Hello your Queenzoners !

What's your opinion about this F.M. signature ? Fake or genuine ?

Inform Jackie Gun over at the QIFC her email address is probably on their website at queenworld.com.

She answered me rather quickly when I was planning to purchase a autographed album on Ebay.

Good Luck!

Kriz ;o)


Long Live Queen!!!

No

It looks as though the first name was done one letter at a time.

Agreed PG.

And Scully (as I'm sure you'll read this), just out of interest, have you ever sent any of the fan-club obtained fake signatures on your site to Jacky for 'verification' (obviously not saying they were fan-club obtained)?

They're so obviously fake that Jacky would have to admit it, giving you the perfect setup for revealing to her their origins.

Just a thought...

This one is 100% fake.

"have you ever sent any of the fan-club obtained fake signatures on your site to Jacky for 'verification' (obviously not saying they were fan-club obtained)?"

That wouldn't move us forward anyway. Of course they would be verified as "genuine" and I do not have any 100% proof that it's a lie although I'm personally sure about that.

Why say "of course they would be verified as genuine"?

If you don't initially tell her that they came from the Fan Club, she would just purely judge them on the state of the signatures, and they're such bad fakes that surely Jacky would have to verify them as the obvious fakes they are.

It would just be fun to then tell her that the signatures she'd just verified as fake came from the fanclub.

Yeah, it doesn't move anyone forward, but you get one over on Jacky.

Something I've been wanting to say for a while...

I personally sont see why people are prepared to pay any decent money for a signed item. For me, a signed item is something that you can show your mates and say I got that signed by *inset celeb here* when I met them at *insert location here*. If you were not there when it was signed, then to me it loses its value.

I know that Freddie cant be applied to this rule, what with him being dead and all that, but I still wouldnt pay loads for a FM signature. Another result of not being there when the item was signed is that you don't KNOW the signature is real. I'm sure theres some very good forgeries out there.

I'd have to agree with you DeaconJohn. I've only bought one signed item and a couple years later it just doesn't seem special to me at all (nothing Queen-related). It still resides in the original shipping envelope on a shelf and I don't feel the signature has much meaning really.

I've received a few signed photos by writing to celebs, but the only one that is dear to me is from Carly Simon because she signed it especially to me.

I guess the main appeal must be the added value but considering the number of fakes that turn up, it seems a risky business.
