Need help in submitting collectibles to authentication companies.

Hey all.  This is my first major submission to an authentication company called "MEARS" and would like to know if anyone has had experience with them.  Also, a general question, if an item fails a company's evaluation, are you entitled for a refund or  are you stuck with it?  I ask this because one of the items I am interested in selling costs $200 for an evaluation and a loss of $200 if it is deemed not authentic would be a huge blow.  Thanks in advance for your time. -Mike

Collecting at Wavy Gravy's Birthday Concert-featuring David Crosby, Graham Nash, Dr. John, Jackson Browne, and more

Tonight at New York's historic Beacon Theatre, a special benefit concert was held in honor of peace activist Wavy Gravy's 75th birthday. An eclectic mix of rock, folk, and blues icons performed in celebration. Naturally, this show presented many opportunities to obtain autographs from the performers.

I arrived at the Beacon around 1:30, right as some of the performers were conducting their sound checks. One of the first notable figures I saw was the birthday celebrant himself. Wavy…

Andre 'The Giant'

Did he sign autographs and what are they worth today?  My kids used to love him and I'd have to take them to the area and watch wrestling.  Andre was my personal favorite.

George Harrison GENESIS signed books Vol.1 and Vol.2

Hi all,

have an enquiry regarding two GENESIS books Songs of George Harrison Vol. 1 and Vol. 2 and hope that in this blog are some experts which have similar books and more experiences.

It's wellknown that both books are limited to 2,500 items with arab numerals but....

Vol. 1 has the low number VII in roman numerals and behind the numbered and signed page is another page reading that there are only 250 items extra for review purposes.

Is it possible or does…

MICKEY MANTLE AUTHENTIC EXEMPLARS... READ ALL ABOUT IT!

I just wanted to post these here to see what Fudd the Lowly Mantle Collector can do to help stop the flood of forgeries into the market place. The goal is that we can all start educating ourselves before we buy. To see what a beautiful signature the Mick had, and to learn to distinguish it from the obvious forgeries at first glance.

REAL AUTOGRAPHS are indeed alive, well and thriving.

We talk so much on these forums about all the fake autographs that are currently in circulation (as we should). However, please know that this is another RECORD YEAR for conventions, book signings, and so many in person personal appearances all in the name of real autographs that are indeed alive, well and thriving.

To Personalize or Not to Personalize

Greetings!

I stated in my first blog that I was just getting back into collecting autographs after about 8 years.  During my first round of collecting, which lasted about 2 years, I focused on obtaining autographs for my wife who was turning the big…

A Simple Solution for Celebs Tired of Being Hounded for Autographs on the Street

CELEBRITIES:  There are two facts that are not going away any time soon.  Fans who want your autograph to keep, and "fans" that want your autograph to sell.

Spare me please while I get you a tissue for all your sob/sob stories of how you are tired of being chased, pursued, hounded, bothered, threatened, harassed, embarrassed, from all those folks that ask you for your signature whenever you stick your nose out your front door for anything from going for coffee or a meal  to letting…
