Hi everyone, I was hoping to get some opinions on this Harry Houdini signature. It is signed on a book page....sorry for the pic quality. I didn't see any red flags but I am certainly no expert.…Continue

Hi everyone, I was hoping to get some opinions on this autographed Joe DiMaggio Baseball before I send it to PSA/DNA for a coworker. He obtained it in the early 1990's at a baseball card shop in…Continue

"Houdini apparently had a huge library containing thousands of books....definitely an odd subject though."

"Hi Darryl, thanks for closing the loop on this one. I thought it looked real but I only have an example that Houdini signed in block capitals in 1900 so I didn't feel qualified to offer an opinion. I wonder why Houdini would have signed or even…"

"Hi again, I just waned to give an update on this Houdini signature. PSA/DNA did pass it, so I am very happy with that. To my surprise though, they failed a Dolores O'Riordan signed Cranberries CD Cover that I purchased from Newbury Comics. Go…"

"I tried a PSA Quick Opinion but they would not render an opinion. They said that I would need to send it in which I will probably do. It will cost me around $150 total but if it fails I will be able to get a refund through paypal."

"There's only 1 year apart on the 1908-1909 signatures. Anything is possible? I based my Opinion on the signatures above and the 1908 date on the signature in question...It will be increasingly difficult, trying to match this signature to many…"

Darryl Gundersen replied to Darryl Gundersen's discussion Opinions on Harry Houdini Signed Book
"One thing that I have realized while doing research on Houdini's signature is that they seem to vary quite a bit. Even the two pics posted from 1909 and 1911 vary quite a bit, and they are only 2 years apart. I am not even 100% sure that…"

"Tim, Please post the Houdini signature you found from the time period. Darryl's looks very likely genuine to me, so I'd like to see if I'm missing something. Thanks"

"I managed to get my hands on a Harry Houdini signature from 1909 and 1911. Comparing these with the one you listed, I feel pretty safe in saying, this is not an Authentic Signature. Sorry...."

"The ebay listing (dndgalleries, an antique book dealer, is the seller) did have more pictures of the book. I just took a picture of my computer screen with a closeup of the signature and posted it, which is why it isn't the best…"

"Darryl. I'm concerned because the image appears to be out of a catalog, not the actual book. Do you have more photos? Regular PayPal will protect you but it's best to know for sure from the start."

Darryl Gundersen replied to Darryl Gundersen's discussion Opinions on Harry Houdini Signed Book
"Thanks for taking a look, Steve. It was an ebay listing that I recently won. The listing stated that the book actually belonged to Houdini. I am not too concerned about whether or not he owned it, but I definitely want to make sure that the…"

Steve Cyrkin, Community Manager replied to Darryl Gundersen's discussion Opinions on Harry Houdini Signed Book
"It looks like you're posting an image in a printed catalog, is that right? I haven't studied Houdini deeply, but that autograph has strong Houdini characteristics to me, and I compared it to some period exemplars to confirm my opinion. I…"

"Thanks for the reply. Yes, this is dated 1908, so his signature certainly could have varied from the 1880's until then."

Tim G. replied to Darryl Gundersen's discussion Opinions on Harry Houdini Signed Book
"Be patient, as there are a couple on here, who are Good with Houdini. I only have 7 signatures to compare this one to. Mine are from the late 1880's and 1890's, so I really can't say for sure. It does have some characteristics of…"
