Mickey Mantle Signed ! LOOKS FAKE TO ME!
Couple of things caught me on this.
First thing i notice is the baseball. It looks like a brand new (non leather) baseball.
Second thing is The "NO.7" ! I've seen about 30 of those with NO.7 inscipted with it and there signed with big letters and he signed them evenly. Kinda looks like a 7 year old wrote that.
The signature looks funky too The first "M" the m seems to come down to far.
Well i hate to accuse people of having fake things but this ball stood out to me. Just letting you guys know if you are thinking of buying it i wouldn't. Even know it has coa. Thanks

I don't see how it is even possible for a brand new ball to be signed by Mantle? FAKE!

Certificates of authenticity are not necessarily worth the paper they're printed on. Anybody can issue a certificate of authenticity but in the end it all boils down to how reputable is the seller, how trustworthy is he?

It doesn't matter how reputable he is, the autograph is fake

I was speaking in general terms, not in reference to the specific Mickey Mantle autograph under discussion.
