Hi folks - I was going through some old photos today, and in a batch going back to 1986/7 found the attached. I saw Queen twice in 1986, but never met them, and gave no recollection of how this came into my possession. I would have got it in an era where the band were still current, although I suppose that doesn’t preclude forgeries. Would be interested in your thoughts. Thanks.

This is genuine but not from the mid 80s. This was signed around 83. Possibly 82. Rushed, but genuine.

It is unfortunate that it's signed on a ripped piece of newspaper, and would be considered lower value for Fred graphs, but it's not a forgery. 

Hope that helps.

That helps a great deal. The era is interesting, given I only saw them in 86 and can’t remember the origin. My best guess is that a friend I took to Knebworth may have given it to me. I think she was a big fan, and may have seen them previously. Value is always interesting from an academic perspective, but I have no intention of parting with it. Just delighted to own it! Thanks.
