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 laughable crap listed by Ebay seller Crlnewtownsquare.
Observe this laughable forged Mickey Mantle baseball with a fake Barry Halper COA.
This garbage originates from Coach's Corner (Lee Trythall and Scott Malack).
You would be hard-pressed to find a more laughable forged Mickey Mantle baseball.
This crap is listed by Ebay seller Crlnewtownsquare.
Roach's Korner, who has sold millions in forgeries for over 20 years, is amazingly still in business.
Like Ebay, the majority of people who buy autographs, purchase forgeries.
Autographs are a scammers paradise with people who are delusional autograph collectors and impulse buyers, and that's why there is bidding on this crap.
On any given day, in my opinion, more forgeries are sold on EBay on a daily basis than authentic autographs.
Look at this garbage.
People buy crap like this cheap from Coach's Corner, then they hope to make a killing on Ebay flipping crap like this.
At the point of this being posted, bidding was at $213.00.
If this was authentic, collectors like myself would be bidding on it, and the bidding would easily be at $1,500.00.
