I could go on....
This is a collector's dream come true.
Proofs, (fully signed) autographs, shirts, oddities, posters of every kind (poster collectors have your wallets ready).
Simply incredible.
Please go check it out.
There are lots of music-related items currently on Omega - worth a search or two.

The above goodies appear to be accepting bids until June 30.


I don't think I can stress enough what an amazing opportunity this is - some brilliant, unique stuff on offer here.
Currently drooling,
FWD.

This is interesting. There is a Morrissey signed copy of The Queen Is Dead sleeve available.
This looks very similar to the one I have, down to the smudges and ink!
Yeah different. But they were probably both forged on the same day.

Yeah pretty standard and plenty of them done for promotion. Same with Bigmouth 12”s, signed along the bottom in a similar fashion, but in black ink.
