Very good point, Scott, but I'm contending that with the way things are in the hobby, that literally EVERYBODY may have items for sale that may be fake. Again, there are well-documented cases where even the most highly-regarded authenticators have sold items that were not real. All I can do is try to get you all to understand that I am not purposely selling fake autographs and I am CERTAINLY not creating them. I can't prove it, but I can only hope that you will see me as genuine.

it always comes back to somebody saying i can show you a link to a article where ...fill in the blank... has shown some third party has made a mistake... this is to show that really it was honest that they dont know what they are doing or to use as a cover for getting caught doing it. not my first rodeo. except this one came with all american resume, , sooo the cats out of the bag , seller has 80% of the items listed that are bad, and 80% of the items sold are bad , off the top paige mack and combs as hofers over 100-200 are at the top bad. so now that the whole operation has been outed . whatcha do? this is a simple deal, first thing if you arent going to remove all of them , you would have been better off never responding on here , just let it drift down the page and not list anymore hofers over 20.00 .that goes also on resume as dumb move. i buy so many autographs and collections , have for years , and if you have been doing it for 40 years , it would be impossible not to know this many were bad, the same pattern goes all the way back to fake bob moose and mike miley in october and the real duke snider sold the same time. just not possible of a scenario for this to play out as a victim .should have left off paige , got too greedy

Not to hijack the thread… But Kirk why do you never respond to questions on eBay? I send you questions about items all the time and never get a response. Just wondering.

did you ask it here or through ebay? i got maybe 21000 on ebay get alot of questions , alot of emails . and alot of questions that just go nowhere , so it is best to send me a direct email unless it is one of the qustion like a guy who emailed this christmas and asked for a scan of the back of the psa/dna cert card, i have stopped for the most part answering those

Adam-
First I think you deserve credit for coming on here and not hiding away from the accusations. That said, to say that most everyone sells a fake autograph here and there is not quite an accurate statement. There's a difference between someone taking the time to thoroughly vette an autograph before selling it and making the occasional mistake, and not taking the time at all and writing it off as the cost of doing business. Just my opinion, but it doesn't seem like a viable business model to not perform your due diligence when offering signatures into the market, particularly on ebay where it's fairly common knowledge that the customer base lacks the knowledge and experience of say, the members on this site. Again, you sound like a good enough guy who isn't maliciously trying to defraud people, but I think you have a responsibility to be more proactive in ensuring the items you're offering are good. Or at the very least stating clearly that some doubt could exist, as suggested above.

This guy does not deserve credit for coming on here. Obvious forgeries. Those that make honest mistakes might have a bad one or two in the bunch, but I have NEVER seen forgeries of some of the stuff he is trying to get away with. Secretarials and sisters' signatures are one thing, but numerous outright forgeries is another. I will even give a strictly card guy a pass when they make a mistake, but not someone who claims knowledge of autographs and collecting autographs. Bottom line sir, you are a liar. Go away.

I hate that Ebay allows "Private Listing/Bidders Identities Protected."

While he's selling forgeries, he's purchasing authentic autographs from Jim Stinson.

Check his "Feedback As A Buyer."

Back in the day, when I was exposing a ton of sellers on Ebay for selling forgeries, I observed 25% of them were using the funds from their sales of forgeries to purchase authentic autographs from UDA, Steiner Sports, etc.

i did notice on the guy like hank bauer which is worth about .10 more than nothing it didnt have a private auction. and yes you are correct because now you cant see the whole user id anyway , but...on the flip side the private auction is good because if a seller is using it , stay away , you know what they are up to, and dont bid on their items
