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.
I bought the original prints from the guy with the negative (he claimed he had the rights.) I then supplied the guy doing the signing with a print for me and a print for him, as long as he got mine signed.
I can fully understand a celeb who gives scribbled and ugly graphs in the streets when that same celeb charges for his graph at a show. But when that celeb starts charging 3x's the price at a show, you would hope that he lays out a nice autograph and takes his time when he is getting paid.
We have certainly seen elderly signers lose some of the control in their hands (a bit) as different conditions start to cause problems within their bodies, but I am unaware of any such condition in Hamill's case. He chooses to rush thru longer lines of people and chooses to charge as much as he can, that's his call, I just won't be in those lines.
The size certainly explains the wobble in the long lines and the smudge. Lefties signing with paintpens do tend to drag their hand thru the paint.
Your comments about Mayhew and others are very on point. Just to clarify my statements, I wouldn't be in their lines either.
Says professionals who know fords autographs unlike you. Lol
Better than average forgery.
