I just texted him, and he said he was going to buy it next week.

I should also mention, not that it's much of a defense, but I was pretty plastered the night he sent me the original pics, so I didn't look at them as objectively as I should have.

So no harm, no foul. Makes me feel good you're such a smart group.

3 "signed" Beatles fanclub photos (fake...secetarial signed )

A genuine typed questionaire signed and hand amended by George Harrison.

Pete Townsend

All members of a group called "Episode Six" 2 members of whom went on to form Deep Purple.

Countless other 60,s pop and rock stars.

Pulled a signed copy of "We" by Charles Lindbergh out of the dumpster at my old job, sold it for $1300. Same job, same dumpster, rescued a metal sculpture by Georges Liautaud, also signed. Sold that for $3500 to Jonathan Demme. I miss that job sometimes.

Ive had two idiotic misses that stick in my gullet when i think of them , one definetly finanial and one historic but with good financial possibilities.

Financial :roll:

I had just started my second hand record buisness and the shelves were quite bare and needed filling with something. I thought i knew my strong points of musical knowledge as well as my weak points , but my lack of knowledge in the Classical music market was to cost me dear because i made the mistake of assuming they were mostly worthless.

This guys Granddad had died and he was emptying his bungalow of everything including his masses of vintage UK Decca , Columbia , EMI Classical records , all from the late 50,s and early 60's and most importantly in STEREO when the UK pressings were second to none within the record world ,and STEREO recordings only bought by well-to-do people who could afford this new-fangled STEREO equiptment ..... all highly sought after........unknown to me! :cry:

Anyway , i looked him in the eye and said with absolute conviction (misplaced) that they were practicaly worthless and that no-body wanted them , but to fill a half of a rack on one of the empty shelves in my shop i offered him £20 for a small
armful that i randomly picked out...then as a favour to him i helped him put the rest of the records into a skip (dumpster) outside his house....it was filled to the brim

A few months passed and as i suspected no-one touched the 15 to 20 records that i bought from him , didnt sell even 1 ...until.

A collector walked in who knew what was what within the classical music record world and bought the lot , well made an offer really , of £150 for the lot on the proviso that i kept any classic records that came in my shop for him to have first dabs on (at this point i was still naive to the market) , but over the months i started to gen up myself on what was what and how much i could sell them for now that the internet was coming of age (Ebay had only been going about 2-3 years).

I look back in abject horror of what I threw away in my ignorance.

I ve since taught myself to become quite an authority on classical music records from our Golden years of pressings ....i never did find a haul quite like that one ever again.

Just one example of what Decca "SXL" Stereo wideband labels can sell for even to this day.
