Tug McGraw shouted, “You Gotta Believe!” When someone gets a signature, the postmark may just confuse things. These doubts arise occasionally on www.sportscollectors.net with a “How could he have signed that? He died last week!”

Don’t assume you have a forgery, just because you’ve read the signer’s obituary.
