Fake autographs at charity auctions connected to Coach's Corner

Experienced autograph collectors have known for a long time charity auctions are a minefield of bad autographs. Not that the charity auctions knowingly offer non-authentic items, but rather they are victimized themselves by unknowingly obtaining bad material from dishonest dealers and distributors.

This is a great expose from Fox 19 in Cincinnati that shows the notorious Coach's Corner was the source of many bad items featured in one particular charity auction. The interview features Steve Cyrkin, publisher of Autograph Magazine and music expert Roger Epperson.

As you can see in the report, the reporter traveled to Coach's Corner in Pennsylvania. Coach's Corner owner Lee Trythall refused to be interviewed on camera.
