"Ah, thank you!  By the way, the website offering this is Regis Autographs. I’d been curious for awhile now about getting a second opinion on some of their items."

"Innuendo, could you please give your opinion on this piece? Before you look at it though, I must say that I noticed it’s being offered by the same seller that’s selling that signed notecard in the original post, which you said was fake.…"

Collector
What brings you to Autograph Live?
I used to live in New York and collect in person, but recently moved to Portland and have started collecting vintage classic Hollywood items. I’ve found that when researching authenticity before purchasing an item, the Autograph magazine website has been a very good source for opinions of other collectors.
Who can we thank for telling you about Autograph Live?
Google
What do you collect, or want to collect?
Classic Hollywood and Stage
Tell us more about your collection, specific areas of interest, etc.:
Classic Hollywood, classic rock, other notables from 1900s-1950.
What is your level of expertise?
Advanced Collector
What is your favorite autograph in your collection?
Very tough call, I have several Madonna graphs I obtained when her former assistant’s storage locker went up for auction. My favorite in person graph is my Robert De Niro inscribed and personalized Taxi Driver original photo. I also love my vintage original Ingrid Bergman glamour shot.
Why do you collect?
I started when I spotted Ellen Degeneres walking into a restaurant once and I’ve been hooked.
You can ask anyone living or dead for their autograph. Who would it be?
Fatty Arbuckle
