On December 2, Julien's Auctions is selling The Collection of Tompkins and Bush. The collection contains 465 lots of Michael Jackson memorabilia, 294 of them autographed by him. Michael Bush and the late Dennis Tompkins were Michael Jackson's
costume designers for 25 years, during Jackson's most successful period. They were the consignors of the signed Thriller jacket that Julien's sold for $1,800,000 in June 2011
At least 250 signatures are forgeries, we have had expert evaluation! see discussion here, multiple samples of Michael Jackson's signatures posted, none match those in Juliens auctions catalog..
there is a very good reason you are not familiar with this "version" of Michael Jackson's signature. That is because these are NOT Michael Jackson's signatures. They are BLATANT FORGERIES. TO BE CLEAR: These items, publicly advertised in Juliens 2012 Thompkins-Bush Michael Jackson auction catalog are OVERT FORGERIES and are NOT Michael Jacksons genuine signature! 1.) PAGE AFTER PAGE in the Juliens 2012 Bush-Michael Jackson auction catalog of signatures with an awkward, amateurish looking loop on the N in Jackson - the last letter of the last name. NOTE: MICHAEL JACKSON DID NOT SIGN THE N in HIS LAST NAME JACKSON with this awkward, amateurish loop. 2.) Michael Jackson used 3 different styles of J in Jackson over the years. Single Line J, Line and Swoop J (or Two Swoop), and Single Swoop J.
When MJ used the "two swoop" style J in Jackson, HE did it with STYLE, FLUIDITY, ELEGANCE and GRACE, there are heavy and light strokes and you can tell he produced the signature QUICKLY - just like we all do when signing OUR OWN NAME.
Conversely, ALL! the forged J's in Juliens upcoming 12/2/12 auction are COMPLETELY without FLOW, STYLE and GRACE. They are HEAVY and CLUNKY and AMATEUR looking. THERE ARE NUMEROUS OTHER DECREPANCIES CLEARLY MANIFESTED IN THE JULIENS AUCTION FORGERIES. They show HESITATION MARKS where the forger slowed up their hand movement to THINK about what to do NEXT. Every persons signature, while retaining its own overall unique fingerprint, shows slight variations based on day, month, year, situation, mood, etc. NOTE: There is NO variation to these fraudulent signatures being advertised for sale by Juliens. CLEARLY, the signatures were mass produced and NOT done over the years, as is
being represented by Darren Julien and Michael Bush. As someone with an astute eye for detail, I have diligently studied
Michael Jacksons signature and handwriting style for several years. I have done extensive research through PSA/DNA, PAAS, JSA, Autograph Magazine and have monitored eBay auctions of both genuine and forged Michael Jackson signatures, on a regular basis for several years. I KNOW I've seen forgeries by this SAME forger as the Juliens signatures all over eBay for 2-3 years up until very recently. Interestingly, I can no longer find any active or completed auctions on eBay by this forger.
Notably, the hat on page 184 of Juliens catalog - the forgery on the Budapest police hat - I KNOW FOR A FACT that I saw a hat JUST LIKE THIS WITH THE SAME OBVIOUS FORGERY FOR SALE ON EBAY RECENTLY - within the last 2-3 weeks. THAT TOO HAS BEEN REMOVED from the ebay database.
I MUST TELL YOU that the HUNDREDS of fake signatures being passed off by Juliens Auctions and Michael Bush in their upcoming anticipated Sell Off of Illegal merchandize are some of the most shamelessly AMATEUR forgeries of Michael Jacksons signature that I have ever seen. ALL THE TELL TALE SIGNS OF A FORGERY ARE PRESENT ON EACH AND EVERY
ONE OF THESE ITEMS. The massive quantity and obviously POOR QUALITY of these fake Michael autographs, along with ALL of the involved Persons brazenness to do this IN THE STARK LIGHT OF DAY.. IS UTTERLY SHOCKING.
THIS AUCTION MUST NOT TAKE PLACE!
PLEASE express your opinion as to not recognizing the Julien's signature "examples" as those of ANY genuine Michael Jackson signature you have EVER seen to Twitter accounts: @JuliensAuctions @tompkinsandbush @MJonlineteam - AND via email to:
PLEASE ASK THE PARTIES INVOLVED TO STOP THIS AUCTION! Thank you.
