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 "500 Homerun Club" baseball (Mantle, Williams, etc).
It's 2020 and people are still bidding and buying crap like this.
This is a freaking train wreck.
You would be hard-pressed to find uglier and more laughable forgeries than these.
Crap like this sells because Ebay continues to be heavily-populated with delusional autograph collectors and impulse buyers who have this notion that Ebay filters out the forgeries. Nothing could be further from the truth. Ebay has profited big-time from the sales of forgeries for the past twenty years.
I will continue to expose this crap.
The worthless COA is from "All American Authentics (scam operation or just incompetent?).
These look like they were penned by a four-year old.
