Hi Steve, so glad I found this website !!!! This article on Autograph Central blows me away!!
How can these fakes keep being sold ????????
I have been too trusting of people but that has changed. It's a sad comment on a great hobby.

I'll have to see if there's a way to scan it so I can post a pic on here. Thanks, Steve. :-)

Hey Steve,

Thanks! I figured I'd update it ... the other one was 2 or 3 years old.

Best,
Tricia

Thanks Steve,

I'll give it a try for awhile and see if it keeps my interest. Just an FYI to all concerned. I have used the Harvey Meiselman sports lists for the past 2 years and they are the greatest. Anyone else have good results with his lists?

Certainly would make sense based on his blindness age and the academic challenges he faced.

In an interview some time before Mr. Charles' death, he was purported to have stated that "I'll never sign anything I can't see". I have a signed photo of Ray and have often questioned it's authenticity. It looks secretarial with VERY neat handwriting...DT

Hi Randy,
All his signatures are questioned, because he signed so little--some say no at all, but I don't believe that. What you probably have is a secretarial by Vernon Troope, his valet and constant companion. I don't have one handy, but it's fairly big and flowing and easy to read. Ray went blind when he was little so his signature wouldn't likely have the polish of an adult's--and none that I've seen and felt could be real did.

I have some brail Playboys Vernon signed. We got together for lunch a number of years ago and he told me the story: Ray Charles was a voracious reader and left brail magazines in every hotel he stayed in. The housekeeping staff would always send them to his next stop, thinking he forgot them. The next hotel would take them up to his room...and on and on. Well they were getting sick of this, so Vernon had the brilliant idea of signing each magazine Ray Charles. Sure enough...no magazine was ever forwarded again.

Upload the signatures and I'll let you know.

Hello Steve,
Mine are signed in BEST WISHES Ray Charles. They were sent to his former managers office in the late 1990's. Did Ray Charles know how to sign his own name? Do you have any examples of his actual signature? Thanks Steve.
Randy

Hi Steve - Great 20/20 spot - You looked great and I am sure that the coverage will have some positive impact. After I saw the show and the talents of a good PhotoShop artist, I became a little concerned on a signed pic that I have. It's a 8/10 color photo of the Mona Lisa being signed by Michelangelo, plus, the dealer sent along a stone tablet carving of Mike signing the photo as evidence (real Flintstone quality) - I really thought it was real, because he was signing with one hand and eating penne pasta with meat sauce with the other hand - and only real history buffs know that he likes the meat sauce, not the plain one. Hee Hee :-), Let's connect soon Tom

Mr. Cyrkin, I am not sure why you seem to think I sell bad autographs. I have never knowingly sold a bad autograph. My main business is Hollywood and Rock & Roll and has been for 40 years. I stand behind my sales and do the best I can. I am NOT an authenticator but I have a large file of exemplars and check everything I buy. Yes, I do sometimes get a bad one and if I cannot get my money back,. I destroy it. Also I make a habit of having things certified by a forensic authenticator to insure that my items are good. What more can a dealer do? I buy from celebrities by making deals with them for autographs in quantities and also buy from the generasl public.
