I am suggesting that for those of us who wish to participate, that we post some of the most ridiculous, silly, absurd autographs that we find on eBay. For legal reasons, I am NOT saying that these items mentioned are non-authentic, just totally preposterous. Each of us can draw our own conclusion.
My contribution is not only hilarious, but it also backed by a forensic handwriting examiner, who graded it a '10'. Let me begin the hit parade:

That Lincoln could have been signed by another Abe Lincoln who mistakenly dated it 1860, when he meant July 10, 2010 hahahahahahaha

Doc, I rarely comment on material offered by others, but those two items are the worst pieces of sh_t I've seen in a long time.

Bill is awesome. Your comments make me laugh. I hope the autographs that I purchased make you laugh.

You learn more from screwing up than doing things right. I am learning a lot from my mistakes.

I know who Travis is referring to. He is in CA (careful about mentioning names). I have purchased and sold things with him and always been happy. The dealer may allow him to post their items on his site. What does either party have to lose? As long as the item is represented accurately and is authentic, that is fine. He does not state the item is his, so there is no misrepresentation. I actually purchased one of my favorite pieces from him at a super price and was offered double. It is in my collection. Auction houses also use reserves, which people complain about. But, if those people put their own stuff for sale, they would want their stuff protected. No different

Ironically, I framed a similar autograph (but real) and dated May 30, 1860. Apparently, this guy copied it from another item, but very poorly!
