No, born in Ireland. I've been in SoCal off & on for the last 20 years. Was in Silverlake for a long time, now outside of Grand Terrace. Possibility of work moving me again to Minneapolis of all places...don't know if I can take it. Spoiled too long by this weather.
Hello, Steve can you help me to identify a declaration of independence that I just found in a flea market the size is 15 1/2 inches by 17 1/2 inches the color of the paper is between white and beige not yellow firstname.lastname@example.org thank you
Unfortunately when I stated collecting over 20 years ago I was not as knowledgeable as I am now and I have over 10 Beatles Albums signed supposedly by all four including a promo photo, and a Snare Drum signed by Ringo Starr, and a Guitar signed by Paul and Ringo. But knowing what I know now I fear that they may all be fakes. I hope for my sake that at least maybe 1 of the things I have could be real. Unfortunately i recently lost my job and due to health I am unable to go back to work. So I really need to sell some of my longtime treasured collectibles. if I take the time to send the pics to verify their Authenticity will i get an honest opinion as to their wether they are fake or not . If the answer is yes will you respond directly to me or will I have to wait for the end of the consensus to know wether my items are considered fakes? Thank you for your time and adding me as a friend I really appreciated the article on the beatles Albums but it does make me fear that all the items I have may be fakes!!!! Which would really suck This site is amazing by the way
Yes !!!!! Where did you guys get the photo from?? I can assure you it is 100% genuine. It has complete providence, certified handwriting, and evidence of past ownership. It is understandable why it's questioned, but so matters are put straight it is a true piece of rock memorabilia, and one I am proud to own!!!
I will do that. I need to get some more pictures. It's tricky because these collectibles were my fathers and since he worked in promotions he was able to get alot of celebrity signatures that he did not buy but was physically present for. Thank you for your advice, my goal is to liquidate as
Much of this as possible since the lease on the air-conditioned storage unit is almost up

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.
