Bad Hendrix

Aside from the Hendrix autograph that I previously posted, there were two other rather dubious signed Hendrix items in the auction.  One was a plain signed cut, and the other a signed…Continue

Beatles Opinion # 3

Started this discussion. Last reply by Steve Cyrkin, Community Manager Nov 12, 2016. 1 Reply

This is a signed Beatles concert program. I am attaching copies of the whole program and each of the signatures. These also seem off to me, particularly George, but I am far from sure. Any comments…Continue

Gratefulphish replied to Cory Clarkson's discussion Does this bug anyone else? Ugh JSA!!
"I would never buy anything with a sticker placed directly on it.  The only thing worse would be initials in ink.  Why would they have a JSA on the card, when it's encapsulated by PSA in the first place?"

Gratefulphish replied to James's discussion Imagine using John Lennon to steal $3000 !!
"Wow, what a bunch of completely fake garbage.  Must be nice to own MULTIPLE fully signed Beatles, Jimi Hendrix Experience, Buddy Holly and so many other guitars, not to mention the album covers.  It's really time for the Feds to crack…"

Gratefulphish replied to James's discussion Imagine using John Lennon to steal $3000 !!
"I love the fact that the second one doesn't even bother to even describe the item that they are "authenticating."  And then someone would conceivably put one of those hologram stickers on the front of an actual signed album?? I…"

Gratefulphish replied to Anna Monte's discussion Smokey and the Bandit Movie Poster Signature
"Very nice with the 455.  I had a '69 Camaro SS. I wish I had it now."
Wednesday
Gratefulphish replied to Michael Kasmar-AutographPros.com's discussion ACOA and Justin Steffman make the news calling out a FAKE Donald Trump Autographed Bible
"Well, he will probably lay low on the bibles, but just wait for one of his other items to show up, or if you have scans of some of his item descriptions, doing a search using a key phrase in title and description will ferret him out."

Gratefulphish replied to a pug called eva's discussion Hendrix - any opinions?
"A'int that always the truth."

Gratefulphish replied to Seamus's discussion Mexico Forgeries - Proxy eBay Accounts
"I am sensing some veiled sarcasm here.  Am I wrong?"
Tuesday
Gratefulphish replied to Seamus's discussion Mexico Forgeries - Proxy eBay Accounts
"Excellent detective work.  But, what, if anything, does ebay do about alleged forgeries?  It seems like all they care about is making a buck, whether it's off of legitimate or illegitimate items."
Tuesday
Gratefulphish replied to a pug called eva's discussion Hendrix - any opinions?
"I appreciate the research. I'll see what else I can add when I get some time.  But, while various contracts may have historical "importance," for the most part they are either pre-printed forms in some cases, or otherwise typed…"
Tuesday
Gratefulphish replied to a pug called eva's discussion Hendrix - any opinions?
"How many contracts of that type have you seen, and what did they sell for? People just associate Woodstock with Jimi, and vice versa.  Yes, if someone had a Jimi signed contract for that performance, it would bring an astronomical amount, but…"

Gratefulphish replied to a pug called eva's discussion Hendrix - any opinions?
"It is Edward "Juma" Sultan, one of the percussionists on stage with Jimi.  In my own maybe myopic view, this is vastly more collectible and desirable than any of the "routine" contracts or settlements that Jimi signed, some…"

Gratefulphish replied to marc e's discussion PLEASE EVERYIONE READ THANK YOU very important
"Marc, You should really start trying to assemble as complete a list as possible of what you think is missing.  The more detail you can recall about guitars, signatures, etc., will make it that much easier for the police or anyone trying to help…"

Gratefulphish replied to a pug called eva's discussion Hendrix - any opinions?
"I have had this for at least 10-15 years now. It was a steal given the current prices for simple Jimi signatures.  Given its historic importance and direct ties to Woodstock, on Jeffrey and Chandler stationary and countersigned by Juma, I…"

Gratefulphish replied to marc e's discussion PLEASE EVERYIONE READ THANK YOU very important
"Wow, truly awful.  They will have a hard time moving this without it being noticed.  No pawnshop is going to give them anything, without them being able to verify the autographs, which they probably are not interested in doing.  …"

Glad to be your friend! I just uploaded a few short videos from the little documentary they're doing on me, and my autograph collect, that you might enjoy.
