I owned an Art & Collectibles Gallery in Rancho Mirage Ca for over 25 years, over those years, I have collected and also appraised art and authenticated many signatures and artwork from Monet to Picasso, Red Skelton and many more including Elvis. I framed art for the likes of Red Skelton, President Gerald Ford (Ford for over 15 years) and President Bill Clinton as well as Lucille Ball, Loretta Young, Ginger Rogers, George Montgomery, Dinah Shore and Walter Annenberg, Bob Kane (Batman Artist), Baseball Hall of Fame, Graeme Baxter “World Famous Golf Artist” and many more. I have also framed a Babe Ruth Display that was donated to the Baseball Hall of Fame. I have another customer that I have framed memorabilia that was on the moon as well as a set of pens and quills that go back as far as President Washington. I met many of these people in person and received autographs from many of them as well. I have autographs of Bob Dylan, The Beatles, Rolling Stones, Jimi Hendrix, Janis Joplin and about 300 others. I bought Elvis and Janis Joplin and Jimi Hendrix and others from an estate sale in Germany many, many years ago from a massive collection that was sold off, I wish I could have afforded more of them. This was about 40 years ago, back when there was not as much paperwork on collectibles. I paid good money for these and know they are original autographs. I have even sent some of my autographs that I have seen signed in person out to professional authenticators. They claim to be experts and I found that they were often wrong telling me that some of the autographs I sent them, even though I stood there when they signed them were not to be authentic. Beware of some of the authenticators out there. The reason I am selling my collection is that this was always going to be my retirement business, giving me something to do in retirement. I hope this might answer any questions you might have about me. Howard AMT83733L
