"Which reminds me.  On the first GW Bush book, you were able to write into an address, just supply postage and they would send you a signed bookplate for free.  I did, and affixed it to my book.  Anyone else have a thought on these?…"

"I love how they say, "Reprint - Text will not appear over actual reprinted bookplate." It's like saying to would-be forgers, "Don't worry. We've got your back. Nobody will know a thing!""

Steve Zarelli replied to Mike White's discussion Beware reprinted bookplates
"The first thing that strikes me is the bookplate itself. They are either color copies or high res scans that have been subsequently printed with a laser or inkjet. I am getting a hint from the auction images that they are not that sharp. The…"

James replied to Mike White's discussion Beware reprinted bookplates
"Exactly. Why would any honest person want one of those? So they can stick it in their Ronald Reagan or Bill Clinton book, and say to themselves, "Wow, I've got a really nice faux-signed presidential book!? Now this is how it would look if…"

"Just when you think you've seen the lowest, something stoops lower. It never ends. He is selling reprints of event tickets as well. While this seller is disclosing they are reprints, he may as well make the auction title, "Toolkit to…"

Ian A baldock replied to Mike White's discussion Beware reprinted bookplates
"He does indicate these are reprints. Problem is they will be resold as real by the unscrupulous. Its a cesspool out there. With printers. lasers,tracing etc. its gonna get harder telling fakes . The new 100 dollar bills are already being…"

Steve Zarelli replied to Mike White's discussion George HW Bush
"I have heard reports of his signature deteriorating significantly in the past few years. Given this came from his office, my sense is it is authentic. It is what I would expect from a 90+ year old man with serious health issues. The only other…"

"there is a huge difference between his signatures of 20 years ago, and now, because of his age and disease.  This signature has positive qualities, just not sure if its hand signed."
