A pile of questionable sports autograph

Started this discussion. Last reply by TradeGeek Jun 28. 6 Replies

On a Facebook sports card page I follow somebody posted a bunch of autographs for sale at small shop in ILL. He's getting all kinds of terrible advice. I'd like some more confirmation from some of…Continue

Any opinions of this Ted Williams? 16 by 20 photo.Something I have never done. Ran into this as an Amazon prime "lighting deal". Very good price for a 16 by 20. PSA cert among two others (which mean…Continue

Since Amazon knows my every thought, this item popped up when I logged in today. $124.99 for a Clayton Kershaw ball with a "Steiner" COA. No picture of the COA or sticker was provided. The signature…Continue

"What is strange is some of the autographs were legit. The Snider was good. So was the Lasorda. I'm very familiar with those. It seems somebody took a relatively inexpensive ball with some autographs and decided wo juice it up with some…"

"McMullen and Campanella obviously both signed by the same hand. Forgers with limited skills should quit while only behind a little. lol"

"Thanks. The Maris looked way off to me as well. I have purchased many items from this shop. Part of me wanted to be wrong. But you and Christopher confirmed what I suspected."

Roy Campanella ball

I was offered this today. Charles Feeney National League ball (1970-1986). Random Dodger stars and HOF players. The ones I am familiar with are good. Lasorda, Snoder, Wills, Tommy Davis.. to name a few. All solid. Then I see a beautiful Roy Campanella. Which took me off guard. The ball dodn't exist pre accident. But it's clean autograph. Is that possible? Provenance is solid. Collextion was purchased from the family of an avid in person collector. (1970s and 80s). I have purchased many items…See More

TradeGeek replied to Dan Sutcliffe's discussion Mike Trout Jersey but no "27"
"That's his typical in person rushed auto from a game. He typically does not sign "27" in person. Or if he does it's not legible. For Topps or for a paid signing his autograph is a little different and he often signs…"

About Me

What kind of member are you? Industry professionals must use their real names and identify themselves as such. (Check as many as apply.)
Collector
What brings you to Autograph Live?
I was a collector as a child and owned a retail store in high school specializing in sports memorabilia (mostly sports cards, ya it was the early 90s). Was inactive after college. Recently, my 8 year old son has become a huge baseball fan. I have started collecting again with my son after a 20 year hiatus. The shocking volume of forgeries on the market brought me here.
Who can we thank for telling you about Autograph Live?
word of mouth
What do you collect, or want to collect?
Sports
Tell us more about your collection, specific areas of interest, etc.:
Primarily baseball. Mostly in person autographs. I have a large sports card collection and do collect certified autographed cards. Most of my collection was either signed in person for me or for someone I know. I generally shy away from purchasing autographs given the number of forgeries on the market.
What is your level of expertise?
Intermediate Collector
What is your favorite autograph in your collection?
A Walter Payton photo my first employee gave me for my birthday in 1994. It is personalized and came from my friend's ex-wife in Chicago who worked in the same building as WP at the time.
For my son? Mike Trout signed a ball for him last summer. It was a BLEM he was playing catch with earlier that day. It has ketchup on it. But he landed Trout!
Why do you collect?
To expose my son to the same joy of baseball I had as a child.
You can ask anyone living or dead for their autograph. Who would it be?
Walter Payton. Just to meet him
