"Hi, thank you! Yes, my thinking is the same as yours - it looks different but has some good traits in comparison to his vintage autograph. Still hoping to get something more definitive in regards to a comparable haha. Thank you!"

Charley replied to Mike Shepherd's discussion Star Wars Collectors Unite!
"Hmmm...first impulse was no, but I think it might be good.  Definitely not a recent sig, but perhaps from a transitional stage between his vintage (80s) sig and what we commonly see today.  Certainly some traits there that I like. …"

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
