Alex De Luca and Wakefield Auctioneers and Appraisals Are Criminals "Authenticating" Fake Autographs

Posted Dec 2, 2016 | Filed under Autograph Collecting Tips | Comments (0)
Legitimate autograph dealers who have been around a while know that while the problem with fake autographs is bad in sports, it's much worse with celebrities and Hollywood autographs. Recently, one particular "authenticator" has flooded eBay and the internet with obviously forged celebrity autographs, mostly cast "signed" photos and posters: Alex De Luca of "Wakefield Auctioneers and Appraisals." If you happen to own anything with this letter of authenticity, I have bad news for you: it's a worthless fake. If you Google this person or his Wakefield company, you will find absolutely nothing indicating either have any expertise whatsoever in the autograph business. For all I can tell it's a fictitious person and a fictitious company, which of course means the autographs are just as fictitious.
