I'm preparing to send a few items to Beckett for authentication. Mostly items that were collected through the mail years ago, that I want to ensure aren't secretarial signatures.But in certain cases,…Continue

hbw60 commented on Mike Shepherd's blog post Short-Sighted Collecting Habits
"It's an interesting topic to contemplate, because the way our minds can change often doesn't make any logical sense. For me, I think time can be a factor when I'm considering purchasing an autograph. Historical relevance over time can…"

"Thank you for confirming that. I felt relatively sure that was the case, but I wasn't positive. Mostly, I just remember the section of Neil's biography where Vivian was hired. When Neil was at NASA, he had teams of assistants and…"

"This is almost certainly a pre-print. I wrote to Biden around the same era (2013), and got one that looks exactly like this. I don't have it any more for comparison, but it was the same photo/inscription."

"That's such a fantastic inscription! Definitely one of the best. A couple of years ago, I got a signed copy of his book through Barnes and Noble. I bought it with the hopes that he'd run again, so it worked out well."

hbw60 replied to ralf müller's discussion Apollo 11 Crew Signed - Real?
"Buzz Aldrin's signature looks really good. The handwriting looks spot-on to me. However, it looks like a somewhat recent signature (from the last 20 years or so). Neil Armstrong stopped signing about 30 years ago. That doesn't mean…"

"For security reasons, I don't think there's anything inherently risky about having your name on the item, since it's something so widely available anyway. However, it can potentially annoy the signer, because they'll know exactly…"

hbw60 replied to Alfredo Tulipan's discussion How is this possible?

Leonard Cohen?

I recently purchased a signed photo of Leonard Cohen, purportedly from his personal collection and given to a former secretary. The seller claimed to be listing the items on behalf of this secretary, who's now 90 years old and trying to downsize. Some of the items in the collection were remarkable and definitely authentic, and sold for thousands of dollars. So everything looked very reputable to me. However, I always like a second opinion, so I wanted to ask here. Does anyone have an opinion of…See More

hbw60 replied to Mike T's discussion Star Wars Autograph Authenticity Opinions
"George Lucas' signature is so hard to authenticate, that I wouldn't really trust any TPA. The only way to be sure would be to get it from a reliable seller. K9 is definitely one of those reliable sellers. So it's very weird that…"
