Not real in my opinion.
Brick, do you have known good examples you could post here? I would love to see them. I have none.
Everybody gives their opinion on this site which is fine but I like to see it backed up with facts and to be quite honest I know very little about Elvis signatures.
its pretty bad
The 'Y' is all wrong... Elvis finished off his letter with a straight line at the top of the loop... and it just looks too clean (as in trying too hard to be neat) to be real... and the small "c" in Christmas leads me to think not real. Elvis respected his Christian faith too much to ever non-capitalize the word Christmas. My Ray Charles autograph looks better... kevin
Do you actually have a Ray Charles autograph? I have never seen one before that people thought was authentic. Alot of forgeries but never an authentic one. i believe i heard where the owner of a theme park got something signed by him but that was it. I would love to see a scan of it as that would be amazing. i am definetly envious!
Ray Charles once approached for an autograph said 'I dont ever sign anything I cant see'. That about sums it up.
These are mine and were both taken face-to-face with Ray Charles and were signed by him. They were taken in May 1963 in Birmingham UK where Ray Charles was doing a show. I've got one on the back of a promo card and the other is in a end-of-year edition (1962) of New Musical Express and it contains another 70 autographs (taken through 1963) of other stars of the day. My friend Paul got his autograph direct from Ray who signed it for him. Paul was 14 at the time and I only guess because they were kids he agreed to sign. Paul recalls his manager/assistant guided his hands to the item and then Ray signed.
IMHO not authentic.
The Elvis Presley was authenticated by one of eBay's approved authenticators.
Just a shot in the dark here, but GA? There are so many terrible autographs for sale on eBay with GA certs.
