    Thanks for posting this since it a HUGE story. A couple years ago I started checking eBay and was seeing cards like this and many others just show up in unbelievable bunches. I didn't know enough to know that the amount was suspicious but the flow of the these cards and like them just continues to stream onto eBay and there is just so much you can believe before you just say there can't be this many autograph vintage cards of guys that died over a half century ago.

    Remember back then people weren't getting cards signed like they were today and even until recently it was still a bit taboo to get a good card signed in person by a star player or rookie. It was just considered ruining the card.

    Thanks for sharing. With dollars to be made there will always be someone willing to rip folks off.

    This story just keeps getting worse and worse. I'm going to say that all of these signed 1952 Topps cards and before are all going to be hit by fakes galore. It doesn't make sense they would just target one or two sets. Anything they can make money on they would try this stunt with and it would explain why I've seen these autographed original vintage cards of more and more guys recently. Just too much was popping up and I'm not even a guy who goes after this market.

    This stuff (for guys who died before the 1980s especially) there shouldn't be such a huge supply of. Autographs of them on cards would have been rare and with stuff like pencil or old crappy pens if anything even existed. Guys who are still around or who died recently I could see people sending TTM or getting them at shows but nobody who died in 1960 is going to have stacks of autographed vintage cards of him popping up all over the place unless somebody is doing the signing for them. Didn't Mickey Mantle comment that Roger Maris signed more autographs after he died than when he was alive?
