Solving The Mystery Of A Family Letter 'Signed' By Babe Ruth
Almost every weekday morning, one of my new friends at the wonderful coffee house where I do a lot of my work, the Brooklyn Commune in my Windsor Terrace neighborhood, folds his New York Times up in a small square to work on the crossword puzzle.

Lee Israel, a Writer Proudest of Her Literary Forgeries, Dies at 75
In a rented storage locker on Manhattan’s Upper West Side, the writer Lee Israel kept a cache of antique typewriters: Remingtons and Royals, Adlers and Olympias. Each was tenderly curated, hung with a tag whose carefully lettered names — Edna, Dorothy, Noël, Eugene O’Neill, Hellman, Bogart, Louise Brooks — hinted at the felonious intimacy for which the machines were used.

A brief guide to Winston Churchill facsimile letters
As both a collector and dealer I am always on the lookout for anything signed by Churchill, so every week I do a search for items signed by Winston Churchill on ebay, and each week I come across the same signed “authentic” letters that are a little less than “authentic” They may have come from Winston Churchill’s office, but they were certainly not written or signed by him.

Buyer Beware: How To Spot Baseball Autograph Forgeries

Years ago, I enjoyed a huge adrenalin rush at a flea market in Brooklyn’s Park Slope section. For a few hundred dollars I bought a beautiful baseball from the late 1940s with the signatures of the great Brooklyn Dodgers such as Jackie Robinson, Pee Wee Reese, and Roy Campanella. But my baseball was a bust when I tried consigning it to an auction held by Lelands, a top New York house. Mike Heffner, the president, informed me that many of the autographs were penned by the Dodger’s clubhouse boy.

Tips for identifying fake autographs

If the price is too good to be true, it is probably a fake.

If a company offers an autographed item well below competitors' prices and market value, then consumers should be wary. An example would include Michael Jordan basketballs, which some companies sell for as low as $150. Given Jordan's current exclusive contract with Upper Deck and difficulties associated with obtaining his autograph, the Tuff Stuff Magazine market value of an autographed Jordan Basketball is $500, while Upper Deck Michael Jordan autographed basketballs retail for up to $1,500. (Caution: a high price does not by any means suggest authenticity either.)
