"I think Michaels did a pretty good job with it but I probably would have liked the check matted and not floating but I was talked out of it by the framer. Also, the check obviously has a cancellation stamp on the signature but for the price I got…"
"Yes, for sure. I always take pics or keep the nicer scans of things I win in my auctions. It's also very cool that both autographs grade about a 10/10, very bold with what she wrote it out and signed it with. Funny, I also…"
"At least you have a photo of the endorsement. I’ve researched Garbo extensively and have never seen any piece twice signed by her, it’s phenomenal! Garbo actually hated writing checks because they never would be cashed and kept for a…"
"I can’t stand those sterile cumbersome PSA holders that checks particularly are encapsulated in. I think you did a very good job on the framing. Are you able to see the Garbo endorsement on the back, however?"
"Great piece! I have my Garbo check (payable to Saks Fifth Avenue) at Michael’s right now being framed. As soon as I get it back next week I will post a photo. I really like the check completely made out in her hand. "
"Big Garbo fan too. Etienne, I was lucky enough to snag this twice signed 'to cash' with my Auction Sniper years ago, back before they all (signed signed) started dropping at near $500 bucks a piece. Love this piece, worked…"

hey just wanted to let you know i wasn’t trying to be a jerk towards you. i appreciate your friend request. i’m glad you got it certed because it’s worth bucks for you. everyone had a difference in opinion which makes it interesting. psa dna made me laugh with the elton that just posted. i know elton because i’ve collected him for a long time and i can’t believe that someone could say that scribble is definitely real. i know his signature better than most people and i would say that’s real or not. you can’t tell on that even the so called experts. pretty funny. take a look at it if you have a chance
