Michael Jackson drawings (Miscell inc. 'Historic portraits' and 'Disney characters')

I'm noticing a sudden influx of MJ signed Michael Jackson drawings coming on to the auction market, which seem to share the common themes of either 'portraits of historical figures'  or 'Disney characters'.

Both of these themes are of course recognised from Michaels' drawings both at a young age and later in life, but it is interesting that so many new drawings are being released on to the market at the same time. 

Here are some current examples:

 Seller Madonna220 from Bangor in the UK is a 'repeat offender' on ebay.com, with very childish drawings that you would think couldn't possibly sell.  But the last one offered (page 102 of this thread) apparently sold for £82 / $106, if the ebay sales info is right and not a faked purchase.

Two more offered at £350 BIN on ebay.com:

MICHAEL JACKSON DRAWING SKETCH DRAWN AND SIGNED BY MJ NOT MADONNA

http://www.ebay.com/itm/MICHAEL-JACKSON-DRAWING-SKETCH-DRAWN-AND-SI...

This is an extremely rare opportunity for the music collector or mj fan. It is an original drawing of a face by the music legend Michael Jackson. Drawings by mj are getting harder to come by now and I am reselling this one due to a non paying bidder. The legend behind smooth criminal, thriller and the moon walk drew this one of a kind drawing of a face, perfect investment or piece for the ultimate mj fan a4 in size. I am also selling one other from my collection of mj drawings. Buy now or make an offer. Good luck and international bidders PayPal only.

MICHAEL JACKSON DRAWING SKETCH DRAWN AND AUTOGRAPHED BY KING OF POP NOT MADONNA
A drawing of a man with a moustache by drawn and autographed signed by Michael Jackson the king of pop. The music legend behind the moonwalk and billie jean and smooth criminal drew this. I am selling two original mj drawings both unique and one of a kind. Comes complete with coa, which states it is damaged in one part but it is a crease on the drawing which can be seen in the photo and should be ok when framed. Overall good condition. Drawings by mj are getting really hard to get now so perfect for the ultimate mj fan or music collector, a good investment a4 in size. Buy it now or make an offer. Only selling two drawings from my mj drawing collection as need the funds. Good luck international bidders PayPal only
The COAs are terrible. How can that be convincing to anyone? I fear this sad situation will be replayed on eBay and elsewhere for a long time coming.

Sadly buyers seem to want to be convinced......and if they don't like the item when it arrives, they can just put it back on ebay as a 'genuine item from their collection', and someone else will likely give them a tidy profit for it.   I'm sure you are right.  There will be no end to this...............

(Photo of first drawing above re-posted as the original did not include the fake 'MJ signature'. 

Lizzie, I call them "delusional autograph collectors."

Sad.

 More from madonna220 of Bangor UK, who seems to be going into 'industrial production' of these fakes.  They could become 'collectors items' for the fake Letters of Authenticity alone, which are possibly unprecedented in their sheer stupidity.

The second drawing has an LOA which mentions 'Banana Boat Authentication'.  In the UK, use of the phrase 'Do you think I came in off the last banana boat / s/he came in off etc etc. is a racist phrase implying stupidity of immigrants, specifically those from the West Indies.  One can only surmise what is (or is not) going on in this forgers mind.
