JSA's website says that they will be at the following places authenticating autographs on June. 24, 2017. 6 locations in 6 different states! Tell me that JSA has 6 teams of experts that know dozens of different genres of autographs? So there is no longer an A and B squad, but a C, D, E and F squad as well?? What is going on? I would have a hard time accepting anything else but the hypothesis that these places are staffed with low wage millenials stickering product at their discretion. World…Read more…

Prosecutors say hundreds of victims bought fake autographs, complete with phony certificates of authenticty on eBay between 2010 and 2015. Clifton Panezich, 30, appeared before a judge in Ohio Mahoning County Common Pleas Court on Tuesday.

Panezich pleads guilty
