Michael Jackson Autograph Authentic?

Hi guys, I need your opinion authenticating memorabilia. I recently purchased a signed Michael Jackson, Peter Pan sketch. However, some friends believe it may be fake! The signature comes with Drew Max AAU, GFA, and Toby Stoffa COAs. I’ve recently learned that they have had integrity problems in the past. MJ typically has 4 signature styles. Can you give me your opinion? 



thanks!…

Jimmy Stewart | Not so wonderful fakes

As a long time Jimmy Stewart collector, I have dozens of authentic autographs in my collection. From checks to photos to a baseball, I treasure them all.

Jimmy Stewart was a generous signer and there is a good supply of authentically signed Stewart items readily available. As of now, there are approximately 420 James Stewart signed items on eBay from almost every movie he…

Derek Jeter Autographed Forged 1993 Upper Deck Rookie Card

I've been posting Ebay forgeries for almost two decades now, and I am still shocked when I see garbage like the below forged Derek Jeter baseball card with bids.
