In this blog, I will show examples of Mickey Mantle (and others) forgeries with a COA from a "company" called Star Authentic.
I've been observing only forgeries associated with that COA.
As with "typical" cheesy COAs like this, they never have a name or a phone number on the COA.
These are your typical "Florida Forgeries."
Immediately below is a link to the "Florida Forgeries" blog.
A ton of this garbage is sold at local and estate auctions because the people (the suckers) who buy this crap have zero knowledge of autographs.
Immediately below is a link to another blog on that worthless COA "Star Authentic."
This crap is listed by one seller. You can click your mouse on each image to get a closer look. All garbage with a worthless COA from Star Authentic.
Typical and mass-produced Florida Forgeries.
Mass-produced "500 Home Run Club" forgeries photo. Pure garbage.
Look at this laughable crap. I know three-year old kids who could have penned a better set of forgeries. Who sells and buys crap like this?
More crap with a worthless COA from Star Authentic. These are Florida Forgeries.
Look at this crap!!!!
These are laughable!!!
We have yet to observe one authentic autograph with a COA from Star Authentic.
These forgeries immediately are mass-produced Florida Forgeries. Not even hand-penned forgeries; they are forgeries copied on inkjet paper.
Look at this laughable crap.
Look at this cheesy and laughable COA.
If you buy crap like this, I have no sympathy for you.
If you sell garbage like this, shame on you.
Crap like this sells on Ebay because Ebay is so heavily-populated with delusional autograph collectors and impulse buyers. Ebay does not filter out forgeries; if anything, they encourage the selling of forgeries by doing nothing about them The forgery business on Ebay is huge.
Immediately below is a link showing how Guaranteed Forensic Authenticators (and dozens of other Florida COAs) have "certed" the below Mantle, DiMaggio, Martin and Ford forgeries. Not only are they obvious forgeries, but they are copies of forgeries produced on inkjet paper. Not even hand-signed forgeries. These are Florida Forgeries.
Look at this laughable forged Kobe Bryant on a baseball.
Here is a screenshot of another Ebay seller selling this garbage.
