    I dont think its odd to be using black and blue sharpies. I mean, did they have the paint pens used today back in the 90s?

    I'm not trying to move them, just wanted to get peoples opinions of the autos for him.

    I'm no expert for any of these guys, but figured FCB would know. Now, as far as authenticating, how is that done for 8x10s? Does he mail them into PSA? LMK

    The only real autograph pictured is the Trevor Hoffman. The rest are really bad fakes, especially the Jeters.....

    I am somewhat familiar with the players who signed, but none of them look to be so off that I can say for sure they are fake. In fact, they all look close enough to warrant a expect opinion, in my opinion.

    Start with Jordan. List the picture on eBay with a big BIN so you know it will not sell. Pay the $7 for the PSA/DNA Quick Opinion. If the MJ is real you go from there if it is fake the group may be in question. Many of these are not really worth authentication.

    Go to the PSA/DNA portion of the site and it will be explanatory, but mainly it can be used to pre-screen unauthenticated autos prior to purchase or submission. If you sun the auto the $7 fee is credited to your total.

    I'd follow GC here on this. Sounds exactly right.

    Quick opinion looks like the way to go. Thanks for the heads up. I didnt know this service existed.

    I keep wondering something about the Hoffman, though. It looks like one of those facsimile sigs to me as if there was a Padres hoffman 8x10 photo night sponsored by US bank that included trevor's facsimile sig on it.

    Hopefully by the OP posting it, it means that it was actually done in sharpie and not just printed on.

    IP autos are generally more sloppy than certified autos.

    Not saying they are legit, but not saying they aren't.

    My honest opinion: They're all bad. This looks like something that grandma bought "little Timmy" for Christmas in the mid 90's. She probably wandered into the local hobby shop and Sal the owner pawned these off on her.

    Biggest red flag: The Jordan. Dating to the later part of his Bulls career (XI shoes), he was fully in Upper Deck's grasp. No UD holo, no chance.

    If one is bad, it's likely they're all bad.

    A good portion of those are comical forgeries. For instance the Jeter is a joke. What I find odd is you are saying he isnt moving these, I can tell you I am almost certain that those Jeters where listed on ebay a while back and removed for being forgeries. The reason I remember them is how bad they are.

    As I said a bunch of those are 110% fakes.
