Who knows their JENNIFER LAWRENCE?

Started this discussion. Last reply by Glad Max May 2, 2016. 2 Replies

Certainly one of the most forged current stars, I've done some study to recognize the bad ones of which there are many.  But this one?  I'm not so sure.…Continue

Yet another M.J. inquisition!  I know absolutely nothing about the signature or handwriting of the King of Pop but I saw this and thought I would submit to the trained eyes here for scrutiny.…Continue

Glad Max replied to Steve Zarelli's discussion What's new in your collection?
"Mmmm-mmm-Marion!  Another French delicacy for the candy box. Also a nice full sig of Reese Witherspoon who the seller said they got in person in the early 2000's, looks favorable compared to others of the era so I'll go with that."

Glad Max replied to Mike Miller's discussion Charles Schulz ion Todd Mueller's auction
"Unless he drew this with his wrong hand I'd say you are very much on base. Lousy, and even if it somehow is authentic, it's still lousy!"

Glad Max replied to Dane Muramoto's discussion A new (and somewhat odd) eBay rant
"I'm reading "but it won't be as easy for me to deceive you if I provide more information!" as the subtext to his responses."

Glad Max commented on Pete Chuka's blog post A Complete Collection: Is It Happiness or The Saddest Thing Ever?
""It's simple for everybody else, you give them a Big Mac and a pair of Nikes and they're happy."  Such a great movie. The question is, at what point does a collection become an obsession?  I've had several of them,…"

Glad Max replied to Paul's discussion Ebayers please be informed.
"I made one photo sale using the GSP and it wanted to charge $21 to ship from the USA to England.  I thought that was outrageous so I went Han Solo and made my own delivery arrangements.  That was a big risk because eBay only protects the…"

Glad Max commented on Josh Board's blog post Joe Jackson -- He's the Man (just not with autographs)
"He may be a pain in the pants to acquire but at least he dished you out a nice looking graph - well done & good stories!"

Glad Max liked Berol's discussion How long can an autograph be in the open for?

Glad Max replied to Berol's discussion How long can an autograph be in the open for?
"I learned (not the hard way but through research, thankfully) that most hard sleeves contain PVC.  What you can do is put the photo in a polypropylene/Mylar soft sleeve and then put safely in the hard toploader.  Ultra Pro specifically…"

Glad Max replied to michelle's discussion Ingrid Bergman, Arthur Hill and Colleen Dewhurst please
"Pete would know much better than me, but Bergman looks spot on to me also.  Really, who cares about the other two? (ha)"

Glad Max replied to AO's discussion Winona Ryder Real?
"Crazy, I was considering this exact photo and couldn't decide between it and another pose from the same shoot.  Came back a couple days later, this one was gone so you solved my dilemma for me and I bought the other - also with a gift…"

Glad Max replied to GamerGirl's discussion Fake or Real?
"Dido looks real to me."

Glad Max replied to Berol's discussion Worst forgery I have ever seen
"Looks more like a forgery of him scribbling the pen to get inkflow before signing his name."

Glad Max replied to John's discussion Kill Bill signed Poster
""This is me at my most..." what, what?  "Masochistic willow"??   :)"

Glad Max replied to JAKE JONES's discussion Thru the mail autographs....are they legit? Thanks!
"Charlize Theron and Winona Ryder (or more likely their minions) sent these exact photos in response to TTM requests, so the photos are official but unfortunately the signatures are preprinted.  Still kinda cool though, and make for ideal…"

About Me

What kind of member are you? Industry professionals must use their real names and identify themselves as such. (Check as many as apply.)
Collector, Fan
What brings you to Autograph Live?
Help others with authentication opinions, share experience with some sellers, and to get advice from people with more knowledge & experience than me.
Who can we thank for telling you about Autograph Live?
found it myself
What do you collect, or want to collect?
Modern Hollywood and Stage, Classic Hollywood and Stage, Music
Tell us more about your collection, specific areas of interest, etc.:
Quality over quantity, and by quality I mean what appeals to me, not what characteristics someone else says makes for the most valuable. I'm a collector, not an investor, and I get to enjoy my items daily instead of hiding them away.

Mainly collect 8x10 photos signed by my favorite actresses of the past and mostly present. Have some musicians and baseball players but don't actively seek them out.
What is your level of expertise?
Intermediate Collector
What is your favorite autograph in your collection?
Maybe the most special is an Emmanuelle Beart press photo for 'Manon of the Spring' signed around that time using her full first name, and I have only seen one other example since where she didn't abbreviate as 'E Beart'.

For pure attractive penmanship, it's tough to beat Farrah Fawcett's calligraphic script complete with a 'Fond regards' inscription.
Why do you collect?
If I had a room filled with unsigned photos of beautiful women, that would be weird! ;)
You can ask anyone living or dead for their autograph. Who would it be?
Grace Kelly
