Had a lady bring in a SI one time that she had bought at a Swap-meet. She had no idea things were so expensive but she just knew that her son would just love the cover that was autographed by that nice man Harold Aaron.
But could I just remove that mailing label. "I'm sure my son doesn't want any mail that was going to someone with a name like Barny Bondo or something."
I winked and said that for the continuity of the authenticity, the mailing label should stay on.
As I was fitting it later, we had a nice laugh about Barny Bondo....[Barry Bonds].
