    Fantastic atmosphere up here at Old Trafford as Australia hit form, closing on a comfortable 303/3 in front of 26.000 sell out crowd.

    Signings will be taking place over the weekend as usual and we expect autographed cricket bats, signed scorecards, sports autographs, and plenty of other cricket memorabilia.

    Michael Clarke had said earlier that Australia intended to make a fight of things and that’s exactly what happened as he lead by example with a splendid century (a series first and MC’s 24 th), completing the tourists best Ashes Innings of the series.

    Controversy was never far away, another DRS umpire driven fiasco when Usman Khawaja was caught behind off Graeme Swann, the tourists sought clarification from the ICC , the general consensus was “not out” a decision referred to by Australian PM Kevin Rudd “one of the worst decisions ever”. It should be noted it went both ways and that each teams received poor decisions but the issue runs deeper when it comes to an individual career being on the line leaving an underlying problem, with the ICC relying on neutral decisions rather than more simply selecting the best available, experienced umpires.

    England bowlers Swann, Bresnan and Broad all bowled well the difference from the first two series was that Aus had regained form and this time were all out to win

    It is strange how sports betting can change ones perspective England are currently offered at 7/1 by Paddy Power and I find it very tempting to take the odds, problem being that I don’t really want to spend the next few days willing the tourists to lose, if they win this match it will be good for the game and encourage more tourist cricket collectables signings!!!!

    Back to the Usman decision it does seem to work both ways as when Smith appeared leg before to Broad the hosts had no referrals left leaving Smith at the wicket ending the day on 70 not out, Clarke on 125 with an unbroken fourth wicket stand of 174

    I will be watching David Warner with interest tomorrow as he comes in at number 6 whenever that may be, great things are expected from him, no pressure.

  • Autographs Real or Fake

    Posted on October 12, 2011 by Selby


    I recently wrote an article rare autographs real or fake and thought this snippet may be of interest, it is obviously not related or implied in any way to the context of my article rare autograhs real or fake but hopefully demonstates the care required in any authentication of sports memorabilia

    Steiner caught in ‘fake’ document dust-up

    Brandon Steiner, who has risen to the top of the cutthroat spo

    rts memorabilia game by selling indisputably authentic balls, bats and autographs, has become ensnared in a legal tussle over, of all things, filing a fake document in a nasty labor dispute.

    A state appellate court yesterday found that Steiner Sports Marketing “submitted a fabricated agreement” with the trial court containing a one-year non-compete clause -- in an attempt to keep a former employee from jumping to a rival company.

    Lawyers for New Rochelle-based Steiner Sports claim the former employee, Steven Weinreb, changed pages of the employment pact and that it was an innocent victim of the switcheroo.

    Facts surrounding the case are admittedly murky.

    Both sides admit Steiner gave Weinreb an employment contract with a one-year non-compete clause. Weinreb’s legal eagles with Kaufmann, Gildin, Robbins and Oppenheim claim he revised it to a one-month deal, signed it and didn’t tell Steiner of the moves.

    In an attempt to keep Weinreb from jumping to a rival, Steiner presented to the trial court a contract containing a one-year non-compete. Oddly, it also found in its files an unsigned contract with a one-month non-compete.

    A forensics expert found that the signature page of the one-year non-compete document matched the first four pages of the one-month non-compete contract.

    Steiner Sports now admits the one-year non-compete contract is a fake -- but claims an innocent reshuffling of the document created the fabricated document.

    However, it was shown before the trial court that the agreement was stapled, ripped apart and re-stapled.

    Steiner Sports partners with the New York Yankees and other organizations to sell game-used balls and jerseys. The company’s slogan is “The Steiner Seal Means It’s Real.”

    The appeals court decision yesterday does not settle the question of who is responsible for the fabricated document. That may be determined at the trial court -- where the appellant panel sent the case for a second look.
