    Default Are these autogrphs authentic?

    Iím a new member to this forum but Iíve been reading here for about five years. I joined because recently Iíve been wondering whether a few autographs I got 8-10 years ago are authentic or not. I thought guys would be the best judges.

    I have the images stored locally on my computer but I can't figure out how to get them included in my post. Can anyone help?

    Okay, figured it out. My files were to big. I've got it now. Thanks Mishar for helping me out.

    Let me tell you the story of how I got the autographs.

    Back in í95 I was part of the VHML as was Valerie Bertinelli. I wrote her an email asking if I sent a picture with a S.A.S.E. would Eddie sign it. Surprisingly she responded telling me where to send it. Back then Van Halen were being handled by Page and Associates and thatís where I send my mail. With the picture I also wrote Eddie a note telling him that I also played and that I had one of his EBMM guitars. I asked him if I could have one of his Marlboroís so I could shellac it and mount it to my guitar. Seemed like a good idea at the time. This is what I got back. Under Edís signature it says ďSorry Iím out smokes right now.Ē


    In í96 I wrote again and asked if I could have a signed promo photo since the picture I sent last time was just from a magazine. This is what I got back.


    In í97 since his look had again changed I wrote again and asked for an updated photo. I got no photo but the following letter from Barbara Page and one of Eddie pickís with his signature on one side and Wolfgang on the other.


    I think Van Halen split from Page and Associates shortly after that because all of my subsequent letters came back to me unopened. So my question is do you guys think these autographs are authentic or do you think that someone at Page and Associates signed them? Thanks.

    These are terrific. And the best thing about them is that they are specifically signed to you. That is the only way I would want an autograph. What I'd give for a "To Angie love Eddie Van Halen"..... Or even better, on a cheque!!

    Default Holy Crap!!!!

    That is so weird!!!!! I have an autograph that a friend got for me in an airport in Miami in 1992 that says "Lookout for Chris, Ed Van Halen" (his name and mine too) and it is IDENTICAL to the first pic you posted!!! Since that's the case, unless there's some nut running around signing Edwards autograph, it's most definitely authentic. I wish I could upload it on here but I know there's no possible way I could figure it out. But I'm telling you it is EXACTLY like that first one (without the actual photo, mines on a torn piece of envelope). It's sitting in a frame on my desk next to this computer monitor as I type this. I always kind of wondered if it were real or not. Now I know.

    Thanks everyone. I feel pretty confident now that they're the real deal.

    When I sent the first picture I also sent a sharpie for Ed to sign with. I was hoping that I would get it back so I could also have the pen that he used to sign with. But he kept it.

    If Val told you where to send in your request and that PR company also responded to you with the goods, I'd bet they are legit.

    My best guess is Ed thought your cigarette request was funny and wrote that line as a result. Frame em and display em!
