Guaranteed Forensic Authenticators COA Examples Of Forgeries Mickey Mantle Joe DiMaggio

Before I continue with this blog, immediately below are links to my previous blogs on Guaranteed Forensic Authenticators (GFA).

I wanted to do my last follow-up blog on Guaranteed Forensic Authenticators (GFA); showing examples of forgeries with GFA cert that are presently listed on Ebay.

GFA and Stephen Rocchi opened their doors in September of 2011; that was  almost eleven years ago, and as of today (August 6, 2022) I still have yet to observe one authentic Mickey Mantle, Ted Williams, Joe DiMaggio, Willie Mays, Sandy Koufax, etc., with a COA from Guaranteed Forensic Authenticators.  Not one.

Please note also that the majority of the below listings have laughable "Buy It Now" prices which means they will never sell.

It's 2022, and with all of the information available, people still refuse to do any research, or at the very least, ask questions, and for some reason the word "Forensics" continues impresses people.

95% of forgeries can be opined from a simple scan.

The majority of Forensic-Authenticated forgeries are from Stephen Rocchi (GFA), Drew Max, Chris Morales and a few others.  I remember our nickname for Christopher Morales; we called him Chris "I Never Saw I An Autograph I Didn't Like" Morales.

People buy this crap at local auctions thinking they "got a steal" and then go to Ebay to flip it.

Below are examples of present-day listings of forgeries with COAs from GFA.

The framed crap shown below aren't even hand-penned forgeries; they are basically copies of forgeries produced on inkjet paper.

Look at all of this garbage.  Most of them are mass-produced forgeries.

The two "DiMaggio's" below are listed by two different sellers.
