Steve asked me to start a new thread since some were having a lot of issues with regards to whether or not the through the mail autographs of Jerry Lee Lewis are real or not. I will post some examples of what we have been getting recently and some know in person examples. These TTM signatures are not cheap. You have to pay $50 for them to his box office box. The question is are they real or not. Roger has said that he has never seen Mr. Lewis sign this way and it looks to perfect - like a woman's signature.
Please post your thoughts here and examples.
Since this seems to have become a perpetual discussion, allow me to again point out a significant issue that is being overlooked.
Posters here are autograph people. So it's natural to look at just the signed document for "proof" of an item's authenticity.
However, for me, there is something much more telling than signature comparisons or even PSA/DNA's "authentication." That is, when WPIX-TV in New York tried to authenticate the book signatures by tracing their origin, not a single person or company in the autograph chain acted in a manner consistent with the signatures being authentic. Not one.
That speaks loudly.
Very good point - Sidney.
I did ask JW about it and he said he doesn't sign autographs for JLL. JLL told the Memphis Business Journal that his hand was getting tired from signing the books. This was prior to any accusations that someone else signed them. Judith also stated that JLL signed the books.
so you really believe that they would come clean after deceiving their fans TTM and now the books? Come on........
As far as I'm concerned, the signatures back up the statements. All of this time and the book signature and TTM claims amount to absolutely nothing. Zero. Five signatures were presented as examples of TTM secretarials, all of which were said to be consistent with each other. A while later, another signature that is obviously consistent with one of those five was offered for sale by the same person. If that doesn't tell you that there's a problem, nothing will. Now we have a signature that was pre-certed by that same person, and the owner of this site is saying that it's "without a doubt" consistent with the book signatures(!).
and it all comes down to JW again. Anything associated with him bringing items to JLL to be signed come back looking like, well, like JW signed them, not JLL. If JLL's hand was so tired from signing all the books, why do all the signatures look the same?
They don't all look the same. You just haven't put in the effort to see that.
These both look to be signed by the same person to me, Ballroom. Without a doubt in my opinion. But I don't believe it was JLL.
I'm referring to the comparison you posted of the RR one and the signed book.
