Some of you know me, and from what I understand, someone caught selling yet another bad Ford autograph has once again, decided to spout off at the mouth. Claims that I am a dealer and I only tell unsuspecting autograph buyers that their item is fake so that I can sell my own Harrison Fords. Again I am hearing claims that the likely supplier of the forgeries is the true expert on Harrison Ford autographs.
Side note the seller sent me a friend request message yesterday with the single question about if I knew a particular collector. In my world this says plenty, and likely tells me where the piece originated.
When I tell people that I track the sale of Harrison Ford autographs, I am not kidding around, I watch sales here, I watch sales on rebelscum and on ebay and other online auction sites.
Who signed them? Who is the forger? I am not going to play games and point fingers, nor will I even guess if the supplier is the forger, all I can do is put together where they came from.
I will give the people that have had these in their possession, that courtesy. They can come clean about where they got them as the "in-person" and "private signing" stories fall apart.
This is the same courtesy I tried to provide to Marc Moser, the last guy caught in a huge Ford Forgery mess. He decided to drag my name thru the mud for a few months as well, but by doing that he just shot himself in the foot. People will wake up sooner or later, and the truth does come out.
I present these images to you, again supplying the signatures and letting the people on this forum and others as judge, you decide the truth. You will also be the deciding factor if these autograph professionals keep their reputations or if they have earned brand new ones.
Every item below has been tracked to the most recent seller, and through his own admission the source of the autographs, I will also include items sold elsewhere by the supplier who admitted on these very pages to supplying some of these.
The pattern is pretty clear to me.
As for the recent claims about me being a dealer, out to only hurt other peoples supposedly reputable business.
Please keep in mind, that anyone that has purchased anything at all from me in the past 5 years has approached me. When they do I usually point them in other directions and offer to authenticate (for free) any item they ask about, from any other source.
My "JSA Forgeries" folder is larger than my authentic examples folder.
That Ford/Lucas dual 11x14 that JSA certed is authentic. I witnessed both signatures on the piece.
Uh oh. I’m getting out my popcorn.
When, where and who?
Nick, I'd love to hear some background on that piece.
That piece is not mine, but is being sold by Steve in VA. His eBay store: http://stores.ebay.com/21graph?_trksid=p2047675.l2563
I mentioned this site and the SW Facebook group to him where you guys called out his signature. He already responded on FB and I believe he was waiting to get in here.
The Ford was signed within the last few months and the Lucas was a few years ago both in the Greater Washington, DC area.
If Steve applied for membership here, he’s been approved. I get to them as quickly as I can. In minutes to hours depending on the time of day and my schedule.
The George Lucas autograph appears to be more typical. It is difficult to see the top loop of the “L” in the image. When and where was the photo signed? Also, did PSA offer an opinion on the autographs, or do you prefer JSA?
Opinions please experts.
I am not an expert, but it appears to be atypical to me.
Hi. Sorry for the slow reply but I wasn't added until today. That Ford / Lucas piece is mine and it is 100% legit. Ford was signed in DC in September. Lucas was signed in November of 2014 when he was in town for the Concert for Valor. Nick Sosnowski (who is one of the top IP guys in the world) witnessed both. I've attached a pic of my haul from the 3 days Ford was here.... And pics of Ford w/me and my daughter from that trip... And Lucas from 2014.
