Willie Mays Did Not Sign For The 2001 Fleer Stitches In Time Set

FreedomCardBoard.com has a really nice piece written up about the 2001 Fleer Stitches In Time set.  This Negro League driven set is one of the best out there and is undervalued in the hobby today.  The set consists of inserts, relics, and autographs.

One thing that can not be reiterated enough is that Willie Mays never signed the cards Fleer printed for this set.  Mays doesn’t like to sign items associated with the Negro Leagues.  I guess Fleer just thought Mays would sign them so they printed the cards up anyway.  The worst thing that could have happened, was having these unsigned cards find their way onto the secondary market.  It leaves the door wide open for counterfeiters.

This is an example of the unsigned card that found its way out.  Its just sitting there inviting a counterfeiter to forge the autograph.  Not only does it have the blank area for the signature, but on the back is the Fleer COA.

This is a perfect example of a forgery.  Some poor collector recently purchased it for $125.00.  In my opinion, the last name looks nothing like “Mays”.

I own a Willie Mays 2001 Fleer Stitches In Time relic, and its one of my favorite cards in my personal collection.
