Default Mantle/DiMaggio/Williams Gateway Cachet Opinions

Looking for opinions on these three autographs before I pull the trigger on a large trade.

Originally came from Jim Stinson.

My only concern is that Gateway sells signed and unsigned versions of each cachet, with the same stamp/postmark. Makes forging these cachets a pretty simple task.

What do you think?

I don't give opinions on autographs because they are just that... opinions, but I'll give you a fact: if an item truly came from Jim Stinson I don't doubt it a split second.

Ok, I'll bite. On a recent post, Travis showed how the T should flow into the L, not just go straight up and down. Also, the last name should not be on a straight line. He was applauded for his post.

The Mantle here has a T that goes straight down, and the last name is on a straight line.

Jim Stinson is my #1 favorite, most trustworthy seller in the hobby. So can someone show me what's up?

"Applauded" for his post on a mass-produced Mantle forgery?

This one is not on a straight line either, no matter how you slice it.

Happy to show specifics on autographs so people can learn.

no, applauded for answering a specific question that is not PSA or JSA related... actually being a benefit instead of divisive on a blog. For the first time in 5 YEARS LOL.

He is good with those pics... and has tons of great info, when he CHOOSES to share and be empathetic, which ain't that often. I welcome the pics and the extra opinions. Especially, when he chooses to try and teach Mantle !~!

These 3 are all good IMHO, for whatever it's worth.
