Some of you know me, and from what I understand, someone caught selling yet another bad Ford autograph has once again, decided to spout off at the mouth. Claims that I am a dealer and I only tell unsuspecting autograph buyers that their item is fake so that I can sell my own Harrison Fords. Again I am hearing claims that the likely supplier of the forgeries is the true expert on Harrison Ford autographs.
Side note the seller sent me a friend request message yesterday with the single question about if I knew a particular collector. In my world this says plenty, and likely tells me where the piece originated.
When I tell people that I track the sale of Harrison Ford autographs, I am not kidding around, I watch sales here, I watch sales on rebelscum and on ebay and other online auction sites.
Who signed them? Who is the forger? I am not going to play games and point fingers, nor will I even guess if the supplier is the forger, all I can do is put together where they came from.
I will give the people that have had these in their possession, that courtesy. They can come clean about where they got them as the "in-person" and "private signing" stories fall apart.
This is the same courtesy I tried to provide to Marc Moser, the last guy caught in a huge Ford Forgery mess. He decided to drag my name thru the mud for a few months as well, but by doing that he just shot himself in the foot. People will wake up sooner or later, and the truth does come out.
I present these images to you, again supplying the signatures and letting the people on this forum and others as judge, you decide the truth. You will also be the deciding factor if these autograph professionals keep their reputations or if they have earned brand new ones.
Every item below has been tracked to the most recent seller, and through his own admission the source of the autographs, I will also include items sold elsewhere by the supplier who admitted on these very pages to supplying some of these.
The pattern is pretty clear to me.
As for the recent claims about me being a dealer, out to only hurt other peoples supposedly reputable business.
Please keep in mind, that anyone that has purchased anything at all from me in the past 5 years has approached me. When they do I usually point them in other directions and offer to authenticate (for free) any item they ask about, from any other source.
Bobby nailed it, the same forger has been signing these and JSA just keeps stickering them. Been going on now for quite some time.
JSA is now equal in every way to GA and GAI when authenticating modern celebrity autographs. It's a damn shame they have access to JD and don't use him.
J.D. Bardwell is one of the owners of Autograph World LLC, he is one of the first UACC Registered Dealers, and certainly one of the "Good Guys" in the autograph dealer category. He is listed as the modern celebrity autograph expert consultant on JSA's website.
I know JD, I consider him a friend, and he has been a dealer in the field of celebrity autographs for decades. He knows what's real and what isn't. In a case that he is even remotely questioning an autograph, he has direct access to some of the best in-person collectors on the planet, and if it is SW related he knows I am a phone call or an email away.
If JSA keeps doing it themselves in FL or NJ without contacting him (I believe he lives in ME,) how will they ever get it right?
J.D. is above reproach.
That is a seriously rushed Ford, not at all pretty but it is authentic.
thank you for your comment ! I hope it is a real one. have a lovely day.
