Drew Max, Forensic Document Examiner, AAU, Babe Ruth Signed Stock Transfer Certificate George Herman Ruth

Here's another beauty I discovered on Ebay.

It's a George H. Ruth signed Stock Transfer Certificate.  It's "authenticated" by Drew Max, who calls himself a Forensic Document Examiner (FDE).  He has appeared numerous times on the Pawn Stars reality show. 

Maybe Mr. Max can explain to me why he "authenticated" the below piece?  It's been over a decade since Operation Bullpen and according to the 2007 SCD interview with Drew Max, Mr. Max…

Autograph Alert Shuts Down

AutographAlert.com has shut down.

The "anonymous" blog site, founded by Stephen Koschal and Todd Mueller in 2005, was reportedly established to counteract the successes of the leading third party authenticators, PSA/DNA and then JSA. But Koschal soon started using it to carry out personal vendettas against a hit list of autograph dealers, organizations and publications, including Autograph Magazine.

By 2008, Autograph Alert became the mouthpiece of the autograph fraud industry.…

American Royal Arts issue

Hi All,

I just joined your group and was wondering if anyone has information I could obtain in regards to lawsuits against American Royal Arts. I reside in Florida and purchased three pieces (signed Beatles items) in 2007. Are all pieces sold in that year forged? I paid $2,000 each and after reading about ARA & Morales, I'm now sick to my stomach. Any info would be appreciated.

I was taught how to convert rejections into sales. Here's a good example of a triumph that could have gone awry.

Harding Park Golf Course in San Francisco, named after the twenty-ninth president of the United States, hosted the American Express World Golf…

Neil Armstrong Signed 8X10 Photograph....Mueller Autographs.....Authentic or Not Authentic

I was checking out a new auction site and stumbled upon a Neil Armstrong signed 8X10 photograph posted by Mueller Autographs.  The starting bid is $2,500.00.  It's been listed for approximately three weeks now with no bids.  According to the item description it is a "1986 signed through-the-mail (TTM)"autograph.

My first reaction, based on 1985 Neil Armstrong exemplars signed TTM, is that the Neil Armstrong, posted by Mueller Autographs, is not…
