Last year, we noticed an set of autographs for sale by an auction house in Ireland. The auction house claimed that the card contained a full set of autographs, but we pointed out that the 'Paul' autograph had actually been done by John. We received some quite angry communications from the auction house, doubting our word and criticising us for suggesting that ANY item bought from an auction should be independently verified. It was therefore very interesting when we noticed that the set of autographs is once more for sale (by a different auctioneer, but with the same original seller) and with the description now corrected: http://www.the-saleroom.com/
Our original point was that, if you are considering buying something from an auction, you should always get it independently verified and no reputable auctioneers will object to that. That point still stands, and we applaud this auction house for taking the trouble to verify the autographs on this card. We think it's a great item!
