All 3 are fake
Oh, wow. Can you explain what I need to look for? Maybe post some legits?
allways check here before buying. star wars is extremly heavily forged. you came to the right place though mike and pete are the people to talk too.
Yeah, I tend to trust folks too easily. I've been buying for over a year (a bunch are signed Topps cards that are legit) but I just found this site and will totally be making use of it. But I want to learn how to see a forgery. I've seen that Pete is very knowledgeable and any input he or anyone else can offer would be great. THANKS!
topps can be forged too.
over 90 percent of items on ebay are fake so you better start showing everything here.
Topps Masterworks can be forged too? How does that work? Heavy cardstock and a high end printer? I also have a few from other lines...I guess I'll have to post pics of my entire collection on here...
And where else to purchase?
This is probably my favorite piece of my collection, mainly because I have a cool story to go along with it. I assume it's legit, but that isn't my question. Has anyone seen another pic like it and what's the story behind it. I've looked and haven't seen one like it.
When the Men Behind the Masks tours really took off in the middle 90's all the main Star Wars convention signers were left on their own to have photos or prints made to offer for sale at their convention tables. Some of them just got images from Lucasfilm that individually they were able to reproduce as needed. Others had these photoshopped multi combination images made up and produced for sale at their tables.
Some did not sell well and were never reprinted. Dave loved the images of himself on the photo and continued to make images with his photo overlayed on Vader images until a few years ago. They were available directly thru him on his website and at signing shows.
Many Star Wars fans really disliked these images and made him aware of that fact, by not buying them.....selling images trumped slapping his image on everything.
I love it. I think it's really unique. And I got it for next to nothing. It's my favorite just because it is so different.
Thank you so much for dropping your knowledge on me!
I actually thought about trying to do a customer Vader action figure with his face. Lol!
I believe I have the exact same photo. Mine came from Celebrity Autographs of Southern California probably 20 or so years ago.
Awesome. I found mine on eBay through a seller that does estate sales. Most of their stuff is high end stamp or coin collection that sell for ten (thousand) to hundreds of thousands of dollars. I stumbled up in it looking through their stamps and realized that I couldn't find it in a search. I figured that it had been mis labeled some how. The shipping was more than the winning bid. I think I paid $35 for it, framed and all.
