As many of us know, Ebay has done a decent job removing forgeries from their auction site over the past twelve months, but during that time the forgers and sellers of forgeries have found other outlets to sell their forgeries of Mickey Mantle, Joe DiMaggio, Ted Williams, Willie Mays, Tiger Woods, etc.
Over the past year or so, these forgeries have made their way into local auctions and these local auctions are springing up all over the country.
Numerous sellers of forgeries sometimes use an online auction platform titled www.proxibid.com.
One of those sellers is LLP Auctions out of Tampa, Florida.
Below you will find photographs from some of their auctions. These aren't the usual forgeries that we are used to seeing on various auctions sites. These are truly horrific and from what I can see, they are all penned by the same hand.
Please have your barf-bag ready.
First the link:
First we have a Lou Gehrig forgery. Amazing that Mr. Gehrig, who passed away June 2, 1941, used a black sharpie to pen this photograph. This is one pathetic forgery.
Now we have a Mickey Mantle forgery listed by LLP Auctions out of Tampa, Florida.
Next is a Tiger Woods forgery. As you can already see, these have been penned by the same hand.
Here we have another horrific forgery (Whitey Ford) listed by LLP Auctions out of Tampa, Florida.
Here's a Roberto Clemente forgery.
Here's another Mickey Mantle forgery.
Look at this ugly Pete Rose forgery.
Joe DiMaggio forgery.
Once again, as you can see, these were all penned by the same hand. They look like they were penned by a three-year old.
Harmon Killebrew forgery listed by seller LLP Auctions.
Michael Jordan ugly and pathetic forgery.
Jackie Robinson forgery listed by LLP Auctions.
One more photo. Look at this horrific Derek Jeter forgery listed by LLP Auctions. Again, looks like it was penned by a three-year old.
Again, here is the link to all of their auctions.
And I will repeat, all of these look like they were penned by the same hand; the hand of a three-year old.
