I'm only posting this because they are the largest third party authenticators.Their credibility in the sports card world is quickly burning in flames. All this started with some collectors breaking…Continue

T206 baseball card forgeries. Rocking the vintage card hobby the last week.

I'm not sure if this has been discussed elsewhere on AML. Some of the vintage collectors at Net54 discovered a forger who has been getting bogus signed 1909-1911 t206 cards passed by the major…Continue

TradeGeek replied to Anthony Mackiewicz's discussion Do you guys think forensic autograph authenticator is a reliable certification group.
"Anytime I hear "forensic" I run. I don't completely trust the big three (PSA, JSA and Beckett) much less any fly by night group with fancy "certifications". "

TradeGeek replied to Vincent S Dominick's discussion Real or fake Mike Trout autograph?
" +1  Definitely fake. I've seen worse forgeries. But Trout doesn't sign inscriptions in person. And an authentic in person Trout, on the side panel in sharpie sells for $250+. Blue ink on the sweet spot with an inscription would…"

TradeGeek replied to Zabrina Mee's discussion Willie Mays Say Hey real or fake hologram???
"As others have said, the hologram means nothing. There are authentic examples with the hologram and terrible forgeries. Like this one. My lawyer paid $350 for this garbage at a charity auction. "

"I wouldn't want it. That appears to be an attempt at his current in person autograph. The M is atypical and the transition is strange.  If that was supposedly signed when he was in the minors, he had a very different autograph. And that…"

"I have never seen so many either. Steiner had Jeter and Rivera signed to an exclusive. The rest must have taken quite a bit of effort. "

"Nice! Can’t recall ever seeing an mlb cert listing so many separate signings but it definitely checks out.  Did you get those signatures yourself? "

About Me

What kind of member are you? Industry professionals must use their real names and identify themselves as such. (Check as many as apply.)
Collector
What brings you to Autograph Live?
I was a collector as a child and owned a retail store in high school specializing in sports memorabilia (mostly sports cards, ya it was the early 90s). Was inactive after college. Recently, my 8 year old son has become a huge baseball fan. I have started collecting again with my son after a 20 year hiatus. The shocking volume of forgeries on the market brought me here.
Who can we thank for telling you about Autograph Live?
word of mouth
What do you collect, or want to collect?
Sports
Tell us more about your collection, specific areas of interest, etc.:
Primarily baseball. Mostly in person autographs. I have a large sports card collection and do collect certified autographed cards. Most of my collection was either signed in person for me or for someone I know. I generally shy away from purchasing autographs given the number of forgeries on the market.
What is your level of expertise?
Intermediate Collector
What is your favorite autograph in your collection?
A Walter Payton photo my first employee gave me for my birthday in 1994. It is personalized and came from my friend's ex-wife in Chicago who worked in the same building as WP at the time.
For my son? Mike Trout signed a ball for him last summer. It was a BLEM he was playing catch with earlier that day. It has ketchup on it. But he landed Trout!
Why do you collect?
To expose my son to the same joy of baseball I had as a child.
You can ask anyone living or dead for their autograph. Who would it be?
Walter Payton. Just to meet him
