Posted on March 4, 2017 at 6:44am 6 Comments

On April 12, 1961, Soviet Air Force pilot Yuri Gagarin was the first human in space. Launched aboard his Vostok spacecraft, Gagarin orbited the Earth and beat American Alan Shepard into space by 23 days. 

On March 27, 1968, Yuri Gagarin was killed in a training flight crash at the age of 34.

Despite not being as much of a "household name" as Alan Shepard, John Glenn or Neil Armstrong, Gagarin is a tremendous historical figure and there is strong demand for his…

When the “proof picture” proves it's a fake!

Posted on August 1, 2016 at 10:00am 12 Comments

Astute collectors know that crooked sellers use phony proof pictures to sell their fakes all the time. They steal images from other signings, pluck a photo from an internet search, and so on.

These so-called proof pictures rarely prove anything, but in this case, it proves the item is a fake, or at least, it is not the same photo that is being offered!

Here is a photo supposedly signed by Joe DiMaggio, Whitey Ford, Billy Martin and Mickey Mantle.…

Hey, Steve. Wascher had suggested I might try contacting you for your thoughts on this Armstrong I came across. Sorry for the terrible quality, best pic I could get from seller at the moment. Would feel better knowing I had an expert eye look at this. Many thanks!  -Bill (hitmanten)

Hello.  I seem to remember if my memory serves me correctly that someone said you could kindly recommend someone who could iron out creases on archival paper as opposed to shirts!!!.  I was wondering if anyone deals in ironing out creases on photographs.  Apologies for bothering you if I've got the wrong person. kind regards & best wishes Michelle

Hey Mr. Z, was wondering if you know of anywhere online that I could find good examples of Bill Anders autograph? I can only seem to find autopen examples, I know he's a rare signer and theres probably more autopens and fakes out there than genuine sigs, but I've been looking at a few pieces and can't tell?http://www.ebay.ie/itm/371009705098?ssPageName=STRK:MEBIDX:IT&_trksid=p3984.m1426.l2649
