    Around 2008 or so, 100% legit. By 2016, a lot of fakes started showing up with the holo w/rumor at the time being a former agent stole a bunch of the holos.

    Is there anyway to tell if they were signed before 2009? Must be why these jerseys sell so cheap if they are fakes.

    Not that I'm aware of, so the brand is tainted. Some may be good, others unknown, but without secondary authentication at this point, assume bad.

    I see. Thanks for the info. So, I assume PSA will not grade these. No wonder why there are so many on ebay. People probably purchase them and send to PSA only to get returned ungraded. Then ask for a return on ebay. So sellers are stuck with these worthless jerseys.

    FYI, the jersey itself is a bootleg. No comment on the autograph.

    That sticker sure looks like it has been through the wringer. I would stay away

    Very funny. Most signed jerseys are bootlegs. As long as they look real im cool with the jerseys. Its the signatures that matter.

    As a jersey collector, it bugs me. It's like having his autograph on a fake 52 Topps. Not to mention he never wore that style of jersey anyway :)

    But if it works for you, go for it. Seriously.

    The only thing that bothers me if the player didn't wear that style of jersey.

    Yeah, I hate that, too.

  • I have been collecting Mays autographs since 1985. I have met him on two occasions at shows, which was an adventure in its own right, but overall he was nice to me, but not to others. There are a ton of his autographs on eBay of late, and I’m leery. That is not to say that they are all bad, because I’m not qualified to make that determination. However, Willie Mays can’t see very well, coupled with his age, you would think his autographs would be shaking etc. I see a lot of them on Commissioner Manfred balls that appear very smooth. Further, at shows Willie would charge a fortune to add an inscription, and all I see are baseballs with multiple inscriptions selling for $50. I just wanted to weigh in. I trust JSA, Beckett and PSA DNA, as the true arbiters.
