Hey guys! I would probabaly like to buy myself for my birthday this Ray Charles autograph..is it genuine in your eyes?Cheers, Christian:)
Because Innuendo on this website said that his Freddie Mercury signature was fake...so I am curious..
Yes I 100% agree, it does just fall on its story as I believe do all the other Ray Charles autographs. I've not seen a single autograph on here for Ray Charles which is not falling back on its story to back it up. I don't expect there is anyone that can authenticate to any degree that would be recognised without a lot of guess work or someone happy to just take the money to say yes. I've heard of RR Auctions via here but don't know much about them. I'm neither an autograph collector or trader except for this one collection which I'm selling with Paul cos he asked me to do it with him as he knows I've got a fair bit of knowledge and an interest in the live music scene through the decades in this city. On this one I don't believe anyone can truly say they are an expert and say yes/no. Paul knows he was there and Paul knows he got this off Ray but I realise to get it recognised by many it needs someone who wasn't there and never met Ray or never saw him sign anything to authenticate which is bizarre.
I can. He NEVER signed ANYTHING.
As i said no real consensus on Ray Charles at all. Putting aside the validity of an individual autograph we've heard all sorts of expert opinions all saying different things. Bob, quick question. I assume you was with Ray on his 1963 UK & European Tours to make such a definite statement. What was your recollections of those tours?
you don't have to be an expert to recognize the difference between a stamp and a live signature.
Yep okay!. What's your credentials I'd love to know. Your on here with a false image and false name.
false image? really? you are really showing your ignorance. Let me ask you, spinner of stories, what makes you think that image is not me? What evidence do you have? Did Paul tell you that is not my image? You are really grasping now, but I guess if I were trying to sell a stamped signature for the price you are asking, I would grasp at anything also. I am done with you, your story, and your stamp. And yes, that is me catching, a sport you are probably not too familiar with.
