Hello,
These are coming up at a local auction, any chance they're real?

No chance. Horrible forgeries.

The Mantle is not a "horrible forgery."
It is, in fact, a rubber-stamp signature that the Yankees sent to fans in the early sixties who wrote to Mantle asking for an autograph. (I received one in 1961.)

Wow, would not have guessed. As always, thanks for your insight David, always learn something new everyday here

David,
I thought the Mantle looked like a stamp.
Thanks guys for the thoughts, I will pass on the auction totally.

It seems that these "local auctions" are the latest way for sellers to dump bad fakes.

I think the Aaron is a common secretarial. I got a few of those trying to get him TTM back in the 1970s.
