Well you blew us away. If I only knew you were in San Diego this weekend! We could have had lunch or drinks--I'm only an hour away.
Good gracious. You must be loaded. Thats gotta be in the tens of thousands of dollars worth of stuff if not more. I wish i had that bank account. Awesome stuff. Congrats!
Thanks Chris. I bought some with cash and traded for the others.
YEAH TED YOU COVERED ALL BASES IN EVERY AUTOGRAPH REALM....SO SWEET
I started just collecting sports autographs for the first two years but soon found it difficult to just stick to sports autographs.
Would you please send me a big, crisp close-up of the Muhammad Ali autograph on your poster? The most common Ali forgeries these days are modeled after mid-80s to mid-90s signatures like yours, so I want to start a discussion to help folks identify them.
If you can help, I'd really appreciate it! Thanks.
Thanks...great piece. I checked it against www.joeheavyweight.com and '67-'68 is in line with their exemplars.
The Ali discussion I want to start will focus on about '85-'95, since they're producing forgeries by the thousands resembling that period like this one:
When I say "resembling" I'm being generous.
yeah, those are all over the place. but easy to spot.....
I always wished he dated my autograph, because he signed "world boxing champ" while he was in exile. I always thought that was cool.
I will upload a close-up of the signature when I get home on Wednesday night. I am stuck in San Diego for work right now.
