What exactly is this eBay seller doing? Is this considered counterfeiting?

Posted on September 15, 2012 at 1:00pm 79 Comments

I suggest you review the items for sale by an eBay seller named: presidentialcollectibles

 It appears that this seller is using a new 2012 autopen machine and is counterfeiting, ( if that is the correct term?), celebrity autographs.  The seller's description states that, "These signatures cannot be found anywhere else", so it is unclear if anyone else is also currently using this autopen device. Thus far, one can purchase a Neil Armstrong, John Lennon, Marilyn Monroe, Bruce Lee, Babe…

I am suggesting that for those of us who wish to participate, that we post some of the most ridiculous, silly, absurd autographs that we find on eBay. For legal reasons, I am NOT saying that these items mentioned are non-authentic, just totally preposterous. Each of us can draw our own conclusion.

My contribution is not only hilarious, but it also backed by a forensic handwriting examiner, who graded it a '10'. Let me begin the hit parade:…


Autograph Price Trends June 2010

The autograph market is in many ways, reflective of the stock market. When the stock market dips lower, it is the time to purchase stocks. Unfortunately, most of us buy stocks when the market rises and sell when the market drops. This is also true of autographs. That being said, if you can think counter-intuitively, now is a good time to buy autographs. The autograph prices, from many of the autograph auction houses, are quite attractive and clearly more affordable than a few… Continue

Hi Dr. Saffro. I happened to notice in the Sander's Autograph Guide 7th Edition that you have incorrect dates on Dan Haggerty (Grizzly Adams). He's listed as 1914-1988. As of 2010, he's very much alive. Come to think of it...there's no way he could be in his late 90s. I could understand a typo 1914 as opposed to 1941. I did a Google search and find there was a Don (Donald) Haggerty who was born in 1914 and died in 1988. I also find that Dan (Daniel) Haggerty was born in 1941.

Richard, I have never seen one after Lincoln. I think the most common scalloped top (Mediterranean) ships are from the Jefferson and Madison admisitration.s
