Over the last few months we have seen the old Scoreboard COA (and reproductions of the old Scoreboard COA) being tainted with holograms.
The holograms being attached to the Scoreboard COA is an attempt to convince autograph collectors (actually wannabe autograph collectors) that the autograph(s) they are purchasing are authentic. This, of course, is not the case.
Original Scoreboard COAs never had holograms attached to them.
Before we started seeing the Scoreboard COA with holograms, the old Scoreboard COA was being reproduced in the thousands to sell forgeries. Wannabe autograph collectors have purchased thousands upon thousands of forgeries accompanied with a original Scoreboard COA or a reproduced Scoreboard COA.
This blog will be used to expose those sellers that are selling forgeries using a Scoreboard COA (or a reproduction) with the hologram attached to it.
The first one we will show here is listed by Ebay seller vintarage.
This is a set of Mickey Mantle and Joe DiMaggio forgeries on a baseball with a Scoreboard COA with a hologram attached to it.
Forged Mantle/Ford photo produced out of Florida. Mr. Florida has infected the hobby with tens of thousands of forgeries.
Florida hologram on it.
Here are a set of forged set of "500 Homerun" players with a fake Scoreboard COA. As you can plainly see these are "Florida" forgeries.
Here is a Joe DiMaggio forged photo with a bogus Scoreboard COA. The idiot who applied those holograms to copied Scoreboard COAs must be a moron.
