    That's a very nice item that I'd imagine would fetch quite a lot had it not been, well, ruined.

    Aside from whether the autographs are genuine or not, I noticed that the seller also listed a stop smoking aid, which they claim to have worked for them (in an effort to kick their 60 a day habit). Not a very pleasant association with all the great vintage posters (regardless of where they have been stored up until now) if you ask me. Yuck!

    At least the Morrissey signature is fake, the debut the same seller has is even worse.

    You are quite possibly correct...
    I was just going by the fact Morrissey's signature in the early days was quite different (and relatively plain).
    However, on closer inspection, there are one or two rather suspicious bits in that signature.

    I am still not 100% certain that these are fakes, the other 3 signatures look spot on... :confused:

    Glad someone has mentioned this, as i had my doubts an all.

    I bid on the how soon is now poster just this week from this chap. Got outbid at 47 quid though. 2 minutes later, I got a second chance offer from this seller. Seem he had 2 perfect how soon is now posters.

    I know its not entirely unusual to have 2 of the same posters as I have myself - but previous feedback states he has already got rid of these ones before.

    May mail him to do some digging.

    Total Fake 100%. Surer than death itself and also the debut LP sigs are crap. Tries to legitimize his auctions by including various rare vinyls( ting ting 7s, Smiths German multicolored LP etc) There is only one genuine signed item and that's the rare Oasis Colombia promo vinyl signed by Noel.

    You are right Billybud. Just another laughable badly 'drawn' fake signature. I wonder who is dumb enough to buy this crap.

    cheap and fake?http://cgi.ebay.com/MORRISSEY-SIGNE...&otn=3&po=LVI&ps=63&clkid=6814685599655248872

    100% FORGERY for the cheap and fake one....can't you tell? ;)

    expensive and fake? http://cgi.ebay.com/MORRISSEY-SMITH...400134370722?cmd=ViewItem&hash=item5d29ddf5a2

    ALMOST 100% SURE IT IS AUTHENTIC for the expensive one. If I m not wrong, this Morrissey autograph is circa mid 90s. Note respectable seller here and high starting price. Also a famous and respected seller of 100% authentic Beatles and 60s rock groups signatures which are indictative of seller's reliability.
