Hi Steve, thanks for accepting my friend request. When you get a minute could I kindly request a picture of your Elvis if you'd like to share it, and your background story of how you came to have it. Like I told you Elvis and Jimmy Page are on my radar to complete my collection. Thanks Steve, Jimmy

Hello Steve, how are you? May I ask you to look at my recently purchased Brian Wilson signed book wouldn't it be nice with a beckett COA. I think the signature is a little bit odd. Maybe the coa card and sticker are fake. I have posted it on my discussion. Thanks!

hi Steve...do you know anything about a NJ long time promoter named Fred Davies...he has a trove of MANTLE and Dimaggio items...he claims he was their promoter for years,,,I looked around his office and he does have quite a few pics with them going back decades,,,problem is much of the stuff he is looking to unload (he is now 83 years old) seems like it is brand new condition..just wondering if you knew anything bout his reputation

Yeah. I wrote a monthly column for the print version when Ev was around. It was called Off the Wall. Also wrote 2-3 features a year. 

Hope you’re doing well.

Hi Steve.

This is the second email like this I have received.

Looks very dodgy to me.

Obviously I didn't reply.

Have you seen these from any other members

Thanks

Hi Steve. I was scammed by Brian Burkell who now goes by Ken Burns. My credit card company is investigating the fraud claim I instituted against him and his bogus guitar he said was a signed Washburn by Chicago. Not a Washburn and fake signatures! Terry Kath has been dead since 1978! I feel so stupid because I usually get everything I buy on the Internet but I didn't with him. I think he should be prosecuted for mail fraud but I don't want to sue him if he has no assets. So bummed about this. Thx.

Posted on March 22, 2017 at 10:00am 1 Comment

No autograph is more popular than Mickey Mantle's. And no autograph is forged more.



Many Mantle forgeries are easy to identify, once you know what to look for. Telling a skilled forgery from a genuine Mantle takes a lot…

Guitar Signed by The Beatles, Rolling Stones and Other Artists in the TCM-Bonhams March 27 Auction

Posted on March 8, 2017 at 8:00am 24 Comments

Last I heard, there were no genuine, intact Beatles-signed guitars known. The only one was reportedly destroyed in a Malibu, Calif. landslide about 15 years ago.



RR Auction sold one a Beatles signed guitar around 2010, but the owner had tapped the autographs down with an awl to, um, "preserve them."…

RR Auction Lawsuit: No Evidence of Shill Bidding

Posted on September 6, 2016 at 11:30am 11 Comments

The judge rejected Michael Johnson's fourth attempt to add shill bidding allegations to his RR Auction lawsuit a few weeks ago. With his attempt to make it a class action lawsuit failing in March 2015 and his attempt to add shill bidding and another claim failing on August 12, Johnson's case heads to trial in January, apparently on his original claims only.…
