Hope I'm asking this in the right section...
I've recently bumped into this person's little collection of MJ sigs...
My concern is that all those sigs look too similar... I'm thinking they're signed by the same person, but I'm stumped as to if they're really Michael.
Thank you for any opinions/help in advance.

I emailed "bluelifesave" why his MJ autographs are so much cheaper than everyone elses. His response:
Good question, and the answer is because people (naive buyers) will spend large chunks of money when they see coa's (99% of the time those coa's are as useless as an empty bottle of vodka to a Russian sailor), and avoid legit and authentic autographs like mine because there are no coa's offered.
So my target is that an educated buyer will know this Jackson items are legit and buy them (hopefully there will be a few buyers fighting to get them and that increases the value).
Now if you are a buyer and a seller then yes you need a coa to raise the profit, COA's ARE SELLING TOOLS, is that simple.
I don't know your level of knowledge with Michael Jackson's autographs, but even an untrained eye is capable of seeing this is the real deal.
And lastly I start my auctions low with the hopes of selling them promptly instead of waiting months and years for a buyer willing to pay the prices you mentioned for a real Michael Jackson's.
You have a great evening.
Thank you for sharing!
I'm surprised he's stuck with the name 'Olga'. Wascher (an admin here who did a lot of work around MJ fake sigs) was having conversations with 'Olga' as she reports in a thread here about fake Beatles sigs. in March 2019. It's an interesting read. Apparently Erick /Olga was approaching buyers whose bids on his ebay items missed out, and selling other similar items to them privately. The same conversation mentions that Erick / Olga claims that his / her wife is a lawyer and will sue complainants. Nice. :) At least his fake MJ efforts seem not to be making much money on ebay, although (as shown below) items offered elsewhere seem to ask astronomical prices. This is the 'Beatles' convo. link (See p2 at this link where wascher mentions that he was using an IP address from Los Angeles public library) : https://live.autographmagazine.com/forum/topics/beware-ebay-seller-...
A big price hike on this item (MJ Instrumental version collection CD) since it was last offered for sale on ebay in March 2022 at $2,999 usd (page 49 in this thread refers). Now with a different seller, offered at $5,343.99 usd.
