‘phew’...Good thing Fake Ichiro cornered the market on fake Ichiro jerseys!
The head of a sports memorabilia company in Minnesota is charged with orchestrating a scheme to sell fraudulent merchandise, including jerseys said to be worn during games by baseball players like Alex Rodriguez, Mark McGwire and Albert Pujols.
Forty-year-old Steven Jensen of Osseo was arrested Thursday at a sports collectors’ convention outside Chicago. He is charged in federal court in New York with mail fraud and wire fraud.
Jensen is head of Minnesota-based Vintage Sports Authentics. Authorities say he and his company over the last four years auctioned off jerseys purportedly worn by major league baseball players during games.
