    Please don't take this the wrong way. When you have some free time, google "showtime memorbilia autographs". There has been a lot of uproar about them passing off forged autographs. Supposedly there is/was an Ebay seller by the name of "Sportsology2015" passing off forgeries. He is supposedly based out of Florida. Like I said, please don't take it the wrong way, I just don't want you to be in the dark about it. AutographMagazine.com did an article about "Sportsology2015". You can also google "AutographMagazine.com Sportsology2015" and the article should pop up. Like I said, you shouldn't be in the dark about it, you deserve to know what is being said about showtime memorbilia.

    Note the emphasis on the word "OPINION" in the COA.

    An interesting but not necessarily matched group of players. Not sure what they all have in common (Pete Rose is an odd man out, for example).

    To be honest I'd rather have individual 8x10s.

    No idea on authenticity.

    Please do not take this the wrong way either, but those are forgeries.

    I am no expert in autographs but those signatures immediately strike me as being suspect. They are just too neat and don't show differences in pressure as the pen moved across the image.

    Are you guys saying they are pre-prints of authentic sigs on the photos, or forgeries done with a pen?

    An expert in signature authentication would have to make the call ... and I am not such a person. A local Sunday bourse dealer in my area would have been the person to ask. He was a Michigan State Trooper whose specialty was signature authentication. Unfortunately, I believe he passed away several years ago.

    The apostrophe by the A in Mantle is a a giveaway. ;)
