A Southern California-based FBI sting operation has resulted in the arrest of 20 people in five states and the seizure of thousands of fake-autographed baseballs, pictures, T-shirts and other sports and celebrity items. Among the counterfeit memorabilia were items NOT signed by Abe Lincoln, Albert Einstein, Marilyn Monroe, Babe Ruth, Michael Jordan and Mark McGwire, who was among those who helped investigators identify forged goods. Full details of the sting will be announced at a press conference today.
