That also isn't the signature style he was predominantly using at that time.

Could be real, just as (more) likely isn't.

CT signatures are two-a-penny anyway (thanks to all the limited editions), so I don't think it is worth attributing too much value to them, even where they are genuine.

I had dealings with a vinyl seller many years ago who employed the exact same template of selling signed copies yet did not mention it anywhere, then when he got caught he changed the tactic to only saying that he could not guarantee items were genuine. He got into trouble in the end but another seller then started who was connected. Long story short.... This sig not only looks fake as pointed out but the tactics are slippery.

As soon as I see any seller that deals predominantly in signed items, I assume they are a crook.

I certain employ the same attitude now Stu and am attuned to the tactics used by them.
