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).
Here's a good laugh!!!
Check out this forged Mickey Mantle/Ted Williams baseball listed by Ebay seller Pbag1935.
Typical 1990's piece-of-crap forgeries with a worthless COA from B&J Collectibles.
Fortunately, the seller has listed at a price that not even the people who buy forgeries will bid on this garbage.
Ebay seller Pbag1935 writes "Own a piece of history."
Well, there is "history" here, but it's all negative.
