EDIT title: Mickey Mantle, not hank aaron

Okay, I know times are tough right now but damn... guy just came in trying to sell me a signed EDIT: Mickey Mantle baseball... on a brand new ball... and the ink smudged when I touched it. Come on, really? If you're gonna try and scam, at least find an old ball and let the ink dry.

So how's your day going?

Hank Aaron is still alive and does signings. I'm not saying it was real, but just because it was on a new ball with new ink doesn't mean it was fake.

Still wouldn't buy one without authentication.

**EDIT** Ok, Mickey Mantle...now that's pretty awesome!

Yeah, I screwed it up and fixed it in the body... it was Mickey Mantle... I know nothing about baseball and often get Aaron, Mantle and Ruth mixed up.

I told him he could have at least attempted to let the ink dry before he tried to sell something signed by a dead person.
