I've been catching up on all your past articles and discussions since joining the site yesterday. There is a ton of useful info on here for the beginning collectors all the way up to the advanced levels. The artices about forgers have been the most interesting as well as informative. I have completely stayed away from Ebay for autographs as even I, (just a collector, not a dealer) can easily spot fakes on that website. Almost all of the examples on Ebay are horrible. The printed COA's are worse! Keep up the good work.
For those considering whether or not to advertise on this site ~ The simple answer is do it ROI and exposure is 2nd to none. Steve Cyrkin, without a doubt, has been a beacon of light when it comes to many collectors and dealers above reproach that visit this place.

Steve- I am most interested in the examination of signatures for the purposes of authentication. My experiences go back to 1988, and have handled a variety of cases, writing letters of opinion (I do not know if that is worth while here or not), those cases deal with signatures found from extortion to contracts to anonymous letters. I hope to be an asset to this site.
Sorry Steve, I was a bit impulsive filling out my profile...just wanted to express my interest without being presumptous. I am more interested in autographs as an 'alternative asset class" to other investments than I am as an enthusiast. That being said, I am always interested in keeping an eye on the professionals and the industry as a whole.
My apologies for summarizing my voyeurism as 'watching the drama' - my profle has been revised.
Your efforts and the inherent allure of autographs, in my humble opinion, will continue to contributed to the integrity of a market that has great potential - and I am interested in forums like this that benefit the greater good (investors, authenticators, historians, autioneers, dealers and of course collectors).
Cream always rises to the top...thank you, and keep up the good work.
