Hi Mike.
So I am just getting to terms with being monumentally duped 15 years ago.
2 x LOTR, 1 x Star Wars, 2 x HP, 1 x Spiderman posters from World Class Signings Keith Upchurch & Paul Bowman.

I know eBay frown on forged items with falso claims....but if I am honest and state the autographs cannot be authenticated and list as just a poster will this be acceptable ???

I need to recover something...if I can !

Your views would be apprecoated.
Kind regards.
Karl

And thank you for your observations/comments so far
