Recently found a Mickey Mantle autographed baseball. The person found it for me knows I love collecting baseballs and that I have quite a few. They found it at a goodwill auction but for dirt cheap but wouldn't tell me the price. Apparently a lot of people were bidding on it. But can y'all tell me what y'all think of it? Thanks!!

Yeah unfortunately it was dirt cheap because it isn't authentic, sorry to say.

My opinion as well. Chris and Terrier will probably mosey on in soon and make it official! :)

This was signed by the infamous forger, Greg Marino.

Is this what they mean by the "banana Mantle"? (M on Mickey)?

No. The Banana Mantle style has a narrow banana shaped loop that goes under the Ms. Here is an example.

The Marino fakes have a loop that is shaped like a backward D that is too much on the left side of the Ms. It does not go underneath the Ms like the bananas.

sorry but this one is a clunker.
