Hello, I could use the kind help and knowledge of a Clash 'expert' or three to help me determine if this is real or not. I have not yet purchased it and it's not on Ebay. I did  web research and the Clash signatures are not-consistent which is why I'm here asking and looking for your help.Thanks.clash_london_calling_.jpg

Yet another bad George Reeves Superman forgery appearing on ebay now. I don't know these sellers but they are either ignorant, just don't care, or are a party to the manufacture. They have been on ebay quite a while too, so no excuse for ignorance. Maybe they are legit, but they are making a big mistake with this one. You can see it here:

The Reeves is awful as is the Landon this person is selling

Yet another bad George (Superman) Reeves autograph on ebay now, complete with a worthless certificate. And it has several bids. Even a casual observer can see there are so many things wrong with it, but apparently these bidders are just not looking or are shills. You can see it for yourself: item # 161282784546

Guadalupe, that's what I have noted, too, about authentic Aeneas Williams autographs. Also, the Aeneas is signed in a lower case A, not capitalized like the card that was returned to me.

Thanks, Rick. I think so, too. I'll try again in a couple of years after all the HOF hype dwindles down.

Jeff, I collect Cardinal sigs to. I have numerous Williams sigs and none look like this. I think somebody signed it for him.

Comment by Guadalupe Chavez on March 11, 2014 at 1:58pm
I collect Az Cardinal autographs and I have Aeneas Williams and he signed his name Aeneas with a watermelon circle around the number #35 and then the Romans 10:9. Of his autographs I've seen ,he always signs his first name and never a W and always a bible verse. If you ask him for his name only he will do that but usually always adds a verse like Kurt Werner does.

Got this in the mail last week. I am not sure if this is real. What do you all think? I have not seen any authentic Aeneas Williams autographs that have a captial A in them. Think maybe this is a new autograph style? You all be the judge.
