Default I'm giving Roach's a B- for effort here

A Ty Cobb check made out to AL Capone with a stopped payment stamp. Is all the effort really worth what they are getting paid? Coach's Corner never ceases to amuse me. They are the Monty Python of autograph forgers without a doubt.

My goodness...that's genius. So is it know safe for us to assume that Cobb was connected to organized crime...Roach does it again!

I may have to add it to the other two Cobb checks I have written to Abe Lincoln and Kim Kardashian. That is good effort though...................

They have a phone number. Has anyone actually tried calling them? I thought about it since I could always use a good laugh..

And someday when Bubba (6'6" tall) is their cellmate will they tell him to **** off? I doubt it .

Stop payment on an Al Capone check? Where's Charles Bronson?

I had not realized there is a new CC auction up for perusal. Has Chris Morales always been billed as a "former U.S. Secret Service forensic science expert" or is that a new qualification?

Among the items I am especially fond of:

* The .400 hitters custom signed and framed display piece. Estimated value of $25,000, but currently sitting at $193.

* The $55 George Washington cut signature.

* Eddie Plank single-signed baseball for $141.

* Sliding Billy Hamilton single signed baseball for $66.

* Sam Thompson single-signed baseball for $142 (appears to have been signed yesterday).

*Honus Wagner autographed baseball for $36.

*Christy Mathewson signed baseball for $64.

*Josh Gibson autographed baseball for $50.

* An emerald stone appraised at $8,000 for $68

* Abraham Lincoln vintage cut for $44.

* Geronimo vintage cut for $33.

* Cuts of all four Beatles for $33.

*John Clarkson autographed cut for $208 (Holy ****, that is expensive compared to most of the other autographs in the auction)

* Dollar bill signed by both Malcolm X and Martin Luther King Jr. for $44 (An absolute steal, since this item may actually be worth the $1 face value of the dollar bill).

* John Lennon signed photo for $26.

* Grover Cleveland Alexander autographed photo for $32.
