Has anyone ever heard of Team Derek? Supposedly he was an associate of Mead Chasky, and I know Chasky's sports stuff is solid, but I have never heard of Derek. Anyone have opinions on Chasky's entertainment items?
Here are a bunch of items with Team Derek/Chasky holograms on eBay:
Some look good to me, others I am not familiar with. Thanks!
I looked at several items, including the GNR item, and i personally would avoid this seller. The steve perry baseball at the beginning also looked horrible, but that could be due to circumstance. But i wouldnt feel comfortable buying from this seller. Their might be some good items sprinkled in though in my opinion.
Here is the Steve Perry Baseball:
Here is the GNR drum head. I have to admit that if this is a fake, its a good one. But their is something about the formation of Slash and Axl that worries me. But if they are bad, they are close.
Here is a Buddy Guy drumhead:
Here is a Peter Criss:
And here is a Roger Waters
I checked out the auctions and there was actually an item I was interested in: http://www.ebay.com/itm/UK-Autographed-Record-Album-4-Signatures-Ho...
But I don't have any familiarity with these signatures at all. And it's not cheap enough to roll the dice! LOL
I am familiar with Holdsworth's signature, and i am confident that this is not his real signature.
Sorry I missed your comment earlier - what is your opinion on the Chasky items I pulled out below?
I just looked at some of his new items, and every item I looked at that i was familiar with was a forgery. Here are just a few.
First is a poor quality Slash in my opinion.
Here is a Pete Townshend that doesnt look right to me. Townshend is a very good TTM signer, so why fake it?
Here is a Uli Jon Roth that looks way off
And here is a Bon Jovi. Now i only have one Bon Jovi that came from his website, and i know his sig has changed through the years, so i dont know for sure on this one. But noting his other items, id say this one is suspect too. But their are many other items on his ebay seller account. I just picked a few i was familiar with. I think they are all likely bad.
And all these items are starting at like 10 dollars. And before the last batch ended a few hours ago, i noticed that they all had bids on them. Its sad that a great number of people out their bought these.
I also noted this Nils Lofgren in his inventory:
Is this Nils's 2012 signature style? I got him in 2010-2011 and his signature wasnt this style. Looking around online i found some 2012 examples on ebay that seemed similar, but not quite the same, save one:
To me this item looks very similar to the Nils above, but it also looks extremely shaky. When you zoom in on the L in Lofgren (looks similar to a P), that loop looks extremely shaky going all the way down into the formation of the next letter. (at least i think that is the formation of the L in Lofgren) That could be just me though. I am a huge advocate of PSA and JSA, and if Roger looked at this and gave it the thumbs up then im sure its real. I just havent seen that much of this style of Lofgren before and it appears strange to me. Any opinions?
The Nils is the only one you picked out with a Chasky hologram, as you stated, it would be nice to see what Roger says about those Team Derek pieces. However, here are a few Chasky pieces he is selling:
Like Zipper mentioned, I only know Chasky as he is associated with sports. It would be nice to hear some opinions on his entertainment items.
