Default Opinions on Griffey, Aaron, and Mays

After selling my signed rookie and 33 Goudey collection Iíve resumed a collection of signed HOF baseballs that I started collecting when I was 12. Itís been a lot of fun adding to the collection, but there are a few from my old collection that are questionable. Iíve already disposed of a Mantle that was identified as a forgery and replaced it with an authentic example. Iím down to 3 that Iím unsure of their authenticity and I would appreciate some opinions from those who are more knowledgeable than I am. The Griffey is on a 94 All Star ball and was an eBay purchase in 2000. The Aaron and Mays are both Coleman ONLBs and both were purchased on eBay in 2001. The Aaron has a QVC COA and the Mays has a Say Hey hologram (not that either of those things matter). Thank you in advance for any insight.

Jason

Thank you so much for taking the time to reply. The fake Say Hey holograms gave me cause for concern, but I guess I purchased mine before the holograms fell into the wrong hands. The Griffey I almost felt like was too nice of a signature. Nice to know I donít need to repurchase those two!

The fake Say hey Hologram issue is first and foremost drastically overblown. Additionally, its usually on crappy 8x10s and some baseballs/replica jerseys. The larger holograms are not the faked ones, itís the smaller ones (penny size), not the larger ones (close to quarter sized).

Default Aaron

Iím assuming based on the lack of response that the Aaron is probably fake. I found some mid 90s examples that have similar characteristics, but the H does look atypical.
