View Full Version : I got a question on a COA for a signed baseball

07-16-2009, 10:12 PM
I recently won an auction on an auto ball by whitey ford and the advertisement mentions the COA and has a pic of the ball on a psa/dna authenticity letter. the pic was so small that I couldnt read it but now that I won it I downloaded the pic and blew it up, and the letter mentions a lot of 19 baseball cards and there is no mention of any ball.
I immediately contacted the seller and asked for some verification on the COA for the ball, I hope he answers soon but the way I feel right now that is not what he was advertised and I did'nt pay for it yet either and am not planning on paying for something that was falsely advertised. I am enclosing some pics tell me what you guys think on this one gang...

Sounds like he gipped you...maybe not though just wait for his response

yah i am gonna wait for his response no doubt but i am kinda miffed that the letter was'nt correct to the item he is selling. as far as getting gipped, i did'nt pay for it yet and wont pay for this until i get satisfied on the COA.
by falsely advertising this item he would look dumb trying to justify his side of deal in an ebay dispute imo..

has anybody had an experience like this before? i hope this kind of thing is not a common occurance. to be honest this is the 1st time it ever happened to me..

Dont pay till you are happy.

oxxon i totally agree bro. the seller just emailed me and acknowledge that it was the wrong LOA/COA and said he will find the correct one and email a pic of it so i am waiting for that to happen before i pay for it..

He had to jip you. That doesn't even look like his signature.

the James Spence signature doesn't even look real...Good luck!

I hate to say this but I agree with Jeter+ArodfAN....That particular sig does not look good to me. I own two of his sigs and am attaching them for you to reciew and make your own judgement.

This is my auto'd jersey w/ TriStar authenticity

An upper deck pack pulled auto 05 UD Hall of Fame

I am no autograph expert, but the sig on that ball does not give me a good feeling personally. Adam

the Whitey Ford ball is a good 1980's version of his sig

guys he claims he could'nt find the COA so the sale was cancelled by me. Real or not, I am not touching this situation cuz I think the trust factor is totally gone and now he says he cant find it which is even dumber imo..

Smart of you to cancel the sale, no need to waste money on a questionable auto. Just FYI, PSA/DNA is no longer doing "auction house" LOAs any more. These LOA's would usually cover a large lot of items, and fraudulent sellers were copying them and using them to sell fakes.

Here's a link to PSA's release about the cancellation of Auction LOA's:


IMO, this is a good move by PSA and is just another step in stopping the fraudsters out there.

the ball looks pretty close to what the other sigs look like, you gotta realize its the difference between a round object and flat surface, now atleast he didnt pay for said item
