On a more serious note, look at their auctions. Specifically their completed (not sold) auctions. Don't know who this person is, but they seem to have a lot of autographs for sale. Yet apparently most people aren't suckers. $100 for Rolling Stones? Nope, no sale. $44 for Madonna? No sale. Most of his auctions -- no sale. Both auctions with Prince autographs -- don't look like his autograph. Would he really have signed a Batman DVD "Prince"? The DVD didn't come out at the earliest 1997. He wasn't even using Prince again in 1997. The seller knows a guitar used by Prince just sold for over a hundred thousand dollars, but you can score this guitar at the buy it now price of $1250? GTFOOHWTBS, ebay seller.

Then again, they could just be an idiot and are selling Prince autographs on the cheap.

I find it very annoying that these 'autographs' are regularly on eBay, without any enforcement of authenticity. Prince fans are very well aware that he hasn't really signed ANY autographs since around 1993-1994 (just after the name change). I don't really think there are any authenticated exceptions. So, I would treat any 'autograph' advertised as fake if it is purported to be from after 1993, such as on a picture taken after 1993.

Does everyone agree?
