In this thread I'm simply going to post examples of the "Florida" forgeries and examples of the worthless "Florida" COAs.
The final bid prices on the "Florida" forgeries are indicative of what they are:
The majority of the "Florida" forgeries have worthless COAs from sham authenticators like Guaranteed Forensic Authenticators (Rocchi), Chris Morales, Drew Max and the approximately four dozen "Florida" COAs.
A lot of this garbage is sold at estate sales and local auctions to people who know zero about autographs.
Why aren't the major autograph dealers on Ebay and real autograph collectors not bidding and buying these "autographs?"
Because they, like myself, know they are obvious and pathetic forgeries that with the naked eye look like they are mechanically penned.
It's sad that the delusional aren't smart enough to ask the question "Where are they acquiring all of this inventory and how can they list and sell the same images over and over again?"
But then again, that's why I call them "delusional autograph collectors."
These are listed and sold by approximately two dozens sellers on Ebay and approximately three dozen worthless "Florida" COAs.
Below are some of their Ebay IDs:
All of these are NO-BRAINER "Florida" Forgeries:
Worthless COA from CSC Collectibles who is on Ebay's Banned COA list. This is another mass-produced Florida forgery that is basically a copy produced on inkjet paper.
In other words, a typical piece-of-crap Florida forgery.
Crap with a worthless COA from Showtime Memorabilia. Mass-produced forgeries. Not even hand-penned. Copies of forgeries produced on inkjet paper.
Typical mass-produced and laughable Florida forgery with a worthless COA from Ted Taylor.
Worthless Myst-O-Graph COA.
Look at these Mantle and DiMaggio "Florida" forgeries.
These are not a Scoreboard product.
Here's yet another "Florida" forgery. Mass-produced in the thousands.
I will not allow this thread to fade away. I will be posting one comment a day and continue to expose the "Florida" forgeries that sell on Ebay.
Sold by EBay seller Sportsology2015 for a whopping $27.00
It's all a grotesque miscarriage of justice. OH How they have completely ruined a hobby. So pathetic on so many different levels. A first grader should be able to smell these scams out, No? NO. The creators, the scammer sellers, the dopey buyers, they all have their hands in it. It's all a dirty shame that people are so very ignorant and have lost their way with zero integrity in their lives. It starts with education parents. These kids buying this slop are jerkmehoff knumbieskulls PERIOD.
You're right, Fudd; this crap has ruined the autograph hobby.
I have no sympathy for the people that buy this crap.
Eventually they will discover that what they own is worthless.
When does an autograph photo of Mickey Mantle sell for a whopping $26.25?
When it's a mass-produced "Florida" forgery with a COA from Showtime Memorabilia and when it was sold by Ebay seller Sportspic2017 (One of about two dozen Florida sellers of forgeries).
The "power" of these certificates and damn holographic stickers mixed with desire and lack of information. Ugh.
and the desire to get a "bargain"
In other words "delusional."
The ugly putrid Ks in these Mantle forgeries remind me of a twisted finger (or a limp,nevermind).
That's funny, Ian.
Sold by Ebay seller Cynlyn75 for a whopping $40.00.
Sandy Koufax forged baseball sold by Ebay seller Bestbeach (the latest and newest Florida seller of forgeries) for $76.00.
