Check out this horrible, 2010 Upper Deck World of Sports fake David Beckham auto I came across on eBay. There's so many things wrong with this shitty attempt at Beckham's signature that it's not even funny. First of all the signature is nowhere near a genuine Becks sig, see below for the authentic UD Man Utd example.
Second of all notice how the "World of Sports" lettering is red on these un-signed base cards pictured below of Beckham and Thierry Henry. There were autographed parallels of these base cards but those had a guarantee of authenticity on the back and the visible difference of "World of Sports" text in blue, as can be seen further down.
The actual certified parallel autos from this set have the aforementioned blue lettering and the sticker auto such as Pablo Mastroeni and Beckham himself who does have an autographed parallel although it does not actually feature his signature on the sticker but rather that of former MLSer Luciano Emílio. See this link for more info on that particular error auto.
Sadly it appears some bidders have fallen for the fast one this unscrupulous seller (ondeckcrds) is trying to pull.
