I'm compiling a list of good eBay autograph sellers. Ones that try hard to only sell genuine autographs, and it shows. Ones that back it up when they make a mistake.
Please post links to their eBay accounts and their names. Please do not post without links.
We recently became a member of the eBay Partner Network. We may earn a small percentage of eBay's fees on eBay purchases made through links to eBay from our site—and it doesn't cost you or the seller anything extra.
All we have to do is be the last link you visit before you buy. This works whether you're buying autographs, or anything else on eBay.
These are the eBay sellers members have suggested so far to review:
Roland Brödner, german full time dealer
Mark Kirkup, british full time dealer
Randolph Thomassian, french full time dealer
Ron Dabitz, german full time dealer
For signed promos:
Warner Music Ireland (the US store also has some fantastic exclusives on occasion)
Looney Tunes CDs
John Shaw: bgfd287, doppey987, happy-go-lucky-girl

If there's something particular that catches your eye, there is almost certainly a more solid source to get it from. I'm leaning toward "authentic" on his stuff, but I'm with Steve that I just don't know enough about the guy and how he operates.
He's AFTAL and RTS, so maybe I'm way off.
I'm going to say get more opinions. I could be wrong.
I know of the seller "thesignaturearchive" as I have gotten some items from him. He is an legit in-person collector in the UK and I can recommend him.
Thank you, just a little cautious now after Steve mentioned some of them seem to be written by the same hand.
As I'm new to this I'm not really sure how to spot a fake, are you able to look at his stuff and know what your looking at the real deal (unlike myself)
This is very helpful. Thanks for the informative posts. Has anyone had any experiences with Regis Autographs, longtime eBay sellers as spyrograph?
For good priced cards and autographs I always use svcards .https://www.m.ebay.com/sch/i.html?sid=svcards&isRefine=true&...
PADA has a list of Preferred Dealers World Wide that have never sold Fakes and have an Impeccable record, a few are listed here.
To say that a full time dealer who does not get 100% of their inventory themselves has never sold a fake is a ridiculous claim. If they buy their inventory without a doubt they have unknowingly sold a forgery at one time or another. Doesn’t mean they are dishonest but claiming NEVER is a stretch.
Tim, Thank you for your Feedback, I have purchased from some of those Dealers and I will continue to purchase from them. I also have purchased from many major auctions, at times there have been mistakes, and they made good on it. As long the intention is good and Integrity is part of the Transaction, I am happy.
Again, I want to thank you for your Valued Feedback.
They all make mistakes. There is no perfect system. Honest dealers will make it right. Integrity is a big part of it.
Some not so honest ones will make it right with you and appear honest but will take it back and just sell it to someone else.
