Forgery Alert: 2001 Fleer Genuine Willie Mays Names of the Game

All of the 2001 Fleer Genuine Willie Mays Names of the Game Auto Uniform were in the Sy Berger collection (unsigned). http://www.robertedwardauctions.com/auction/2010/966.html . As quoted from the auction, “5) 2001 Fleer Genuine Names of the Game –
Autographed Card (no card number, never issued). 102 cards total, NONE of which are signed by Mays, each in Mint condition. This card, which includes an
actual swatch of cloth from a Willie Mays game-worn jersey, was never issued in the set and is exceedingly rare. Prior to the discovery of these 102 cards, only
two other examples had ever surfaced. According to The Standard Catalog, twenty-two players were included in the set; however, it is not known how many cards were distributed for each player.”

Apparently, the forger didn’t get the memo. The card appeared on eBay, but later taken down by the seller. http://www.ebay.com/itm/2001-FLEER-NAMES-Of-THE-GAME-WILLIE-MAYS-AUTO-GAME-JERSEY-/151024388776?pt=US_Baseball&hash=item2329c14aa8&nma=true&si=4xjonHbI0RvIT%252BwVFm%252FENmtWoTk%253D&orig_cvip=true&rt=nc&_trksid=p2047675.l2557 .
