Default Shop at home forgeries

How are the guys who sold all of these forgeries not in jail? I remember their stories about how they collected all these things in person & how difficult some of them were to obtain.

It’s incredible they got away with such a high profile scam.

I know that QVC didn't sell forgeries.........The Goldin COA's unfortunately were easy to replicate and be placed with bad items on the secondary market.

Not sure if they did just guilt by association, which I shouldn’t do.

There were also some independent shows on national television, where they would buy the airtime late at night and sell stuff, I’ve seen those get rejected.

Ballsy scam.

If you’re going to give your “opinion” you should have your full name with your post. Clearly by some of your other threads and posts you don’t know what you’re talking about when it comes to certain autographs. If you plan on throwing crap at the wall, you should stand by what you say.

Richard is so right!!!

The "Florida" forgeries, with the majority being "authenticated" by Stephen Rocchi and John Gorajczyk of Guaranteed Forensic Authenticators, is a serious and significant "Forgery Industry."
