CLEVELAND - Federal agents investigating fraud in the sports memorabilia business roamed the aisles of the National Sports Collectors Convention for the second consecutive year, issuing subpoenas to hobby executives for auction invoices and other records.

Two agents - one from the FBI, the other from the United States Postal Service - also questioned auction house officials, dealers and authenticators on Friday and yesterday at the National, the hobby's largest annual sports memorabilia show, held this year at the International Exposition Center near Cleveland Hopkins International Airport.

I am glad that the FBI has taken an interest in sports memorabilia fraud. The quicker the fraudsters are found and put out of business/put in jail, the better off all us fans and collectors will be. Thanks for posting that article.
