Default Fake Engraved Items

So I've been watching this seller from the U.K. selling obvious engraved fake items, was waiting for them to now to start appearing under the U.S. sellers who bought them and now re-selling. Pretty sure that's the case here, just be wary anything engraved:

U.S. seller:

Nice job watching for these. The good thing is they look fake, especially the Pat Moran card case. When the crooks actually get to mastering the pre-computer typefaces then we'll have problem.

The Gifford one is so obvious. Who but a 'pom' (Brit) would put "American Football" on an item. Also, what is the point of having World Series on the Yogi Berra item if it does not also have the word 'Champions'? The original seller is obviously a fornicating rectum.

Here are a few more. His fake North American sports items, including NHL, are all from the last six months. Before that it was WWII German items. Most of these items are selling for less than $80.00. The Tommy Heinsohn item actually sold for over $160.00 and the buyer has feedback of over 22,000. This was more than the Babe Ruth item.

Agree... The Frank Gifford made me laugh the hardest. As if it would say "American Football"

Good job pointing these out... Not that they should fool anyone here, but they sure duped some "less discriminating" collectors, apparently.

go to a few legit sports auction house websites and search for engraved in past auctions. you will find quite a few pieces as questionable as the ones above. very easy to take a vintage $50 silver platter and turn it into a presentation piece to a famous athlete.

With the Gifford, even the '1956 Season' is weird wording.

I remember when my Spanish friend once said she wanted me to take her to a 'baseball match." I said "Sure, but it's called a game."

Regarding the Gifford piece, you have to remember that his target customer is people who have too much money, no collectible knowledge and minimal brain matter.
