  • Ringo Starr disses on Bogus Guitars

    In a November 2015 interview of the now 75 year old former beatle;    What is interesting is the signature statements and how many of these bogus guitars are floating around!

    What I Know Now: Ringo Starr

    Brotherly loss

    John [Lennon]'s death in 1980 was very hard. Barbara's kids called us in the Bahamas and told us he'd been shot. He was my brother, so we rented a plane and flew to New York. In 2001, I went to see George [Harrison] in…

  • Its been 10 months since Roger Epperson gave a FREE authentcitiy review; I bet he wished he did not. What are the chances that the first one out of the gate was a complete disaster?? He keeps proving himself over and over again... as a nonexpert.

    A fool paid Roger $15 for his opinion on this Mccartney autograph.  Roger wrote back says that it was NOT AUTNENTiIC!

  • Boxing Authentication - WBC Authentication

    Rec'd this update the other day but was on vacation.  Good for Travis.  In this role, however, he will need to call the shots 
    regardless of who has the boxing item to certify! He did an excellent job here on outting tens of thousands of dollars of
    forgeries on EBay and didn't focus just on PSA/DNA or JSA (or as Travis likes to refer to them as abc or xyz) that included
    Florida Forgeries & the likes of GSA & others. (p.s. I have the full threads that were removed when Travis felt it was time to get away from this site). Nonetheless, he made a believer out of me in his knowledge and I would be the first, until proven
    otherwise, to promote you stop there before shelling out hard earned money. Will a mistake be made? No doubt but I can
    say he saved buyers on EBAY well over $100k in fraudulent items (at least at that time).



    We are proud today to announce the grand opening of an original autograph authentication service dedicated…

  • 2nd Nirvana same day of signing

    Here we have another Nirvana autograph set that was signed the same day and time of the yellow index card in my previous blog. Kurt has run out of ink. Again we see David writing the word autograph. I own both of these and in person you can see that the aging of the index cards appear to be of the time period........

The link above shows a good example of David's handwriting and notice how he groups the gr in grohl and the gr in autograph. The shape of his letters is dead on. I welcome your opinions but please have a clue about nirvana autographs before you do. Thanks!

  • Hello everyone. Happy to be a part of this forum. On my 60th day my son gave this as a gift. I love it and I thought I might want to have it authenticated and graded by PSA/DNA. He got this autograph in trade and I was told it was 100% real. Well, As you might know It will cost $250 to have it authenticated by PSA( real or not). I not sure that It's totally real. I have some reservations the (i)'s in Jimi. Did he ever not dot his i's ? or are they to small to see. It seems that he just touched it with the pen. I would appreciate any help from anyone. I hope It's real. It's something I can pass down to my grandchild. I'm a big Hendrix fan. Saw him at the Singer Bowl in 1968.Thank you all.…

  • Professional Autograph Authentication Service
     
    Mike Frost of the newly ressurected P.A.A.S. has apparently  joined the "dark side" of the hobby and is bent on attacking many persons well known in the autograph business. Frost is known for many years to be in some financial difficulty.  He has a habit of stating lies about his competitors and has not long ago blasted a person named Roger Epperson.  Many hurtful and ugly statements were posted by Frost on different internet sites about Epperson, Including the IADA-CC website that he claims to NOT own. Epperson sued Frost and Frost posted an apology stating he "appologize's for false and…

  • Sometimes it’s tough to determine who is honest when asking for assistance. Many times there are shady individuals who have no interest in hearing your opinion or the truth on any matter. Instead they just want to use your free opinion to hit you over the head with it. It makes sense especially after they purchased the dud but why even ask?

    Three or four days ago a Tony Bonich contacted me by email asking for my opinion on the authenticity of the Bob Dylan autograph shown below. I ignored him. A couple of days later he emails me the following;

    I decided to look into it further since he was persistent. I noticed the signature was one of the easier exemplar’s to forge, basically in block scripted writing. Even a novice forger could probably produce…

  • Kookie Kooke; lend me your comb!    Efrem Zimbalist Jr., the son of famous musical parents who established his own lasting celebrity in two of television's most popular series, "77 Sunset Strip" and "The F.B.I.," died Friday at age 95.

    Zimbalist died at his Solvang home in California's bucolic horse country, said family friend Judith Moose, who released a statement from his children Stephanie Zimbalist and Efrem Zimbalist III.

    "We are heartbroken to announce the passing into peace of our beloved father, Efrem Zimbalist Jr., today at his Solvang ranch," the statement read. "He actively enjoyed his life to the last day, showering love on his extended family, playing golf and visiting with close friends."

    Zimbalist's stunning good looks and cool, deductive manner made him the ideal star as the hip private detective ferreting out Hollywood miscreants in "77 Sunset Strip," which aired from 1958 to 1964.…

  • Mickey Rooney now belongs to the Ages

    "I've been married so many times, I'm the only guy you know that has a marriage license made out 'to whom it may concern,'" Rooney once said.

    An original triple threat; A Hollywood survey once asked many stars of who they had worked with that they felt had the most talent.  Mickey Rooney's name came out on top.

    Rooney was born Joesph Yule Jr. to vaudeville parents; he started in silent films at the age of 6. Talkies followed, including a 20-year-run playing an all-American boy-next-door named Andy Hardy, whose first obsession was an all-American girl-next-door Judy Garland, including "Babes in Arms" (1939), "Strike up the Band" (1940), "Babes on Broadway" (1941) and "Girl Crazy" (1943). They went on to star together in other musicals as well. Call it chemistry, call it movie magic.…

  • EBay Boots EMRs from EMR Program

    It would appear that EBay has a strategy shift which was undefined.  I muse if it will be based on selling more forgeries or even predicated that NOONE, except they, can remove a forgery with a cert on it by PSA/DNA, JSA or other accepted TPAs. 

    Many of the EMRs, if not all of them as I understand, received this unsigned form letter as appreciation for the thousands of hours of work they have put in.   Adding more insult is the Have a wonderful time shopping and selling on eBay! 

    Just coincidence that this action comes on the heels of John Gonzale's statement on the state of the EBAY fraud Unit & PSA/DNA, perhaps!   However, since brooke jackson took over the CIT has gone down hill culminating in the move of it's central function from Utah in the US to the Ireland EBAY.  Maybe they are employing AFTAL as part of this new strategy.…

  • As you read this a "The White House" card with a three word sentiment and signature of John F. Kennedy is being offered on eBay for a bid of $700 or a "Buy It Now" price of $1,000.  The ebay item number is 261389626324.
     
    The seller is listed as "franceskka14"  in the New York area and has no feedbacks.
     
    This item comes with a full Letter of Authenticity with the usual signatures including Steve Grad. Grad is the one who states he uses electronic microscopes and other equipment to be able to be able to "sniff out the imitations".

     
    Problem is the three word sentiment and signature of JFK is a printed facsimile. These cards do come on…

  • Fake NY Giant Game used at center of Lawsuit

    So much for game used if these allegations prove to be accurate.  Pictured is sitting in the HOF and is suppose to be an Eli Manning Game Used Helmet from his 2008 superbowl.  Claims that NYG equipment manager, Joe Skibba, was involved with others in doctoring game used equipment.   Steiner Auctions, who at this time, are not involved in the scheme are alledged however to have sold many pieces thru their auctions to unwitting buyers.

    according to the NY Post page 6's  Kaja Whitehouse
