I bought this 20+years ago. At the time wasn't a big collector the price was good and the piece looked nice. That said wasn't as in to if it was authentic or not back then. Now the industry being…Continue

"yes 3rd party authentication is a joke. but because 95% of autograph collectors have no clue how to tell an authentic signature from a bogus signature, they will rely on psa/dna, jsa, or beckett to do the work for them.  and that's sad…"

"Good they've upped their game a little bit. Only time I've dealt with PSA at all was when I decided to get them to "authenticate" a couple items at the Sun-Times sports show about 8 years ago. It did strike me that the entire…"

"Agreed. I thank you all for the replies. I like the idea Tradegeek stated that they be right there. The one I did in Boston was not close and I thought what if someone did bring fakes and then I saw the video and was somewhat surprised how easy it…"

TradeGeek replied to RVK's discussion JSA, Beckett, PSA show stickers
"I have no experience with JSA, however I've been to any number of signings with PSA and more recently Beckett. In each instance the people from the authentication company were literally a couple feet away from where the athletes were signings.…"

JSA, Beckett, PSA show stickers

I watched a video on how at these trade shows you can bring in fake autographs and have these companies put stickers certifying them with virtually no issues. I was just curious as to your take on Witness stickers. It seems these should be more secure but wanted to see what people thought about this. The video in question was this one.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uw1kKGHxVhASee More

"I had a VERY similar one in my collection - and on the same photo. I believe the forger was a guy called John Olsen - a very high profile case. If you look at examples from Online Authenics, which was an official Ali dealer, the signatures are…"

"No, thanks for the reply. I had heard about a big forgery operation just not the specifics. That’s why I got on here to see what people think. It’s the one in my collection that i always thought about. "

"Hey. Sorry to disappoint, but this looks very similar to a fake I bought in the early 2000s when I first started collecting. Google Operation Bullpen and Muhammad Ali and you’ll see the market was flooded with this type of forgery at that…"

Thoughts on Ali autograph

I bought this 20+years ago. At the time wasn't a big collector the price was good and the piece looked nice. That said wasn't as in to if it was authentic or not back then. Now the industry being what it is would like to get an opinion. The company in question I can no longer find. The phone number is not in use anymore last time I called. The picture is nicely secured and I have yet to open the back as not to ruin it. Any thoughts from anyone would be appreciated.See More
