FRAUD ALERT!! Auctions A Dumping Ground For Forgeries?

You didn't know had auctions or carried Sports Cards and Memorabilia? Either did I until tonight. Sports Cards is one of my daily Google Alerts I receive and one of the links directed me to a listing on the sight under the subcategory:

Home > Sports Cards & Memorabilia > Cards > Football-NFL > Other > Uncertified Signatures

Well it was obviously the "Uncertified Signatures" that caught me researching various listings on the site. For example, how is it this seller has managed to obtain in person autos of some truly dynamic pairings and has dozens of them?

Or this piece? Which I would LOVE to own were it not for its dubious COA from ProSignedSports.

Now I am admittedly not the expert at spotting forgeries that Gellman from Sports Cards Uncensored is, but I do know that the age old saying, "If it looks to good to be true, it probably is?" carries tremendous weight when it comes to autographed items.

What do you guys thinks?
