The "musician- direct" subforum is a great way to acquire autographs from artists we might never meet in person, but it's also a risk because you can never be 100% certain of the authenticity.
This thread is meant to keep a record and overview of confirmed autopens and those where serious doubts have been risen. (Limited to items discussed in this subforum)
This is a start, I'm open to suggestions. If there's no interest in a thread like this I'll remove it.
[book] Bob Dylan - A Philosophy of Modern Song signed edition with LOA
Autopen confirmed by publisher
[book] Dolly Parton and James Patterson - Run Rose Run
[book] Alicia Keys Girl on Fire - Premiere Collectibles bookplate
Autopen not officially confirmed, but without a doubt proven on this forum
[book] Kenny Loggins Still Alright (publisher-bound edition)
Autopen confirmed by publisher, according to B&N.
[book] Dolly Parton - Songteller Deluxe signed edition

The bookplates from Premiere are likely good.

Mariah Carey (All I Want For Christmas cd single)

My Mariah CD wasn't even signed !
Trump sold that book to his followers to raise money when he was running for president that ended up being autopen signatures. Not sure what the book name was.
Wasn`t that the "Àrt of the Deal: 2016 Election Edition"? I think that was the one where they had bookplates in them noting that they were a special edition. He did the same thing with that coffee table book that came out last year too, IIRC.
Weren't the Keith Richards autobiography books autopenned?
Yes they were. I forgot about that one.
I thought they were. Was something I read a whilst ago.
I believe the ones with autopen signatures were sold through his website at a cheap price.
I found this a few days ago:
There was also some ghost signed Tears for fears on Amazon.
Not all the Lil Baby cd's were ghost signed as there is actually a video of him signing some cd's.
