A very lost chance to have an autograph from Davy Jones and Maureen McCormick

It might of been the only ever, public autograph chance to get Davy Jones and Maureen McCormick at the same time, in the 40 years since this iconic photo and scene was filmed:

Instead, it was not to be and can never be brought together again. It all was to happen last February 11th and 12th at The Hollywood Show, in Burbank, Ca. Already…

An AUTHENTIC Jimi Hendrix autograph

   While browsing this website today, I noticed the number of Jimi Hendrix forgeries that seem to be floating around out there, and they are horrendous. A number of people were asking others if they could possibly authenticate their autograph, so I hope this may help in some way.

   I received a Jimi Hendrix autograph on June 19, 1969 on a stairwell of Toronto's Old City Hall during a recess in Jimi's trial for heroin possession which I attended that day. Seems he was busted at…

Global Authentics Derek Jeter Autographs.....Why do they look so different....Global Authentics, Steve Sipe

It was over two years ago when I started seeing some very odd-looking Derek Jeter autographs on Ebay.  I had never seen that particular style Derek Jeter autograph before.  At the time, that style of Derek Jeter autograph was only being listed by one Ebay seller, and the common denominator was that all of them were authenticated by Global Authentics (whose lead authenticator is Steve Sipe) and the now defunct GAI. 

My first thought was "Did Derek change his…

I have a really nice autographed 1950 New York Yankees team sheet with 17 New York Yankees signatures and two broadcaster signatures after the Yankees won the 1950 World Series over the Philadelphia Phillies which has been authenticated by PSA.  I am not sure what the value is but would appreciate any assistance.  The signatures include:  Casey Stengel, Yogi Berra, Phil Rizzuto, Allie Reynolds, Joe Page, Billy Martin, Whitey Ford, Joe Dimaggio, Jack Jensen, Johnny Mize, Tommy Heinrich, Bobby…

NHL Hockey mask from AACS are they real?

Dear all

Since I am new here, I would like to know if anyone good on sports can comment on this?

This is posted on AACS autographs and I have understood that there are questions about their music autographs. Before bid on this I would like to know if anyone with NHL knowledge can comment on this one?

The cost of importing stuff to Europe is costly and I don not want to do it if there is any doubt about the autographs.

Many thanks in advance from Sweden

Grandstand Sports Memorabilia Inc. COA ( Any Info? Opinions? )

A seller from Lower Southampton, PA has recently listed 32 signed baseballs for sale on Craigslist Philadelphia. Every picture of every ball is fuzzy and/or poor lighting. The COA's offered are a few from PSA/DNA ( He even makes a point that one is authenticated by the esteemed James Spence, so he knows his COA's ) some from Grandstand Sports Memorabilia Inc. (What I could make out from one of the certs is possibly the name "Harry Schwartz…

Non Autograph Fake Crap on eBay

I know this isn't autograph related so I'll keep it short and hope I don't open a whole can of worms but since it IS on the issue of fake crap being passed off as original I thought it prudent to pass it along. What never ceases to amaze me is that these charlatians passing off this junk never do their homework. Sharp  eyes always catch something askew. Take for instance this " Concentration camp uniform". I've collected militaria since I was a kid and learned from my father who was a major…

Signed Beatles VI Album from Antiquities—Your Advice Needed

I was recently in Las Vegas at Antiquities and being a newby I was excited about seeing all the history in front of me. I purchased a Beatles V1 signed by all four. After getting home, I had buyers remorse. I then began to check on COA,s signed by Chris Morales and found that his authentications have been called into question. I read your article on the Forgers Best Friend. I have since been in contact with the owner of Antiquities, Toby Stoffa by emails. I asked her for a history of this…
