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).
Check out this piece-of-crap forged "500 Homerun Club" baseball sold by Ebay seller Ants_in_my_eyes_dacuz for $521.11.
Immediately below is a link to another blog on this seller.
Someone just threw $521.11 down the toilet for this laughable garbage.
Look at this crap!!!
It's 2021 and it is difficult to believe that people (impulse buyers and delusional collectors) are still buying garbage like this.
I hope the buyer submits this crap to Beckett, JSA or PSA.
Eventually the buyer of this crap will be selling it and then they'll discover it's got zero value.
This once again proves just how easy it is to sell forgeries on EBay, with Ebay so heavily-populated with delusional autograph collectors and impulse buyers.
If you don't know autographs, Ebay is, in my opinion, the most dangerous place to buy autographs.
People assume that Ebay filters out the forgeries; they do not; Ebay profits big-time from the sales of forgeries.
