WLWT-TV’s investigative unit delved into the world of sports autographs in a recent report. Results were not flattering to those taking their chances on eBay.

Some Cincinnati Reds and a former Bengals player were turned off by the number of fake autographs presented to them by Target5 reporter Dave Wagner.
It’s the second investigative piece done this week by local TV stations. Watch the story by New York’s WCBS here.
