Beatles Autograph Expert Frank Caiazzo Joins RR Auction’s Board of Authenticators

If you collect Beatles autographs, you probably know the name Frank Caiazzo. If you don’t, you may want him to take a look at your Fab Four signature collection. Frank is the world’s most trusted authenticator of the autographs of John, Paul, George and Ringo. That’s why RRAuction recently added Frank as a consultant on our Board of Authenticators. Authentic vintage Beatle autographs sell for more and more with each passing year, so RR Auction better get it right. Now with Frank joining our rock authenticator, Roger Epperson, on our team, collectors can have more confidence than ever before.

I know that not everyone in the hobby is committed to the task of ridding the bad stuff from collections. But Frank is. Frank is—rightfully so—a respected figure in the hobby plus a leading authority on Beatles signed and handwritten material. He’s studied their handwriting mannerisms inside out and can accurately approximate the era in which they were signed. How cool is that? More so—how important is that? Our clients love when our Beatle items are sold with his letters of authenticity because they add value and credibility.

I realize that Caiazzo’s frank, honest, and unbiased opinion isn’t always appreciated by everyone in the hobby—especially those who want to pass off non-authentic signatures of the Fab Four to an unsuspecting public. Frank's the man on the front line in the battle against Beatles forgeries, so he has been attacked by the friends of the forgery industry as being unqualified to render an opinion. We don’t believe them. How about you?

No offense to other Beatles authenticators, but I have never - and would never buy anything secondary market that Mr. Caiazzo had not signed off on already. His opinion may seem "expensive" to some, but I guarantee it is much less expensive than a costly mistake one can make by purchasing a bum Beatles or Beatle solo item. I have seen MANY Beatles autographs pass other authenticators - the respected ones (not that "black hat" gang of characters) only to fail Mr. Caiazzo's revered eye! I cannot think of an authenticator with more reverence in our hobby than he. Kudos to R&R for landing the titan of authenticators!

Thanks James and Rik,

Frank is unquestionably an asset to the legitimate autograph industry and RRAuction is lucky to have him as a consultant. As documented in the Abbey Road blog post, there a ton of forgeries on the market and we all need to turn to experts like Frank and Roger so we don't get burned.

Through our friendship and professional association over these many years, I owe the success of my Beatles autograph business to Frank Caiazzo. His passion, integrity, loyalty and fortitude has had a most positive and gratifying influence on me. There is no one better in his field. There is no better friend. Congratulations Frank ... on your new association with R&R Auctions !
