Autograph discovered several instances where American Royal Arts used photos altered to look like musicians were signing guitars to make buyers believe the guitars were genuinely autographed. Inside Edition confronted ARA president Jerry Gladstone with a few of them. Show ran Nov. 23, 2009.

A Fantastic Report!!! I do take a Picture of the person of every autograph being signed. I always try to use a 35-mm cameria so later once I develope the pictures, I can cut the negatives strips and tape the negative to it's picture, and place the picture with the autograph. So when I sell, You get the Item, The autograph, the picture, and the negative. "Picture Proof Autographs"

I believe with all the forgeries in this business, taken Picture, videos of your autograph being signed is better than not doing anything at all at the time of signing.
I find it funny that a forger will spend all his time to try to doctor up a photo to Proof that the autograph he is selling is legit, when a collector won't take the time to prove that the autograph that he got was authentic
