"The signature is just good enough to slip it by a lot of people. Not many are familiar enough with that era Jeter signature."

Immediately below are links to previous threads on forged/counterfeit Kobe Bryant "2000-01 Ovation" cards.

People are continuing to emotionally impulsive buy Kobe Bryant forgeries on Ebay.

I find all of this disgusting.

People don't realize what a TOUGH PULL this particular card was and yet they are all over…

I first observed the below-style Derek Jeter forgeries on those forged/counterfeit Derek Jeter "1995 Upper Deck Rookie" cards.

First, I want to show you the two forged Derek Jeter cards.

These were authenticated by Certified Authentication Service (CAS).

I would like to know the person(s) who authenticated…

I also have some unique collectibles that I believe could be one of a kinds to include a Babe Ruth Autographed Baseball.  I have been collecting stuff for many years and would about bet the bank that the Babe Ruth signature is legit.  Here is the twist.  On the opposite Sweet Spot there is nothing.  On the other sweet spot it has Babe Ruth and I cannot tell if it was printed or signature but I am thinking this was printed and is the label?  Below this "Japan 1934" and after this it has what I would bet almost anything on his is signature.  The weird thing is the 2 symbols inscribed on each side of the ball.  I had a Japanese collector tell me this is the symbol of the Order of the Golden Kite that was an elite clan/ninjas/whatever that served the Emperor of Japan.  It was dissolved in 1947 I think it was by the commander of the Japanese Allied Forces.  I mean I have seen thousands of baseballs and never seen anything like this.  Everyone I show it to freaks out and I am including collectors and some are thinking that it could be a one of a kind.  Might be worthy of posting on a major sports memorabilia or auction site.

Thanks for allowing me on this site and thanks for the message Christopher.  I just bought a Joe DiMaggio autographed photo from BOXSCORE.  I then read some of your articles as you know and immediately sent a message to them that when the item arrives I am probably going to return it.  I then got a long email from him that some sites are under litigation for false accusations against him and other new sports memorabilia authentication companies.  It was a long letter telling me he is an avid collector and that he would never sell a forgery.  With that being said, it sounds like you have no doubt about them?

Chris can you please accept my request so I can send you a message. I have received a complaint about a fake Mantle I pointed out.
