But this is uncalled for people know beforehand and ask stupid questions knowing very well the answer so people like you have your day with this man.

Gotcha, I didn't know it was on every copy as I don't go out of my way to buy the Lichter books - there were just a couple in the collection I bought. Never considered that it would be printed on the books given the fact that it didn't look authentic to me in the beginning. So, not only was it not actually signed, the reproduction is not even of a real EP signature. Typical Lichter I agree.
a very good forgery
I've never bought anything from him personally, so I don't really have a handle on his pricing, etc. I think it's been pretty standard thought over the years that things were over-priced. There are others guilty of that too, so again, I can't say.

Bought a life long collector's entire collection recently. In the lot was the Paul Lichter book, "Elvis In Hollywood." On the back cover is a written message: "To Paul...I like this one best. Elvis Presley" The scan is below...anyone think this may be legit? The book came out in 76 I believe. That's all I know about the history of the item. I bought the collection from the daughter of the collector (who died recently) and she knows nothing of its history either.

It's a tough one, the signature does have some
merit in my opinion or just a very good forgery

I am sorry. Not intended really for you but there are some posters that are sometimes useful for everyone but many times really useless Imo..but they might think that people really like to listen to the same scratched record repeating over and over and over....This is a big place here..easy to get out of people's way if you don't like them. Or In my case if they do not like me....davidtcb1 wrote:The original post was not meant as a "set up" of any kind. It was a legitimate search for an opinion, and like most every other post I've been involved with on this site, ended up being a petty argument. Kinda sorry I asked...hard to get a simple answer around here without everyone coming out of the woodwork swinging their rods.

No problem. I had an autograph dream (really!) and in the dream ..some friends and I are in some fair or bazar with ferris wheel etc..and in the middle of the crowd there is ELVIS! (I was a kid in the dream in the 70s) and he is signing away like in the home movies on the movie sets etc..and one of my kid friends somehow breaks through the crowd and I can see him coming with a piece of paper or something waving it with a big grin and of course I am thinking wow!!! He got one!! But all of a sudden a guy from nowhere really tall snatches it from my friend and with a look of disgust tells all of us surrounding (by now) kids...one word. FAKE!!!davidtcb1 wrote:I appreciate it JLGB....You are correct though, some of the folks are on here to argue about the most ridiculous things that mean nothing and usually are so far off topic it's not funny. It shouldn't be a contest of "here's what I know and you don't" but a place to discuss the reason we are all here - Elvis - that's the common thread. Of course, so many people have lost common courtesy and sense these days, nothing surprises me anymore. Thank you for the sensible reply.

Did you know Paul is basically afraid to answer his phone.....that he screens every call....did you hear that?.....he screens EVERY TELEPHONE CALL........and if he recognizes a number......he has call display....that would connect him to someone who is not happy with him.....he will let his answering machine pick up the call......If.....one the other hand you are just some poor schmuck looking to spend some money......he will pickup the phone as you are leaving your name and number on his answering machine. That's how he operates......JLGB......I assume you answer your phone at home like a normal person....it rings......you answer. Not your friend Pauly boy......The internet and more correctly this mb allows us to venture forth information that can assist our fellow collectors. Guys like Lichter use to pretty much have the ability to run wild and on a worldwide basis. But with the internet.....news of their activites travel quickly. Lichters reputation is soiled and sullied.....he continues to sell fake autographs on his website.....and some here aren't atuned to those facts. That's how guys like Lichter stay in business....the uninformed........the believers......One more thing JLGB.....your man Paul reads this messge board on a regular basis......long before you got here....he even posted on here.....under the name appollo....he doesn't post here anymore.....but you can bet your ass he still visits to read the posts.....I have nothing positive to say to him or about him......how about you?...........uf
