Some of their stuff is real but I know a lot of their stuff has been proven to be fake or questionable. I Would be very cautious whe buying something with their COA.

If I remember right it was their coa's that would come from the hsn on tv in the early 90s. I've never bought a piece since ken goldin went through a number of lawsuits and company eventually collapsed

That is all I have heard about them also was that through the HSN network. But didn't know anymore.

Actually, their stuff were real, but the COA's were cheap and highly counterfeit. So someone would make mass copies of a COA and then put them with any autograph they saw fit.

They were on the Home Shopping Club on TV.

During the bankruptcy proceedings they also blew out alot of their autos for cheap and stiffed alot of people waiting for merchandise they bought/won before bankruptcy

DUDE, anything SCOREBOARD is real, you know they were grabbing people before UD was grabbing people to sign, people dont know alot about this company, but if you look at the circumstances that the company folded under and then look what happened right after, you can form your own opinion. REGARDLESS yes their COAS were ugly and easily reproduced, but all autographs obtained directly by them were real.
If you do a little more homework you will also be able to see which pieces were involved in signings.

When did ScoreBoard go under? I bought a few baseballs several years ago and they all came with a Scoreboard COA ... the price was very reasonable so I always wondered about their legitimacy.

Autocut is correct. Scoreboard only provided a paper COA that was in black and white and they didn't do anything to provide a link to the paper COA and the item. You will never really know if the COA came with the ball unless you bought the item directly from Scoreboard. I did receive a Willie Mays auto ball in the early 90's from a relative and it passed PSA.

I have alot of baseballs signed by them 9-Ripken And 9-ryan balls from them. and all passsed PSA/DNA...it was a great company until they went under.

Scoreboard had a lot of legit things including classic card company. The coas signed by the fathe Paul Goldin seem to be a lot safer than when the son Ken took over. Be especially careful on the mantle & dimaggios lot of legits but much more fakes. One of the biggest distributers of the product was Smokeys in Las Vegas. During the FBIs "operation bullpen" Smokeys had in their possession the template for the coas as well as the COA stamp and forged many to fill orders etc after scoreboard folded. So in my opinion buying anything scoreboard is a huge risk.
