Default Current Autograph Seekers - Opinions?

Would anyone care to render an opinion on this seller and the autographs they are offering? Even better, if the seller is a memberhere in good standing or someone knows the seller and could vouch for them.

I am not looking at anything expensive, but even at a couple bucks per signature I have kind of lost my appetite for ttm/ip autos of late and I know Florida sellers seem to have developed a reputation for fraudulent activity if they are not known to be otherwise. At the same time, I also know there is spring training there and a lot of people do some serious autographing as well.

I see enough red flags that I would avoid personally. Almost 300 cheap base cards sold "signed" in the past month, with 1,250 more for sale...all 1 cent cards, with plenty of big names. $35 A-Rods/Stantons/Arenados/etc. None of which show massive signs of speed, rushed, etc.

Thanks for the comments. That is enough in my mind these days to pass. They are $3 autos, but I don't need fakes at any price.

$3 signed cards from some of the toughest and best players in the majors wasnít enough of a red flag? How about all signed with mostly the same pen pressure using the same blue sharpie. It would still be a good deal at $20 per card, but once again if itís too good to be true it isnít.

Frankly, I was just looking at Dodgers initially, but noticed Arod and then started to get suspicious. It was Ryu and Bellinger that made me do double takes though. I don't search for these much anymore after the flood of big names appearing on trophy cards in the last decade, but every once in a while, I will check. I don't recall seeing either card signed before. I don't know either's signing habits, but I did at one time heavily collect the trophy cards signed. Would like to believe one or both are real, but just don't want to deal with the risks and have nearly given up on non-certified signed cards now.
