    Introduction Every day, uneducated buyers spend good money on non-authentic autographs. Most thinking they are getting a great deal or “nobody else must know about this!” Sadly, most educated buyers do and watch in wonderment why someone would spend hundreds (even thousands) of dollars on a worthless item. This can be seen at local live auctions, online auctions/sales and even retail stores. That is the core reason why we spent the time and effort on creating this guide. Although there are only 50 profiles within this book, we feel it covers a large magnitude of the most common forgeries currently available to buyers. How to Use This Guide The purpose of the guide is to help educate and show buyers, collectors and dealers what to look for when reviewing an autograph and to make a better decision on whether or not to buy. Although this guide is very comprehensive and has an in depth view of what’s good and bad, it shouldn’t be viewed as the “final authority” for authenticating autographs. An educated buyer is a smart buyer, but we encourage you to use authentication services when purchasing your valuable collectibles. We hope this information will help you avoid bad purchases and make wiser buying decisions. Autograph Examples Each profile will have a variety of different examples on different items such as: Balls, Jerseys, Bats/Sticks, Helmets, Gloves, Flats (Photos, Index Cards, Postcards), etc. Our attempt was to get high resolution examples for both authentic and non-authentic signatures – in some cases that was difficult (mainly forgeries). As for authenticity, we used certified authentic examples and the non-authentic examples are, in our opinion, not authentic. All authentic signatures will have a black border framing the image, the non-authentic will have a grey border.
  • 5000 Years of Tiles

    By Hans Van Lemmen

    Our Price: $39.95
    • Format: Paperback
    • ISBN-13: 9781588343987
    • Publisher: Smithsonian Books
    • Published: October 2013
    A comprehensive, full-color exploration of tile art and production worldwide, from earliest times to the present day. The book is both an authoritative work of reference and a visual delight, ranging from ancient Greece, where the first fired roof tiles date from as early as the third millennium BC, to twentieth-century Mexico. Along the way we encounter stunning examples of the tiler's art: the enormous English medieval floor pavements from Byland Abbey and Clarendon Palace; figural tiles from China, intended to adorn roofs and ward off evil; the famous Iznik tiles from the Islamic world, with their richly decorative patterns; the highly stylised ceramic tiles of the Arts and Crafts movement; and the tiles created by some of the finest ceramic artists and potters of the twenty-first century.Placing the tiles firmly in their historical and cultural context, the book highlights both continuity and diversity, the dissemination of techniques and designs, and how tile art in one time and place has inspired and rejuvenated those in others. Tiles are also studied in terms of function as well as form, and the full range of architectural and practical purposes for which they have been used - from floors to roofs, stoves to bathrooms, cathedrals to metro stations - will be explored, along with the various techniques employed to create such versatile pieces. 5000 Years of Tiles is the essential, most comprehensive single volume for anyone interested in the ceramic, decorative, and architectural arts.
