I'd love to see the photo paper branding on one of these.

I've had a few in hand. There was no marking on back, of course. But they are inkjet prints... Not lab produced photographs.

So a dealer spends big bucks to get these guys to sign a ton of photos back in the 90s -- earlier for Maris and Martin. It makes total sense they would use 5x7 inkjet photos.

Love that Home Plate COA. They're standing behind it completely...and if they walk around the edge of the table, they'll be standing behind it partially...and if they walk to the other side of the table, they're standing in front of it.

What kind of guarantee is that? They're making the effort to produce these, you'd think they'd come up with something that at least sounds professional and confidence inspiring.

I have quite a few of those that I purchased from AtAuction.

The forgeries are so bad, that the shipping cost more than the forged autograph.

All on inkjet paper.

Mike, they don't run: they just move on to another worthless COA.

Is it me or does these 100% guarantees make it easier for the feds to crack down on them? If they were so inclined?

These photos bring back memories from trips to Las Vegas. My work took me Vegas often and within 30 minutes checking into the hotel I would head over well know card store on strip. I bought a ton of stuff from them , the items were well framed and the autographs were in clear blue sharpie. One time I told them I was looking for a Mays autograph and before I went home they had one in stock. What luck . I was walking near the store the day it was raided by the FBI.


The good news thanks to a helpful San Diego FBI agent I received all my money back via court settlement from the seller.

The were all Greg Marino forgeries

Lesson learned.

Just to let you know. Richard, Chris and I worked hand in hand with law reinforcement for the past seven years. It all came to and end when the FBI in Florida refused to issue warrants
If any one of you want to call your local FBI and get this started again it would be greatly appreciated.

I'm talking about the ones that are obviously stretched JPEG of people who died before that was even a thing.

That FBI raid on that store was either televised live or in a news story about the raid. I remember seeing it on TV. The owner of the store was whimpering like a little baby when the Feds hauled off all his crap.
