. You will see that the signature mostly follows a straight line, with some letters consistently below and above what we call the "baseline".
Now take the straight edge, and place it under the forgery. What do you see differently, toward the end of the signature?
what a crook.... paypal should give your refund with ease with that nonsense
