Default Mickey Mantle Forgery On Ebay. Totally Ridiculous.

Sorry guys, but I had to post this one. Ebay seller "Andrewdrew5479" listed two of the below Mickey Mantle forgery. Looks like a fifth generation copy of an original Mantle photograph with an absolute hideous-looking Mickey Mantle forgery. Also, his title description reads "JFK" when it should be "RFK."

An absolute hideous Mantle forgery.

WOW!!! I can't help but laugh at those...Hideous isn't strong enough. I don't think there's been a word created yet than can describe those properly..

Greg, thanks for asking, but I think my days of doing YouTube videos are over. I think I did close to 200 videos. They were getting redundant. The same stuff from Coach's Corner every month. If I was a viewer of my videos, I think I would have gotten tired of seeing the same crap exposed month after month.

But thanks for asking.

I love the attempt...obviously the "Mickey" part of the signature didn't go too well, so why not hide the "Mantle" part in the upper deck...no one will notice, right???

At least Chris had the picture. One of the most putrid Mickey's out there. Anyone that thinks they can get away w that, and anyone dumb enough to bid on that crap needs to be forced to watch a years worth of Championship Bocce

Pity he didn't also try Kennedy's signature in blue sharpie. That would have been priceless!
