I picked this up at a flea market this morning. I won't say what I paid for it, but it was well under market value. I have a generic COA, but that doesn't give me any confidence that this is the genuine article. i'm hoping it is and will send it in to PSA to get authenticated. If it's not, I didn't pay a whole lot for it, so my loss will be minimal. What are your thoughts...is it real or forged? It is definitely not a fascimile auto.

If you are so sure it isn't a facsimile, then why do you have any doubt as to its being real or not?

It certainly could be real as it has a fair bit of the Pujols auto flair.

Good Luck at PSA. ;)

It came at a very low price and the certificate was generic. The vendor never would guarantee that I could return it if I found out it was a fake. I figured it was worth the risk for the price.

Yea... flea markets aren't the best place for refunds and the like. =)

Facsimile means a copy, so it could certainly be a facsimile auto.

Like I said though... it looks pretty good, so you might have picked up quite the bargain. ;)

The auto looks pretty good .... I hope it is the real thing.

Ball would look better if ..China.. wasn't right under his name upside down.

That is the downside. It's just an official League ball, but I won't complain. :becky:

And the Verdict is:

"Questionable Authentication"--which means basically I got taken on a fake. Good thing I didn't pay much for the ball, but overall I go screwed by the time I add in the PSA fee.

I am going to try to get my $$ back from the dude at the flea market, but I'll probably have a hard time finding him now.

Let us know what comes of this. If he doesn't make it right be sure to give us his name and info so we can all know to never buy anything from him.

The guy is long gone. I had a bad feeling, but had to give it a try. It was a very well forged ball. I just got it back yesterday. It was a very fast turn around. Oh well, my kids are playing catch with it now in the back yard so at least some use has come of it.
