First let me say , I have always been a proponent of 3rd party independent authentication, because I believe it curtails the forgery industry.  And I still believe that.However I have always had…Continue

"  Its been years since eBay removed a sellers forgeries  For a period of time about 8-10 years ago they were cracking down.   They dont remove anymore. "

"That might have a negative effect. If you point out the flaws to a forger they will become better at forging. The best thing to do is to report these items to eBay and have them remove the listing and ban the user. "

"That explains  a lot .  There is one ebay seller that has multiple PSA Encapsulated autographs that may have suspicious encapsulations , although I havent yet heard PSA confirm any of this. "

James replied to kevin conway's discussion Another Michael Jackson PSA ??
"Doing so seems kind of clever by the forger, but if the database says album, it’s probably a good idea to use an album and not a CD!  Lol."

Big Saturn Comics replied to kevin conway's discussion Another Michael Jackson PSA ??
"Same seller as the one I previously posted. I found out that this is actually common practice among forgers to go through PSA/DNA’s database and find listings that lack photographs and use the COA number for their item. "
Dec 22, 2019
James replied to kevin conway's discussion Another Michael Jackson PSA ??
"I checked the PSA database.  There is no picture, but this comes up as an authentic Michael Jackson signed LP album...not a CD.  So this is just a fake PSA sticker on a fake MJ signed CD."

Warning Signs an Autograph Dealer May Be Selling Forgeries

Posted on March 8, 2016 at 7:00pm 38 Comments

There have been countless write-ups and articles about what to look for when it comes to buying autographs. Most have the same information such as "if it's too good to be true it probably is," and recommend comparing the autograph to known exemplars, secretarials, autopens and other references.

Instead of discussing the technical aspects of…

Calling all John F Kennedy Experts - what do you think of this?

Posted on January 9, 2011 at 4:30pm 32 Comments

 

OK, I can’t believe I am already doing this all over again, but now instead of John Wayne it is John Kennedy. 

I am hoping for some of the great objective expertise from the John Wayne study I posted a couple weeks ago.  Anyway, here is the JFK case study.…

Thanks!

I was wondering why you said that JSA satisfies the UACC authenticator requirements, but PSA doesn't. If I'm reading the authentication requirements correctly, the only thing that doesn't count is the PSA Quick Opinion service. Given that PSA uses their DNA sequenced daub on authenticated items, I would assume that counts for the custody requirements established by US courts.
