THis isa an OFFICIAL PRODUCT sold by Emerson lake Palmer management
I bought it in 1992...
It was looked at by PSA and DENIED---what does nayone else think
It came directly from a limited edition signing-and I still have the flyer to order the signed Program that was inserted inside the ELP CD BOX SET..
The only issue I see i they signed SMALLER print than they normally sign--but this is smaller than a 12x12 album its appr 7x10
PSA is right
Sorry but these are definitely fakes
Not even close to authentic
Ok- But it was an official product--strange their LABEL sold fakes to the public..a shame... there was a Flyer inserted into the Box CD set that said "limited edition of 295 signed ELP programs order yours today" that sucks..
I can't explain what happened through the official product site
But I have heard rumors of problems there. Some folks were buying stuff that didn't exist and some folks such as yourself got this garbage
Seems there was someone doing some scams or there was an unofficial site set up by someone
I just don't know my friend
But the ones you have are terrible forgeries
Ya it sucks and I feel your pain
I don't know if that site is even active anymore. I tried contacting them a few months ago and got no reply.
would you still have the link to where you actually bought it from?
He bought it in 1992.
Where and how did you buy it? Did you buy it directly from ELP's promotion? Did you buy it second hand?
I'm not familiar with the promotions but some here may be.
Please a copy of the flyer I might know the company

looks all bogus
no way those bad sigs are official merch
too bad you found out now but better late than never
hopefully marc e knows about this place and can shed some light your way
maybe the merchandise was official but the signatures are definitely fake
Totally agree with the CAT. These are actually poor fakes with very little detail paid to them. If they are "secretarial" and "official, knowing how scrupulous Keith Emerson was, he would have gone ballistic.
