Euro Sports Memorabilia Scandal Hits Court

Prosecutors say collectors who paid big money for sports autographs and game worn items through one UK dealer were not getting the real deal. The story is getting major attention in Europe as a trial gets underway.

You may not recognize some of the names, but they’re familiar to fans in the United Kingdom.

Just as it may be tempting for con artists to forge Mickey Mantle, Ted Williams or Michael Jordan here in the States, a similar crime allegedly took on epic porportions over there.

One well-known English dealer is defending himself against some serious charges in a courtroom, with virtually every media outlet in the British Isles covering the story, including the Times of London.
