I see this site brought up a lot on this site for autograph references.
problem is, who ever this Stephan is he has a load of forgeries up here too. I get messages from people from time to time saying he has offered to sell a member here an item or two and it is never the real stuff imo, it is usually the fake stuff. Greed. He wants money but doesn't want to part with the good stuff.
Eagles are his most famous work. Attached is a screen shot of his fake work (not limited too). Notice how they are the same..... duh. If you look through his stuff he has loads of fake Zeppelin, Beatles, Springsteen, Stones, Floyd and more. Even the so called authentic Traveling Wilbury's is not real. Maybe the George and Petty are ok but 100% not the Lynne and I'm pretty sure the Dylan is bogus also. Anyway, I don't wish to debat about this guy and his ethics but if you are using him a reference be careful and I wouldn't buy anything from the guy either.
I would be interested in seeing any of the certs PSA issued saying which items have failed. (They do issue certs with pictures of the items stating the reasons why the items have failed). Does anyone have these to put up on this site?
That's not always true Bjarte as I sent PSA a non-rushed Springsteen for a quick opinion that failed. A few weeks later, I sent them the money for the full certificate and it passed right away.
Latest news on this is that I had Roger Epperson to look at it...: "Without question authentic"! I respect Rogers opinion on The Eagles higher than anybody elses opinion, so thats good enough for me...
what is the novel "forgery" Mr. Duncan is writing?
I had considered asking that same question, but Mr. Duncan doesn't answer questions.
He owes us nothing.
Maybe it is a rollicking adventure about a once well respected grapher that hoards all his real autographs but forges mountains of stuff to pass on to trusting collectors.
Unfortunately without Mr Duncan actually here responding to questions on where he obtained all of these Eagles signatures. And no Im not asking for dates and times. The question was "Did you get them All in person'? Sadly I have my doubts also and feel stupid myself for trusting blindly. Oh well.
We've had talented collectors give opinions, but experts on the music haven't contributed to the discussion yet. If you own some of the autographs being discussed, talk with them and ask them to read the discussion and then tell what they think. That will help you make the right decisions.
Hi Chris, the reason I put "blindly" trusted was because I just assumed the signatures were good and never looked too hard at them. Nobodys fault but mine (Zep). I don't think Mr. Duncan is a forger but I don't think he witnessed all those autos being signed. I believe if he had just said so,people would have understood. By leaving he has just left everything up for speculation which doesn't look good. Shame, I always considered the collection solid. I could kick myself because Im no kid and am not usually naïve. like others have said the signatures must speak for themselves.
