Hi Steve. What's going on with all the repeat emails daily? I wind up deleting all of them for lack of time to go through them.

Steve,

Its Matty Michanowicz.  Thank you for all of your professional responses to my questions regarding the Jim Morrison signed photograph.  I am infact going to sell it utilizing your auction site.  Allowing your company to profit from the expert answers to my questions is the least I can do.  This little profit will allow you to continue to provide others the services that were extended to me.  A few questonis before I begin to send out the photo.

1.  Where shoul I send it out for authication that is recognizable by collectors?  PSA is my best guess

2.  Any names for the person that reviews rock autographs that is respected in the community?

3.  As you suggested "upgrade" my Paypall info.

4.  I plan to list this item around February 15.  I will read how your site recommends how to list.  There is currently an autograph of Jim Morrison being sold.  I will keep my auction open after that one closes inorder to capture any potential bidders that missed out on the first auction.

5. Any additional input from you or your team is much appreciated.

Sincerly,

Matty Michanowicz

PS  Feel free to pick up the phone to call me for any questions.  I travel to california about 6 times a year.  If you want to see this inperson, we may be able to arrange tthis. (if you are personally sitill interested in making the purchase)

I have a huge collection of Tupac autographs and historical writings that were written and signed by his hand, in las Vegas NV, about July 4, 1996. It is the largest collection of Tupac known and the most significant besides his BMW that recently came up for sale. The collection Includes four hand signed 2pac autographs, two signed Tupac Shakur autographs, 10 2over notations in Tupacs handwriting, and numerous other notations written in 2pacs hand. Including "Homeo Sexual Dog", ten "2over", Mandalay Bay Hotel & Casino, two Makaveli, Three Eric B., three Rakim, one Big Daddy Kane, four 50 Cent, 3 Quincy Delight Jones, seven Magic 1 # One "Zero Eight", and four "Easy E". The collection should be in the Rock N Roll hall of Fame. It would be a shame if this collection does not end up there.

Hi,  I just found your comments to me, three years after the fact!  I really was disappointed that AC was no longer being printed.  I joined here, but it is much more difficult to get around a website than sitting on the couch turning pages of a magazine, at least it is for me.  But I have renewed interest in sending for autographs, so I will stumble around here, trying to work all this stuff.  Also, I could not find any addresses here like you had in the magazine.  Am I missing them?  Will try to post comments, like you suggested, but I may mess that up, too.  I already tried once, but lost the whole thing.  Thanx.  Phyllis

Posted on March 22, 2017 at 10:00am 1 Comment

No autograph is more popular than Mickey Mantle's. And no autograph is forged more.



Many Mantle forgeries are easy to identify, once you know what to look for. Telling a skilled forgery from a genuine Mantle takes a lot…

Guitar Signed by The Beatles, Rolling Stones and Other Artists in the TCM-Bonhams March 27 Auction

Posted on March 8, 2017 at 8:00am 24 Comments

Last I heard, there were no genuine, intact Beatles-signed guitars known. The only one was reportedly destroyed in a Malibu, Calif. landslide about 15 years ago.



RR Auction sold one a Beatles signed guitar around 2010, but the owner had tapped the autographs down with an awl to, um, "preserve them."…

Posted on September 6, 2016 at 11:30am 11 Comments

The judge rejected Michael Johnson's fourth attempt to add shill bidding allegations to his RR Auction lawsuit a few weeks ago. With his attempt to make it a class action lawsuit failing in March 2015 and his attempt to add shill bidding and another claim failing on August 12, Johnson's case heads to trial in January, apparently on his original claims only.…
