I just bought this at a garage sale today for $10. I just was hoping to authenticate the signature or find out a great place to go for authentications. I'm pretty sure the signature is newer than the…Continue

Sorry I wasn't able to finish my thought. The thing Frederick is that in this day and age people are able to minipulate anything to what you want it to be so like you said about having a photo well I could like I said forge one sell it on ebay and guess what nobody would be the wiser. That is why you should do HW when you think you want to buy a diecast from somebody on ebay that is already signed. ask a question like when did the person sign it. does that person offer back their money if they are not satisfied. has this person sold any other items till that point and what has that person sold. believe me I've sold many diecast, sheetmetal on ebay without any issues of somebody saying oh thats a fake. Hell if I wanted to sell fakes I could sell J. Johnsons diecasts all day long. All it's is two loops and maybe dots to signal those are dots on the i's. believe me its not hard to forge that and if I have a photo showing it signed an original one and I'm selling a fake then who's to say what is real and what's not. Hell even Carl E signiture is what a bunch of circles also. look at brad K's now. he used to sign it as brad kes. now its brad K. bet I could forge that one also.

Hey Frederick, I wasn't able to get picture of Jr signing the diecast. The reason for it I own a SLR camera which for me takes 2 hands to operate and since he was heading out for drivers intro I also had some other people infront of me be it either security or another driver and I wasn't in a real good spot being near the corner and not having someplace for the drivers to sign it and get a picture of it. If I was able to get a picture with him siging it then I would have taken it. I do that with all my diecasts/sheetmetal/hero cards/photo's I get signed. But, you bring up a good point though and about taking a photo but in this day and age alot of the drivers PR Guys/Gals want to keep the line moving like hearding cattle. I don't know if you have been to a Indy race but they are the same way. The drivers have only 1 hr and if they sign for 100 people then that is all they do but they want you to keep moving so they can maybe get another 50 through. I will upload a photo of Juan Pablo's cars I got signed Sunday but I couldn't hold my camera and 2 diecast at the same time so I was only able to get a body shot after I set things down outside of the autograph tent does that mean those are not legit?. Same back in June I had kurt sign a diecast and a photo I took of his car from fri's qualifying. Now in the photo it shows him signing these folks before me's T's they thought last min about getting their stuff signed before me but he signed my photo first and then the shirts then my diecast but as normal the handlers are rushing you through so I wasn't able to get another photo of him signing the diecast. Like you also mentioned about the $1 photo well as the old saying goes a photo is like a 1,000 words but even then I could go out and lets say find a replacement Kevin H diecast from my collection forge it take one of my pictures showing the same car and say yeah here is a Kevin H car autographed by him with him putting pen to car and couldn't I say its legit also from your analogy of well the diecast has a photo showing him signing it then it must be real even though I forged it.

 Michael Bartow, Please tell me you took a picture of Dale Jr. signing that nice expensive diecast.

I apologize to Micheal Bartow!!! I am just useing his post to bring up this subject. In no way do I want to tarnish his name, someone I don't even know. I am sure he did get a picture of the signing. 

I see this kind of posting on EBAY & FACEBOOK all the time. But this is Autographed Magazine Live, and I can't believe with all the controverses of forgeres,  that I would still see people posting autographs that they say they have obtained with no proof here.

I have been a autogragh hound for over 30 years and for every autograph (over 4,000) I have always taken a picture of that driver/celiberty signing either at a sit down, in the pit, or on the run because in these days of technology (I phones) there is no better way to authenticate an autograph than taking a picture at the time of the signing of the item. Now days, to me, if the autograph does not come with a picture, then it is not real. Besides, I think it makes a better display and post.

I heard the old arguement, I don't need to take a picture for proof, this is going into my own personal collection. But, In the future, you, or after your gone, someone down the road will have to sell that item. I just like knowing that my family will get top dollar for my collection when I am Gone and not have to pay a authenictor $50.00 a autograph just to say it is real when a $1.00 picture could have done the same thing.

Just think, If people would have had I phones since the 13th centuty and painters would have had a picture taken of themself signing their art work, their would be no reason to have authenicators, just a thought.

I apologize to Micheal Bartow!!! I am just useing his post to bring up this subject. In no way do I want to tarnish his name, someone i don't even know.I am sure he did get a picture of the signing.

hey gang. been a while since I last posted. got some good autographs last yr and this yr. here is a dale jr autograph that I got signed by him prior to driver intro for the Pocono 400 race earlier this month which he also won by brad making the small mistake of trying to clean his grill by drafting up on danica. I will try and post next week some kevin stuff I got signed on thurs prior to the race weekend at pocono when he did a autograph session for wegmans in easton pa.

Got this signed today at Matt Kenseth's Fan Club store.

Comment by Alex Westgerdes on May 22, 2014 at 11:51pm

They only had two sessions because they cancelled the final session due to the bad storms that hit the track at 4 PM.  But to get 21 out of a possible 21 drivers in both autographs session, with multiple handouts signed of several drivers, made it a great success.

Again, thanks for looking, Alex

Wednesday I went to the Community Day signings at IMS.  They had 31/33 drivers there signing...the drivers they were missing weer Townsend Bell and Kurt Busch.  (Insert expletive-laden comment about not being at Indy when you at a victory dinner for your team for a win you had ONE MONTH EARLIER!!!)

Here are the highlights of the sessions:

First session:  Signed handouts of Tony Kanaan, Scott Dixon, Ryan Hunter-Reay, James Hinchcliffe, Charlie Kimball, Ryan Briscoe, Pippa Mann, Justin WIlson, Carlos Huertas, Ed Carpenter, and JR Hildebrand.  That's right...I got all eleven drivers!

Second Session:  Signed handouts for Juan Pablo Montoya, Helio Castroneves, Will Power, Sebastian Saavedra, Carlos Munoz, Marco Andretti, Oriol Servia, Graham Rahal, Buddy Lazier and James Davison.  But I also two other items signed as well:

autographed 8x10 of Buddy Lazier with his car number and "Indy 500 winner" inscribed on the photo.

and my only signed diecast this year...Autographed 2007 1:24 Texaco COT of Juan Pablo Montoya.

Thanks for looking, Alex

Some of my additions from Vegas.  Unfortunately the Gordon was rushed on pit road, but still a nice success!

So I found out this week that I will be getting HOT passes for either the August Michigan race or the Cup weekend at Chicagoland!  The only hard part will be figuring out what to take, and how to carry it all.  My wife hasn't decided whether she wants to go or not.  She doesn't have the passion for collecting Autographs like I do.

My newest additions from the World of Wheels show in Chicago yesterday.
