Peter O'Toole - Lawrence of Arabia Photo

Started this discussion. Last reply by Etienne P. Jan 10. 5 Replies

Does anyone have an opinion of whether or not this Peter O'Toole signature is authentic? I saw it at auction just a few minutes before it ended, so I had to act fast because I love the photo and I…Continue

Leonard Cohen?

Started this discussion. Last reply by hbw60 Oct 28, 2020. 3 Replies

I recently purchased a signed photo of Leonard Cohen, purportedly from his personal collection and given to a former secretary. The seller claimed to be listing the items on behalf of this secretary,…Continue

About 10 years ago, I wrote a letter to Alan Rickman and asked for an autograph. A short time later, I received a letter from his assistant, saying that he was currently overseas filming, and…Continue

At what point does authentication become unreliable?

I'm preparing to send a few items to Beckett for authentication. Mostly items that were collected through the mail years ago, that I want to ensure aren't secretarial signatures.But in certain cases,…Continue

"As you point out, like every person who uses a writing instrument, there definitely is a difference between a hasty signature and one that is more "intentioned". Besides O'Toole, another actor that comes to mind who it seems like…"

"It hasn't been authenticated. I have a hard time comparing it with others, because Peter's signature can vary so much. It changed as he got older. And he was a prolific signer through the mail, so there were variations between his…"

"You are right, hbw60, it is a great image.  However, the signature doesn't look right...also IMHO.  Has it been authenticated by PSA, JSA, etc.?  Perhaps others will add their thoughts here. I have found that there are more…"

Peter O'Toole - Lawrence of Arabia Photo

Does anyone have an opinion of whether or not this Peter O'Toole signature is authentic? I saw it at auction just a few minutes before it ended, so I had to act fast because I love the photo and I really wanted to add this one to my collection (Lawrence of Arabia is my favorite film). It looks good to me, but a more expert opinion would be most welcome.…See More

hbw60 commented on Mike Shepherd's blog post Short-Sighted Collecting Habits
"It's an interesting topic to contemplate, because the way our minds can change often doesn't make any logical sense. For me, I think time can be a factor when I'm considering purchasing an autograph. Historical relevance over time can…"

hbw60 replied to nickmc211's discussion Neil Armstrong
"Thank you for confirming that. I felt relatively sure that was the case, but I wasn't positive. Mostly, I just remember the section of Neil's biography where Vivian was hired. When Neil was at NASA, he had teams of assistants and…"

"As mentioned, Steve Zarelli is the best person to ask. He has an email authentication service on his website, and he's considered the biggest space expert in the industry. I'm not an autograph expert, but I am a huge Armstrong fan…"

hbw60 replied to Steve Cyrkin, Admin's discussion Show us your Joe Biden, Kamala Harris & Jill Biden Autographs!
"This is almost certainly a pre-print. I wrote to Biden around the same era (2013), and got one that looks exactly like this. I don't have it any more for comparison, but it was the same photo/inscription."

hbw60 replied to Steve Cyrkin, Admin's discussion Show us your Joe Biden, Kamala Harris, Jill Biden Autographs!
"That's such a fantastic inscription! Definitely one of the best. A couple of years ago, I got a signed copy of his book through Barnes and Noble. I bought it with the hopes that he'd run again, so it worked out well."

hbw60 replied to ralf müller's discussion Apollo 11 Crew Signed - Real?
"Buzz Aldrin's signature looks really good. The handwriting looks spot-on to me. However, it looks like a somewhat recent signature (from the last 20 years or so). Neil Armstrong stopped signing about 30 years ago. That doesn't mean…"

hbw60 replied to mark harmon's discussion First and last name dedications
"For security reasons, I don't think there's anything inherently risky about having your name on the item, since it's something so widely available anyway. However, it can potentially annoy the signer, because they'll know exactly…"

hbw60 replied to M.'s discussion BOLO: Natalie Portman Signed Books at Indie Bookshops
"Thanks so much for posting this! After spending an hour looking for bookshops that still had this in stock, I gave up. But I was able to find one on eBay for under $200. Considering that authentic Natalie Portman autographs tend to cost around…"

hbw60 replied to Alfredo Tulipan's discussion How is this possible?
"For me, the easiest indicator is to compare the "shine" of the two inks. Hold the paper under a light, look closely, and tilt it back and forth until the angle reflects the light off the ink. Printer ink reflects light differently than…"
