Christopher,

I took a look at this and the first thing that came to mind was "autopen." The signatures are too uniform and similar to be from a human hand, especially in mass quantity.

Do you think these forgers are using autopen machines?

Absolutely possible.

When I first started in computers in the early 1970's, one of the machines I operated was called a plotter (similar to autopen).

I think I mention that in one of my threads.

After all the discussion, I know that nothing is going to happen unless all of us complain to the Florida FBI. It needs more than just Chris, Richard and myself.
You can complain and say he should be in Jail. Well if you don't start calling nothing will happen:mad :

Absolutely, Shelly.

People have no idea the effort we put forth for years and all for naught so far.

Question I Always Wondered about Tony

I used to work for him circa 1988-1990 and started by drilling plaques then was engraving plates. What was always strange is that for example when Billy Martin died within a week he had 500 autographed photos? All of them had a similar signature and usually always his autos were in blue style pen. Now who would have that many read to be sold? He is a stain to the hobby!

Happy Friday boys... Could you have a bigger belly laugh over this FFace.

"They are all Authentic, except I'm selling them as decorative items".... LOL

So many losers and this guy has been a festering boils on the hobby for 30 plus years. We can only hope a jury will see through the smoke screen that the boob set up thinking he was untouchable.

If a person were inclined they could set up at almost any show in the country and sell fakes - except the National. He must have really wanted to go to jail.

Can you imagine the gall of the guy. He's been perpetuating the same scam and giant fish tale for at least 35 years and has the brass balls to say he's selling them as decorative even though he believes they are real? CHOKE, cough....AT THE NATIONAL. Why would he even dream that one up when every legitimate collector and dealer knows he is the biggest scammer of sports autographs of our lifetime to go along with Coaches Corner, of course.

His newest of the 8 different Authentication scam companies finally tripped him up, I hope. We'll see if Slippity Slimy Tony GreaseBall finally gets his just reward. He was betting Not. because he has gotten away with it for so long.

We can only hope his scam dies in jail with him.

What does "live ink" supposed to mean? As opposed to "dead ink?"

He is calling himself Decor Items Plus (DIP) to try to scam anyone foolish enough to buy his garbage.
He is also using the MLB logo in his ad, that has got to be a trademark violation. Does anyone have a contact at MLB?

"Live ink" means the signature is actual ink on the photo, i.e., not a copy or pre-printed signature.

which we all know is just another lie in a series of lies his entire life.

A LIAR and just another in a series of gigantic douche bags in the hobby.
How sad.

You would need a jackhammer and a gallon of alcohol, and still the "ink" won't come off the photo

Tim, read the below blog.

It was my first-in-a-series on the "Florida" forgeries (machine-produced forgeries--copies) on inkjet paper and "authenticated" by that Forensic Scam known as Guaranteed Forensic Authenticators (GFA/Stephen Rocchi).

Default Eba seller Heroesofthegame305_8 Florida Forgeries

A few months ago, numerous "Florida" sellers of forgeries were booted off Ebay after someone got ripped-off big-time and Ebay finally took action.

Ebay seller Heroesofthgame305_8 is one of the few remaining "Florida" sellers who continues to sell the "Florida" crap.

They have made a mint selling pure garbage.

They should have asked him "Who are your experts/authenticators?"

Did they not charge him with anything in Cleveland? Just shut him down and confiscate? If they did charge him then there's a judge somewhere who would like to know that this is how he awaits trial.

Thank goodness for him he still has a huge inventory of these deceased signatures, I was afraid they might have cleaned him out in Cleveland, and where oh where would he get more?

Default Tony Podsada

I can tell you he is running a slippery slope when he says "They are authentic but I am not selling them as authentic". When you look at this it creates a question that if it is not authentic, then place a watermark on the photo indicating as such and sell it as a copy etc. Now whether that is legal is a another issue. I just don't see any positives in Tony doing this and feel sad for him. He made a nice plaque but that does not matter at this point because no one wants fakes in the market period. He tries to sell something as a decorative item knowing full well that an autograph albeit fake exists which is what cannot be legal in any way.
