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 the below forged Mickey Mantle, Ted Williams and Joe DiMaggio baseballs.
These are listed by Ebay seller Ericchavez.
All with worthless COAs from Shop At Home.
Update: This crap ended up selling for $1,300.00!!
What a waste of $1,300.00!!!
During the 1990's Shop At Home sold approximately $750,000 in forgeries and that crap will infect the hobby forever.
Look at this crap.
