Mickey Mantle Souvenir Baseball Sells For $307.00

Before I continue, below are links showing hundreds of examples of forged Mickey Mantle baseballs, photos, etc. found on Ebay (the most dangerous place to buy autographs if you're a casual collector or impulse buyer).




In my blogs when I expose the Ebay sellers of Mickey Mantle forged baseballs, bats, etc., I usually post the seller's Ebay ID in the title, but not in this case.

But this isn't about a forged Mickey Mantle baseball.

This is about a buyer who purchased a Mickey Mantle souvenir baseball for $307.00.

There is nothing rare about the below Mickey Mantle souvenir baseball.

The people who bid on this, do they actually think that this is a hand-signed autograph of The Mick?

Is it possible that the souvenir baseball was shill bid to $307.00?

First, the souvenir baseball.

As we all know, Ebay is a cesspool forgeries; on any given day, more forged Mickey Mantle photos are sold on Ebay than authentic Mickey Mantle photos.

It's 2023 and people still think that Ebay filters out the forgeries; nothing could be further from the truth.  It is very easy to sell forgeries on Ebay.

Now let's take a look at the bidders.

The winning bidder has a bidding percentage of 66% with the seller of the souvenir baseball.

It is not difficult to believe that someone really did spend $307.00 for this not-so-rare Mickey Mantle souvenir baseball.

If this is a legitimate sale, will the buyer attempt to flip it on Ebay?

You're right, Terrier.  Just ridiculous.
