Since we all hate dealing with the Black Friday shopping, I thought I’d start this blog off with a Black Friday deal you might be interested in. I heard about this a few weeks ago, and thought it would be lame. When I discovered it was kind of cool, I thought I’d give you the heads up. I had read that Barnes & Nobles bookstores would bring out autographed copies of various books, as one of many incentives to get people into their stores this weekend. The picture in the paper showed a…Continue
Check out these ugly Mickey Mantle, Joe DiMaggio, Ted Williams, etc. forgeries listed by Piedmont Auctions under the AuctionZip platform.
These are obvious and typical forgeries that we see listed and sold on EBay every day.
The worthless COAs are from Authentic Autographs Unlimited (AAU) and Drew Max/Marc Goldman.

I know the artist is Dorothy Ahrens, she did this in pencil and the autograph is made out to her. Thanks for any help on this.…Continue
