Default Re: Score Board Inc & Ken Golden

If the item has a Goldin Sports round hologram affixed to it, it should be rock solid. To my knowledge they were a "direct source", so to speak, as they did private signings to obtain their merchandise.

Scoreboard on the other hand was one of the first company's that provided legitimate autographs as a "direct source". A pre-cursor to companies like UDA, Steiner, etc.. The problem with Scoreboard is that although all the items they sold directly were legitimate, they had no tracking to their items they sold, items would receive only a paper certificate. Since there was no sticker on their items or pictures on the COA's, those with unscrupulous ethics could easily switch items with Scoreboard COA's to peddle fakes. Worse yet the their COA's were easily replicated and sold with forgeries. People took advantage of Scoreboard's name and reputation at the time for ill intentions. To say the least, I just would be careful with anything that comes with a Scoreboard COA.

I would concur with Justin in regard to Score Board.

One thing you see fairly frequent are Mickey Mantle "signed" bats and the occasional "signed" jersey with a Score Board COA.

Mickey Mantle never signed any bats or jerseys for Score Board, only flats and balls. If you see a Score Board COA with either of these, keep on walking.

Question Re: Score Board Inc & Ken Golden

Any of the COA look questionable?
Thanks
