The Beatles and Disney have authentication specialists ..... Star Wars deserves the same.

greatsales1000000 is the same seller as anarchydiscounts - http://www.ebay.com/sch/anarchydiscounts/m.html?item=252570203672&a...

And the same as seller musicmayhem2016 - http://www.ebay.com/sch/musicmayhem2016/m.html?item=322464637797&am...

All in New Jersey. Ripping off hundreds of suckers.

All of your dreams can come true with seller greatsales1000000 on eBay - not. Plenty of bogus Queen w/ Freddie Mercury, Van Halen, AC/DC... At least one negative feedback calls out this putrid seller who has a 3-month-old seller ID that replaced the year-old one it used to use. Lots of unfortunate buyers getting this junk for pennies on the dollar. To quote P.T. Barnum, "There's a sucker born every minute."

Bad George "Superman" Reeves signature on ebay now.


And it has bids. Always do your homework!

 Heads  up fore those seeking a Lugosi signature. After going over his Motion Picture card, photos signed for mutual friends, and other known exemplars as well as his wife's poor attempts I determined this was a forgery, probably a light box from Bakers book.This hand shows up in some very surprising places. The dealer sang the old tune to the buyer "...I'd like to honor my no questions lifetime guarantee, but the person I bought this from is nor around and I can't get my money back..." I found not one but two diagnostics in exemplars the seller provided. Case closed. Autograph destroyed.

Thanks JBS, I Appreciate it , I have gotten a JSA Cert for them in FEb!

Ken - Both the Bonds baseballs you posted are good and will get a COA. Don't listen to the nonsense that James is spitting out. He has been wrong on some of the most common autographs that it blows my mind why he even comments.
