crazyrabbits23 replied to Etienne's discussion How do you feel about this? To "sticker" or not to "sticker' ... that is the question............
"Ugly as sin -- and for me, personally, on the same level of depravity as taking documents with signatures, cutting them out, plopping them into a card slab and j****** up the price to absurd levels in order to justify the "authentication.""

crazyrabbits23 replied to Steve Zarelli's discussion What's new in your collection?
"No worries -- I've always found Trudeau books (both that of P.E.T. and his family) to be very interesting to collect signatures for. For a time from the 70s and 80s, there was an entire cottage industry based around nothing but Trudeau books,…"

"@Rich: Based on some cursory research, the first "Why So Serious?" poster came out around Dec. 2007, and Ledger died in mid-Jan. 2008. Not completely out of the realm of possibility, but I'd still be skeptical nonetheless. Did the…"

crazyrabbits23 replied to Jason K. Majid's discussion Pierre Trudeau, autopen?
"A similar piece from the early 70s that may also be of help -- though I can't confirm full legitimacy of this piece. I bought it as part of a larger collection owned by an individual who appeared to know the Trudeau family (the same seller I…"

crazyrabbits23 replied to Jason K. Majid's discussion Pierre Trudeau, autopen?
"Autopen IMO. This is one of the standard stock pics he sent out around this time, and while it's not out of the realm of possibility that these are both legit, I've stayed away from similar pics precisely because I can't ascertain…"

crazyrabbits23 commented on Etienne's blog post How do you ultimately decide on authenticity with your collection?
"Indeed -- it's rarely been easier to do your own research. Even with the controversies from some fields over the past couple years (autopenned books, prints and books from celebrities who should know better, and have no excuse), there's a…"

crazyrabbits23 commented on Mike Shepherd's blog post Autograph or Art? (Part 2)
"There was a lithograph I sold for a very pretty penny last year -- the only signed art (video game-related) I owned. I came across this at a Value Village and didn't hesitate to pick it up because I was a fan of the franchise it came from…"

crazyrabbits23 replied to DannyGraceland's discussion Saxophonist (and former President) Bill Clinton Signed Bookplate
"Ah, I don't know about that. Up here in T.O., the organizers behind both the Hillary/Bill 2017(?) speakers' event and the one Bill did for "President is Missing" both struggled to fill seats. The former resulted in blocks of…"

crazyrabbits23 commented on Etienne's blog post How do you ultimately decide on authenticity with your collection?
"I'd say a good 70-80% of my collection has no supporting documentation (being signed books I've picked up secondhand). In those cases, I either trust that the author in question is niche enough that there's no market for someone…"

crazyrabbits23 replied to Steve Zarelli's discussion What's new in your collection?
"Forgot to post about this when I received it last year, but like many others in the forum, I finally found my "white whale". I'm a huge Pierre Trudeau collector -- always had an affinity for the man, have had an opportunity to meet…"

crazyrabbits23 commented on Mike Shepherd's blog post Inscriptions or Less?
"Depends on who's doing the inscriptions. I've specifically sought out inscribed books by certain Canadian authors because it's different from their usual norm (the standard "best wishes" or "for..."), even if it…"

crazyrabbits23 replied to Steve Zarelli's discussion What's new in your collection?
"Been picking up a few Margaret Atwood pieces as of late, and was able to get one of 25 signed/personalized prints she did for a local Greenbelt conservancy up here in Canada. It's a gorgeous piece (quote is taken from "The Handmaid's…"

crazyrabbits23 replied to DannyGraceland's discussion Saxophonist (and former President) Bill Clinton Signed Bookplate
"What a comedown -- I attended the Toronto event with Clinton for "President is Missing" three years or so back, and I remember the signed books were tied up behind the Gold-level tickets and higher. $37.50 for a bookplate (even if…"
