Need assistance verifying I have been scammed!

Help!!  I know there have been many posts over the past year with regard to a man named Larry Goldberg, or formally Paul Miller, selling fake autographed guitars through Autograph Source, Inc.  I, unfortunately are one of his victims.  I purchased multiple guitars for my husband in June and have been battling with Mr. Goldberg ever since.  I have been asked by American Express to provide proof from a qualified independent party that the items are not authentic.  I am frustrated to find out this… Continue

Pawn Stars, Drew Max (Forensic Document Examiner), Bram Stoker Signed "Dracula" Book

Corey (the same guy that purchased that ridiculously-funny Lou Gehrig signed jersey) was excited about purchasing the "Dracula" book signed by the author himself, Bram Stoker.

So Corey calls in "his buddy" Drew Max, Forensic Document Examiner, to examine the Bram Stoker signature.  Mr. Max pulls out his Hubble-sized magnifying glass and begins to…

New Member Looking for Advice

Hi Everyone!

While going through stuff to sell for a garage sale, I came across a couple of autographed photos I had forgotten about. Anyone know where I can sell these? I know they are authentic, they are made out to family members. One is a Willie Mosconi made out to my dad & the other is a Billy Martin made out to my cousin. Any ideas would be appreciated.  Thanks!

Original Popeye Artwork - What is it worth?


As a child in Sarasota, Florida, I lived next door to Bud Sagendorf, who drew Popeye for the last 50 years.  In 1994, shortly before his death, he gave an original comic strip drawing used in the Sunday paper to each member of my family.  These drawings are roughly 15" tall by 18" wide and are mounted on heavy white cardboard.   They are the actual art submitted to the newspapers to print.  Here is a copy of the one that I have in my possession. …
