SANDY KOUFAX AUTOGRAPH COLLECTORS THROWN FOR A CURVE

FAKE SANDY KOUFAX AUTOGRAPHS AND UNLICENSED COLLECTIBLES
FLOODING SPORTS COLLECTIBLE INDUSTRY BY WAY OF INTERNET & CHARITY AUCTION SITES  AT ALARMING RATE.
Harlan Werner , longtime agent for Sandy Koufax , is concerned at the alarming number of fake Sandy Koufax autographs that have hit the market place . “Third party authentication companies do their best and their services are opinions, ” said Werner.  “E ach company uses experts to review the item and render their opinion.   Having worked for Sandy for nearly 30 years, I am quite confident that we have a better understanding of his autograph than any third party .  Collectors should be  especially  concerned with jerseys, photos and single signed baseballs that have a hologram with GAI /Global Authentications  on them. Along with the flood of fake autographs , there are numerous unlicensed items that have infringed on Koufax’s trademark being sold through online auction sites. ”
Werner  and his company Sports Placement Service Inc., previously represented Muhammad Ali and he assisted the FBI in the late 1990’s  to help stop the flood of fake Muhammad Ali autographs being sold into the market place, which was documented in the book , OPERATION BULLPEN.
