    There was a feature on the last episode of Real Sports on HBO that dealt with memorabilia forgeries flooding the market. They talked about mostly sports memorabilia, but the scary thing is that many of these "authenticating" agencies which issue COA's get the autographs wrong or, at worst, can be part of the forgery scam...I wouldn't buy an autograph from anyone...There is just too much fakery out there...

    One of the things I do as a hobby is collect sports memoribilia as well as autograph's. I have done this for years and have a pretty vast collection of things. So I do consider myself pretty on top of what is real and what is not.
    These auto's look real good, almost too good. They remind me of something signed with a auto pen. Auto pen's are something that usually the Publicist or a band associate can use to duplicate any signature. Once the origional sig. is set. the auto pen can knock out hundred's of identical signature's.
    So no I can't say for certain if this is real or not.
    I am suspicous of these though because if you look at the Cheap Trick auto's there are things that are not right and I suspect they are fake. I have several Cheap Trick auto's so I am pretty familiar with how they all sign. Robin Zander inparticular is way off base.
    Would I buy from this site, all I would say is buyer beware.
    Good luck to you.

    One thing I noticed about that site is that there is statement claiming the autographs have been authenticated by an expert.

    From what I see, the signatures look real but it looks like they were superimposed onto the jpg. I'm sure one of my books has the same photo. Need to go look dig them out of the box.

    Couldn't agree more, save your dough. Unless you see the person sign it...it's fake as far as I'm concerned.

    So there's no guarantees with this getting anything that's been autographed?? Sounds like there's a lotta scammers out there.

    Bummer.

    The only thing I can contribute here is this...

    I've seen that signed photo before on eBay. There were a number of copies for sale at the same time. That doesn't mean that isn't the original, but I know that there were multiple "laser" copies being sold, all at the same time. Just my 2 cents, but I would check and see if the seller has a money back guarentee. Once you get it in your hands, you'll at least know if the signatures are in original pen ink or if they've been reproduced.

    Here's my 2 cents....take it for what it's worth:

    Sactofan is correct. You gotta be really careful about fake autographs. The internet is a really easy place to circulate forgeries. I don't think I'd trust that site.

    Secondly, in response to Turbo's "ebay" comments...this is VERY important:

    DON'T EVER BUY AUTOGRAPHS ON EBAY. PERIOD!!! EVEN IF THEY CLAIM TO HAVE A COA (Certificate of Authenticity).

    You see, in order for a C.O.A. to be valid, it has to be signed by a Notary Public (as having witnessed the signature) and the notary's seal must be stamped on the C.O.A. as well. Furthermore, there must be a serial number/hologram on the item and the same serial number must be on the C.O.A so that you can prove the C.O.A. goes with the item in question.

    When you purchase autographed items on eBay and other unreputable sources, they'll claim their going to include a C.O.A., but it's always just a piece of paper that the seller himself signed stating that the autograph is authentic. Sometimes, they'll use their business' name on the C.O.A and claim the autograph is authentic. But they NEVER include the Notary's stamp & signature. Without the notary's information, your autograph is worthless and there is no way of proving it's real (unless you go through the very painful & expensive process of hiring an independent firm to try and validate the signature).

    Good luck in whatever you decide.
