Good spot Khamul.

So can we expect to see these items on Ebay from dogfark fairly soon????


I don't think so, based on a teeny bit of inside information and mostly speculation. GTC has selected some people to acquire assets, etc., and I assume that Mark Faith is one of those - just an intermediary to provide some anonymity to the actual collector who is putting this collection together.

I have copies in hand now that the auction is done - they wouldn't sell me more than one before the auction, they were concerned they would run out. I think they are pretty much gone now, but I got enough.

Drop me an email if you still want one - they will be $35 in the USA, and $45 worldwide (this mammoth catalog weighs in around 2 pounds - beyond the Tolkien items, it has a treasure trove of Hollywood photos that are a blast to browse through).

I wouldn't mind seeing the pic(s) as well! (as a side note, let me know what kind of image upload troubles you had, perhaps there is something I can fix. It may just be that your image was too large relative to the max file size I currently have set, but I can increase that now that spam is more under control).

Back on the authenticity question, I have a copy signed by CT of the US Monsters and Critics that looks identical to yours (given the very low-res scan from eBay) that has excellent provenance. CT was a guest at the Marquette event back in 1987 and signed quite a few items there for people. I would guess yours is perfectly legit with the evidence available.
