    I don't think the "fake" autographs are nearlly as high as what they say it is.

    Most on eBay are legit IMO. I usually compare the signature to one that I know is legit.

    It is true however, that some parents have kids acquire the autographed item & then turn around & sell it.

    My youngest daughter had autographs for the Orioles. She kept the baseball, but when she no longer wanted the team signed poster she donated it to the local Cancer chapter auction. It's all in how you were raised.

    Good job raising her!!! I have bought auto'd memorabilia through charity auctions as well (the last was a Dom Capers signed cap- not very proud of it but no one else was bidding and it was only 5 bucks)

    Rosemary's did better than that. They sent her a thank you card and stated on it the poster brought $255.
