I bought this from a prominent signed baseball card dealer years ago, so I never questioned it, but lately, I'm not so sure. Thanks for any opinions.…Continue

"It is not that watercolors are light sensitive, it is the the pigments which can be unstable, or very permanent. The earth colors are come to mind. The binder in watercolor is a gum - very small quantity unlike oil. "

"I just want to add another suggestion.  I personally wouldn't frame it with two lp's. It is going to overshadow the signatures which will be small in comparison.  Abbey Road is a GREAT album, but if you are going to frame with an…"

"I am with Steve and Will on displaying the original. At the moment I have zero autographs on my walls but that is for marital peace rather than conservational reasons. I used to have most of my better items on the walls, behind UV protection glass…"

"Try to take it there yourself and meet with Rick. You can look at all the options and make the framing uniquely yours. And Rick is a fount of knowledge on archival protection. You’ll learn a lot from him. "

"I’ll leave it as-is, send it to Museum Framing to be framed with two LP covers. One will definitely be Abbey Road. Still deciding which early album to include."

"The problem I see with trimming is that there is no way to avoid showing the fact it was trimmed. You either trim it to show the page crease or you trim it clean and have chopped away some ink. That's why for me, I would NOT trim this piece in…"

"+1. It has Tracks/P.Wayne. I also wanted to mention it shows when something of vintage is recently trimmed and this turns me off totally."

"You'll pay PSA/DNA $300 to authenticate your set of Beatles. That could get you one heck of a nice archival framing job, and probably better UV protection."

"Will, contact Rick Badwey at Museum Framing in Alexandria, VA: http://museumframing.com/ There is no better archival framer, anywhere, in my opinion."
