I wasn't sure whether to put this in Collector's Corner or not. I'm not selling or buying anything, just interested in starting a discussion over an ebay listing. But since that listing is a collectible, I thought I'd put it here.
In any case, last night one of my roommates was perusing the going price for autographs on ebay (he has an item he's considering selling), and he came across this listing. When he showed it to me, my response was "no way no how is that Bowie's autograph." I know what Bowie's autograph looks like - it only says "Bowie," and it's a lot messier and sort of "rounder" than that, and he always puts the year when he signs an item.
I have an autograph that I know damn well was signed by him 'cause I was right there when he did it. The autograph that I have looks like every other "official" autograph of his that I've ever seen, including this one.
I am pretty sure that the autographed Jareth picture linked above is a fraud. What do you all think?
Why do people go through the trouble of trying to sell fake autographs (which often don't sell for that much anyway), and how can you avoid ending up with fraud autographs when you don't know the artists' signature on sight?
