"The autograph style and writing  are authentic  but I believe it could be a pre-printed signature. Kate's autographs are quite large and unless this is a poster it appears to be uncharacteristically small."

If i'm lucky enough in the future to be able to obtain a Bowie, Stones, Who or Floyd signed piece, you shall certainly be my first port of call.

Thanks again!

Thanks again Mark - I already added those 1987 exemplars to my file. I also just left some comments re that little "'87" scrap. We are of the same mind and saw the same things.

Hi Mark,

Thanks! I was wondering who that Bowie photographer was - Gorman. Great! Much appreciated and glad you like my example.

Hi Mark,

Thanks for those exemplars. I just sent a friend request as well. Do you know who took this photograph? Duffy or Weber or? I can not find this information anywhere. Thanks!
