Hello all autograph collectors and Yankees fans. This is my first blog so I figured I would like to show you guys out there what an authentic Yogi Berra looks like apposed to a fake. As you all know Yogi Berra is still alive and kicking and as always a great autograph to own as a Baseball fan if your a H.O.F auto collector or just a baseball collector alike. Yogi Berra does numerous signings and you can always purchase an authentic Berra from steinersports.com and or send in your item to be signed in private or in person when he does appearances. You can also get authentic Yogi Berra autographs through his museum were he signs items sent in for an nominal fee ranging between I believe $100-$200, steiner sports signings are slightly less. The photo of the forgery (on top with Ted Williams) is selling for $100 currently at auction to purchase out right and bidding is a little bit lower but not by much less. The authentic example is the card I had signed in person (on the bottom) some time ago. Berra's signature has been spot on for some years now and has not changed much as some athletes autographs do in time, but as you can see from the forgery and the authentic example the forger was not even close for obvious reasons that are in plain sight. Also another give away for this piece is the placement of the signature. Most players that sign a large amount of certain images "like yogi does on this one in particular" of Berra and WIlliams at the plate sign in and or close to around the same area all the time, not to mention the size of the auto positioning is almost the same all the time as well. Just a few tips on what most players do on more recognizable images or other images that an athlete signs very often, not to say if it was signed in a different spot it would not be authentic. Another good way to get an authentic Berra is to purchase one of his cards signed through a private company such as Upper Deck etc. for more then likely much less then these prices but make certain it is certified on its back side by the seller to insure your getting an authentic item. Fell free to send comments or ask any questions as I have been collecting specifically "Yankees" autographs from all generations for 20 plus years, and like most of us purchased forged junk in the past as a new collector when I was not educated enough through research and experience to know the difference. Thank you and happy collecting !!!
