I believe all three are authentic
Gateway was well. Known for dealing directly with the athlete and when I had athletes such as Ripken, Ryan, Aaron , etc they would contract with us to purchase autographs and we would have their items signed in person.
Although it's possible, I cannot recall seeing a non authentic postmarked gateway . All three autos look period correct to me as well, and I certainly had a lot signed by these guys!

Great analysis by Larry Rosenbaum:


In the case of Ted Williams autographs, with the exception of the capital “W” in Williams, Ted would consistently make the size of all the letters in his last name nearly the same exact size. Most telling is the “illia”, with the “l”s just ever so slightly taller than the “i”s, and the “a” as tall as the “l”s. Try as they may, most forgers simply can’t undo years of training and habit causing their “l”s to be significantly taller than their “i”s, and their “a” significantly shorter than their “l”s. Williams also connected the “W” in “Williams” to the “ed” in “Ted” with a swirl that gave forgers difficulty in replicating in the same, easy, flowing movement as appears in authentic examples.

Do you realize that this thread is over a year old?! Also, the autographs are authentic. Nothing to question. Especially since they were purchased from Jim Stinson.

As a matter of fact, I do know how old this thread is. I read this site when I feel like it, and apparently, that's been a while. These Marino forgeries are a dime a dozen. But believe what you want.

This is exactly the response I expected here. Just like Epperson and Reznikoff are geniuses. Frost and Shelly are honest, blah blah blah.
