Falcons first round pick tried scamming a football card company?

Panini a sports card company wrote a post on their blog announcing that some of the cards signed by Falcons First Round Pick Takkarist McKinley’s autographs are not real/authentic.

They said the inauthentic autographs were discovered by “extensive research and working closely with McKinley’s representatives,” and that the company would exchange the cards for ones guaranteed to be authentic.

“While this is an extremely unfortunate situation, Panini America officials have agreed to work with McKinley and his representatives to rectify the issue by offering to replace any McKinley autograph cards from the aforementioned products with versions featuring authentic McKinley signatures.”

This makes no sense to me, because Panini sends the stickers to the players. The player then signs them and returns them to the company. They do not make you sign in front of a proctor. Nothing, so I am sure more than one player has did this.

Remember some of the players get anywhere from 2.50 to 5.00 an autograph. So this is not just a player signing autographs, this is a scam to gain funds.
