I've been a big Mantle collector for years so that's the only one I can provide any helpful input on...

Ok thank you! Not sure what original price was from person who bought it. But will definitely get in contact with them.

Loops are a give away

The subtle details in the Mantle are just wrong. Like the stem of the "k" in Mickey for example.

It should be a backward loop, like this:

Most authentic examples have this trait.

Roy Campanella is bad also. It is known the Roy could only sign flat surfaces after his accident. Scoreboard had him sign some leather baseballs before they were stitched to create a Signed Baseball for the public demand. However, those are all signed on the Sweet Spot.

^^^ Unintended misinformation, I'm sure. Campy was able to write on certain non-flat surfaces. Although unable to sign baseballs, he could autograph bats. The story of the baseballs being signed before stitching is of course true.

From what I gather however, if the Paige is forged, why would the Campy be true? Someone trying to get the extra leg up?

Betting that Negro Lg pic with all the sigs is from Wayne Stivers, too. He sold a few of those.

No CoA from Stivers.. Mike Munns Autographs and Sports Collectibles is CoA. Original invoice packaged with item is for $800.

What did I get into?... Buying a lot of forged items with a few cheap ones scattered in between.
