Autograph or Art? (Part 2)

Last month, I wrote about my autograph collection being recently expanded to include original comic and sports art.  The hobby seems to be growing in popularity.  There is a growing interest in not only commissioning artists to produce original works, but to also have the original works autographed by celebrities and athletes.  I am currently undecided about having original comic and sports art autographed.  I am considering it for a few of my pieces.

I also mentioned that I am very…

Question about "Quick Authentication" services

There are a few reputable authentication services that provide a quick opinion. I used PSA in the past but all I got back from them was a single sentence on an item that said "Likely Not Genuine" with not even a sentence or two of why that opinion was offered... annoying but that is not my main question here.

My main question is (if in fact I have found a genuine item that is being listed at a bargain) and I send a link to that item to someone to "quick authenticate" am I also giving…

These guys just don’t quit on new names for selling fake memorabilia.  I’ve lost track of the amount of names they have had in the past year.  It’s all the same stuff and website with a new name (their name isn’t really clear either).

Is it called Time Atlantic? United artist?  Beware very wary.  I cant be;ie e he still is getting away with it.

Typed Letter Signed (TLS) - Any Collectors?

I've recently become more and more attracted to letters from persons that I have an autographic interest in. I now have an Alfred Hitchcock typed letter from 1940 in which he discusses his budding American film career with an assistant director. It's simply signed "Hitch" in black fountain pen ink. 

Some may not be interested in something like a TLS since there is not much "ink" on the page but I am fascinated by the content. I also have my eye on a TLS from John Ford from the same…
