Comment by CEE GEE on November 11, 2011 at 4:48am

All Mantles...Dimaggios...Aaron...Matthews...500 HR piece...jackson...are all fakes...really cant comment on the sci-fi and Ali autos...But I know for certain that Ali fakes are really rampant in the industry for sure... 

I actually think the Guidry might be good for 2 reasons...he signs some what sloppy...and as much as i love Guidry I cant really picture anyone wanting to forge Guidry in particular...If the Rose is bad its a really good fake in my opinion...Pete was a bit sloppy from time to time...as was Banks and Robinson...but comparing them to the 500 home run piece you can make the assumption there not good either

Stan the Man autos are bad...some of Williams I am really not sure about...I hate to give an opinion on those because I am really not sure as well as the Mays...but know question the Musial autos are bad...and if its on the one on Williams photo I would say that one in particular is bad as well

I would agree with CEEGEE on the Eddie Matthews being a fake. HIs E in his first name looks more like a B in the picture that you have provided. Any authentic examples that I have seen while researching this has an E that looks more like a backwards 3. Not rounded, but kind of pointed. Also, the example shows a more crowded signature in his first name where as the examples that I looked at has a mored drawn out "Eddie"

I would also say that the Alis are fake as well. In your example, the M in his first name is more pointed and any authentic examples I have seen from Ali all have a rounded begining. I also noticed a loop in the H of his name in the examples gived, but I only found examples with no loop on the H. Those were a couple of red flags that went up for me while I was comparing the autographs.

That crap is all from one source!!!!  And it's all crap!!!

Fudd would concur that the Mantle's are clear cut forgeries. Dimaggios are all fake. The Koufax is clearly a fake forgery fraud as well. Aaron looks terrible. The 500 HR piece is clearly HORRID.

this is very interesting. when I first looked this morning, the mantle's, dimaggio's, jackson and musial stood out as being bad.  the Killebrew in the 500 HR piece is a dead giveaway, he was never that sloppy.

I don't like the rose either, the Pete is off.  As for the Williams, I am with CEE GEE on this, I just cannot figure those out, but based on everything else, they are probably all bogus.

I'm only gonna comment on the autographs that I actually own out these guys featured here, so that I can be sure to comment on what I actually know about. The "B" in the Ernie Banks gives me a bad feeling, as it looks nothing like mine. The "H" in the Hank Aaron is not even close to mine, and does not give me a good feeling. The "oe" and "D" in the Joe DiMaggio examples do not look like anything like the DiMaggio 8x10 I own, so I would say these on here are fake. I've been taught by you guys to always look at the "k" in Mickey Mantle autographs, and if the "k" has a high arch over the "e", then it is a fake. I just compared mine to all these, and see a high arch over the "e" in Mickey, which I don't see in my Mantle 8x10. And Stan Musial seems to always run his "Stan" and Musial" in real tight together, even touching each other most of the time. He also has a high arch in the first part of his "M", and a loop on the right side of his "u", which I don't see on any of the ones on here, but I see in mine. So, tell me guys, am I talking out of my butt, or do I sound like an educated collector, because I sure want to know if I'm getting better at this.

I can tell you the Mantle's, Williams', Jackson, Koufax, Mays, Ali's, Dimaggio's, Aaron, Musial's and Matthews are no good.  I'm not liking the Pete Rose either.

Agree with everything below. The Rose is highly suspect as well.
