Mr. Schiff: Operation Bullpen. An FBI investigation into phony sports memorabilia...

Ms. Caldwell: "The seizures have exceeded $4.9 million. The value of the forgeries seized exceed approximately $15 million."

Mr. Schiff: That's FBI Special Agent Jan Caldwell in San Diego, California...

Ms. Caldwell: "Through our infiltration, the work of an undercover Agent, the investigation over the last 8-1/2 years, we were able to literally have a warehouse full of baseballs, baseball bats, boxing gloves, jerseys, photographs of celebrities and athletes."

Mr. Schiff: Caldwell says the FBI is now giving the goods to children's charities...

Ms. Caldwell: "We're giving to the community what was taken by scam artists and thieves. And there was never any doubt, from the beginning of this investigation, that this negative would be turned into a positive."

Mr. Schiff: By the way, fake signatures have been removed from the balls, bats, shirts and stuff. I'm Neal Schiff of the Bureau and that's what's happening at the "FBI, This Week."
