Hi John. Welcome to Autograph Magazine Live. Let me start by saying that complete Pink Floyd items are not something you should get into buying unless you are very well versed in their autographs or get one from the most trusted of sources. Gilmour is next to impossible to get to sign and complete items are just tough to find. If you are going to pursue these types of items I'd really stick to hoping one turns up at one of the top major auction houses but you'll be paying an arm and a leg for sure. Solo Gilmour signed items can get into the $1000s. In regards to the one you posted I'm not a pro at vintage versions of the band's autographs but I can tell you that their modern autographs look nothing like that. If you are a true Pink Floyd fan or collector of rock autographs I'd suggest going after Roger Waters autographs, preferably PSA authenticated ones. Right now the market is pretty saturated with them but he's recently claimed he's stopped signing for the pros so the market is going to swallow up all the excess that's out there and the prices are going to steadily rise. You can find photos, bass guitars, regular guitars, and albums pretty cheap right now (considering how legendary the band is) because he was super generous the past few years but again, that ship may have sailed and his signing days may just be done. Best of luck in your collecting.

Thanks for the advise. I agree that they don't look right, and will pass on the item. Is there a list of sites where examples of authenticate autographs can be found, this would be most useful.
I agree! Thanks for the input!
Hi all, just joined to make comment, I am a massive Floyd fan and those autographs definitely look fake to me.
I have this poster signed from The Wall movie, but when I sought a quick opinion from PSA/DNA, they sent me back a "unlikely to be genuine" verdict, that absolutely gutted me, but I have not given up hope and would like to see if anyone can explain to me why it got that verdict?
there are 8 autographs (all four floyd.. Bob Geldof, Bob Hoskins, Alan Parker and Nell Campbell) and they all look the real deal to me, when compared to genuine ones - but I am a novice in autographs, but I do know Pink Floyd very well and have a couple of personally signed items from Roger Waters... that seem to match this one very closely. Any help would be appreciated
Those are all fakes--sorry mate. If you have never gotten any members of Pink Floyd in person--then you would not know. it is by simple long term in person experience--seeing something signed in front of you--ocer 20 years--to see these are bad fakes. I guess you acant get your money back..
Wow--that's a joke..all fake..sorry--I ould testify in court for you.
Very disappointed, but grateful for your advice.
