Default Ultimate Auctioneers (??)

Does anybody know anything about this online platform by ArtFact? They are holding an auction by Ultimate Auctioneers based out of Vegas and it appears that most of their stuff is fake.

I don't know where to start, but just look at this 1934 Japan Tour signed team ball...just the sig of Lefty O'Doul made me gasp.

And there were others, like the Wahoo Sam Crawford signed Wilson ball...come on.

Interesting...thanks for that, I didn't see it before. Starting bids used to be $1,000, but now are at $50. Amazing how his stuff is still up there...and those FBI forensic letters of authenticity?? wow~~

And at least one fake Scoreboard cert on a 4x6 Mantle.
Yeah right, a 4x6 Mantle, sound familiar ???

I just took a look. Almost everything in that auction has a COA from Chris Morales. Need I say more?

I didn't hear about Chris Morales until I saw these posts. There's a good piece on him from 2011:

Chris Morales is on Ebay's Banned COA list and deservedly so.

That article you refer to was written by me. I have written dozens of blogs, etc., on Chris "I Never Saw An Autograph I Didn't Like" Morales.

My disdain for Morales runs deep.

I first saw those 4x6 photos on that infamous Always site. Of course they originated in Florida.
Who would have paid Mantle all that money to sign 4x6 photos when 8x10's were readily available.
It seemed to me that the forgers were just cheap and used those small photos to save money.
