Default They are still out there :( :(

Just was offered this collection that his "dad" got in the 1950's - 70's.
His "dad" was an avid baseball fan.

Sad that anyone would think they could pass off that junk to someone who
knows autographs as well as you do, Richard. So much crap out there.

It is always nice to be able to pick up an Elmer Flick at the same time as Michael Jordan! 😀 seems legit!

A few of the lesser names look like they might be authentic but all the big names are totally fake. A classic mix and match scam.

It is a collection of forgeries. Not something I am buying.
I was quite excited when he sent me the list of names but,,,, .
We got into it a bit in emails and then he eventually offered the entire garbage to me at $5 per piece.
It never ends.

An "avid " baseball fan DOES NOT EQUAL a knowledgeable collector , even if the "story" was true.

They all look like they were signed by the same person. My guess a C.C. buyer at one time.

They were certainly signed by the same inept person.
I don't think it looks like CC garbage. I think it is just an amateur forger.
Comes from a Western state with a barely measurable population. .

The Jesse Owens signature, which is sitting on top of the Satchel Paige on the lower left, was sold on ebay for $41.00. I discussed in this thread:

http://net54baseball.com/showthread.php?t=255251

Sold by jfried504 who claims to be from Brooklyn.

That was my first thought before even looking at the signatures themselves. Same size, same location.......same hand.
