Steve Viola replied to Mark Roberts's discussion STUDY: Jerry Lee Lewis - TTM real or not real
"well if anything, the signature as I can see in that vintage photo matches up pretty well with the paid TTMs that have been posted here, but not the signed books.  Just my opinion of course.  Also remember this photo is from the 60s."

When I first joined this site I posted this piece to get opinions.  Everyone thought it was good including Roger.  I decided to post it on a facebook Elvis site for serious Elvis collectors.  It is mostly getting the thumbs down with people saying the market is flooded with them (alto I havent noticed that).  Anyway as the story goes an Elvis fan club president sent a gift to Elvis while in the Army return receipt so she could get his signature.  It is dated 1959 and I also have the envelope…See More

Dylan for 9.99!

Posted on September 11, 2012 at 6:26am 4 Comments

Bob Dylan signed Tempest CDs for 9.99 at NYC pop up store.  I was 23rd on line.  Unfortunately, there were only 15 signed copies, so the first 15 people on line got them.  WHAT A BARGAIN!
