Starting to see some of the items signed by the boys on the past few tours showing up in auctions like this: https://www.rrauctio...tail.cfm?IN=642  And no, this is NOT my auction ... mine is not for sale!  :dweez:
I feel the same way! My AFTK LP cover has priceless sentimental value to me- beat up with dented corner and all!  It's a wonderful memory of summer 2015.

I’m not into autographs but I can understand keeping one (sentimental value) or selling one (everyone needs bread sometimes). But it’s hard to understand buying one.

Especially considering that if you didn't witness them signing it or getting it from someone at their label or similarly close to the band, you don't really know if it's authentic.

Yup, that’d be the worst scenario. But even if (for example) I actually saw Lifeson sign a CD for blueschica, I wouldn’t buy it off of her. He signed it for her, not me. But I guess a collector is a collector and some will do that.

Never was a fan of the the ubiquitous "certificate of authenticity" myself.

The COA is only as god as the issuing authority ... more often than not, the COA is not worth the paper it is printed on.

In the case of the action I posted, I think the signatures are fine.  Just kind of a shame to see signed items from the guys showing up in auctions.  Bot, there is no law against selling items that one owns.

Not that I've kept track of this, but why would these be showing up just now? Wouldn't they have been around for most of the last 40 years?

Sure, they have been showing up for the last xxx years, but the ones showing up recently seem to be from the past few years where the band were signing items sent to the venues for shows -- their signatures changed some over the years.  Unfortunately, many people have shared the fact that they received many multiples of signatures by sending items to venue after venue.
