Default Yankee Immortals

Here's one more with a strange cert. It's numbered so maybe some have seen this one before? Looked on ebay and this photo is up for sale with many different frames and presentations, none numbered the same way this one is, but the kicker is there are several different COA's for this pic online. One stated it came from The Sports Board, Inc's inventory. This one is all over the place so definitely need the pros eyes on the sigs.

Thanks in advance,
Chris

Scoreboard has an interesting reputation. Since the fraudsters have gone to copying & switching out COAs, I've picked up good Scoreboard stuff up cheap.

Did the proliferation of phony Scoreboard COAs just occur (because of their strong reputation in the past) or was that going on while they were in business?

YMC is just one of dozens of 'Florida" COAs.

They all come from the same source.

The "Scoreboard" items in the previous posts are all fakes with bogus photocopied Scoreboard COAs. Real Scoreboard COAs didn't look like a 3rd generation photocopy.

Scoreboard product was all good. Unfortunately, their very simple paper COAs have been targeted by scammers who copied them over the past 20 years. At this point, I think there are more bogus Scoreboard COAs in circulation than real.

Rocchi and GFA have "certed" hundreds of those forgeries.

Not even hand-penned.

The below is one of those with a "cert" from Rocchi and GFA.

Sold by Ebay seller Spanishcrown360 (a major seller of forgeries on Ebay) for a whopping $102.50.

Tony Podsada used to be associated with score board. He has printed out thousands of fake score board certs. He has also sold millions and millions of dollars worth of forged material.
I would suggest that anything with autographs coming out of the state of Florida and or from GAI stay as far away as possible.

Default Ebay seller Homeplatememorabilia-23 forged signed Mickey Mantle Photo

Here is the absolute latest "Florida" COA.

It's from "new" Ebay seller Homeplatememorabilia-23.

COA, of course, from Home Plate Memorabilia.

Selling the same mass-produced forgeries out of Florida.

Default Ebay seller Boxscorecollectibles Forged Signed Mantle DiMaggio Ford Martin

Another recent and new "Florida" COA is Boxscorecollectibles from Ebay seller Boxscorecollectibles (duh).


http://www.ebay.com/itm/Joe-DiMaggio...p2047675.l2557



Boxscorecollectibles-1.jpg

Boxscorecollectibles-2.jpg




The above set of Mantle, DiMaggio, Ford and Martin forgeries sold for a whopping $59.99.

The recent "Florida" forgeries are, for the most part, hand penned and are simply laughable.

The earliest "Florida" forgeries (certed by Morales, Ted Taylor, Drew Max and Stephen Rocchi) are not hand-signed.
