The “world’s greatest forger” interviewed in ESPN Films: The Counterfeiter

For those in the hobby, this is a great film to see how big the problem of forgery was in the memorabilia collecting world.

Babe Ruth, Mickey Mantle, Mark McGwire, and Sammy Sosa are just a few of the names Greg Marino was able to forge while making great money as he share in the ESPN Films: The Counterfeiter ( http://www.espn.com/video/clip?id=21011515 )

While it would be naive to think this no longer happens today, I certainly hope there’s more safeguards in place to prevent massive forgeries.

Graded cards are just one level of protection but as technology advances, there might be more that needs to be done.
