The curious case of Mickey Moniak’s phantom bat

Don’t buy sports memorabilia without having some idea of provenance behind them. Case in point, Mickey Moniak’s comment about a bat, purportedly one of his, on ebay:

The original tweet, potentially soon to be deleted, claims to be selling a game-used, signed Moniak bat.

Since we can presumably place more trust in Mickey than we can some rando internet shysters, the game and signature are pretty definitively phonies.

Case closed.

Except no, because this is the internet.


Luckily, Moniak is a quick thinker and came up with an appropriate witticism.

To which Cozens had only one response:

I love these guys.
