Steve Zarelli commented on Christopher Williams's blog post Ebay Seller Jerrsmith07 Forged Signed Donald Trump Book COA NOT PSA Please Read!!!
"Because the certs are probably copies or prints on light weight paper. Not real cardstock. Labels may be just regular stickers. Poor photos help camouflage the knock off certs and stickers."
