Roger Eppersons (REAL) Mis-Authentication
Continue To Be Offered At R & R Auctions

RR Auction #346, Lot # 791, June 2009, The Clash, four signatures Pre-certified by Roger Epperson/Real along with the usual rubber stamped COA by RR Auction. RR Auction sold this album for $520.00

An informed collector, apparently who has more knowledge about rock and roll autographs than both Roger Epperson and RR Auction stated: "I have multiple signatures from all the band members in questions and this flat (album) looks to be as fake as the proverbial three dollar bill yet fully authenticated."

The collector sent an email to RR Auction about this forged album and here is their response.

"Thanks so much for your patience as I researched your concern further. The Clash LP, item 791 in our current June 346 (2009) auction came with good provenance and was approved by our authenticators. It was originally sold by Sothebys Amazon in the UK. This item was also reviewed and accepted as genuine by noted music autograph specialist Roger Epperson. As such, we stand behind this item with our life time money-back guarantee of authenticity. Best regards, Tricia Eaton."

It took until September for Trish Eaton to write the following, in part:".I am writing in response to the recent post regarding The Clash album we offered for sale in our June 2009 auction. Thanks to one of our astute and experienced customers concerns, we researched the signatures further. After re-evaluating the item, we finally came to the conclusion that the autographs were indeed not authentic.."

The album contained four autographs all authenticated as genuine by Roger Epperson. All four were determined found to be non authentic by a collector.

How can anyone who would like to have the autograph industry believe he is capable of authenticating autographs make four mistakes on one item? This factual story speaks for itself and Eppersons authenticating abilities. To make matters even worse, Eppersons recent attempt to get involved authenticating two signed books containing original art failed miserably.

Many feel it is an insult to the autograph community that Epperson continues to be utilized as an authenticator by RR Auction.

Its becoming quite evident from the evidence above and another story on this website that if you have purchased any rock & roll signed item that comes with an Epperson/Real COA, you may want to have it reexamined by a professional.

#4 REBUTTAL Owner of company

Roger Epperson proves himself again

AUTHOR: roger epperson - (United States of America)

THE NEW IADA-CC           A letter of apology to Roger Epperson Date: 2011-02-22 11:27:11 Notice to all members and visitors to the IADA-CC,      In recent months you may have seen information and news articles posted on the IADA-CC website attacking the integrity of a long time autograph collector, dealer and authenticator, Roger Epperson. These articles were malicious in nature and were way outside the scope of anything the IADA/CC stands for. It is for this reason Michael Frost and Richard Scott of the IADA-CC are taking this opportunity to publicly apologize to Roger Epperson and his company REAL. The IADA-CC had been receiving many e-mails daily from collectors and others believed to be trusted  sources. The e-mails were sent to the IADA-CC under many different names and seemed credible at the time to our news director.   We were also sent several links with  information taken from other websites that may not have been true. These e-mails were coming to the club and to the club directors daily. After a fact-finding mission, neither the IADA-CC nor its officers including Michael Frost and Richard Scott have any knowledge of any fraudulent or unethical activities by Roger Epperson. We find the following information that has been posted or emailed to be absolutely FALSE and unjustified. We also have found most of the e-mails to be coming from enemies of the autograph hobby and from fraudulent e-mail addresses with an anti 3rd party authentication agenda.   Roger Epperson authenticated signatures on album covers that were knowingly forged or not signed until after the death of signatories, and charged Dave Smith a/k/a Dave Wakefield for the authentication and then offered to purchase the albums. This statement is false and we found the published allegations to be untrue and the result of false information provided by others to the IADA-CC with intent to damage the character and authentication work of Roger Epperson.  Roger Epperson issued Letters of Authenticity and in many cases never examined the autographs. This statement is false and we found the published allegations to be untrue and the result of false information provided by others to IADA-CC with intent to damage the character and authentication work of Roger Epperson, . c.      An article in IADA-CC news “The Roger Epperson Scandal and investigation, is handed over to the authorities,” statement that there was a Roger Epperson Scandal that was being investigated by authorities, including the FBI, that IADA-CC had received reports of errors in authentication and selling of non-authentic material by ROGER EPPERSON, that a watchdog committee set up to monitor the action of Signed, Sealed & Delivered and “REAL,” two of the Epperson Companies had reported  dozens of  questionable items removed from ROGER EPPERSON’s website, that IADA-CC was receiving reports from major auction companies, eBay and dealers removing Epperson authenticated items from their sites, that ROGER EPPERSON had been officially removed from being a member of IADA-CC. This statement is false and we found the published allegations to be untrue and the result of false information provided by others to IADA-CC with intent to damage the character and authentication work of Roger Epperson and the IADA-CC apologizes. To show good faith and unity the IADA-CC would like to offer Roger Epperson a full life time membership in the IADA-CC.The IADA-CC reorganized with only one goal in mind and only wishes to accomplish this goal. We are here to help promote the autograph world as a wonderful and valuable hobby, create lines of communication among its members, and help to educate our public in making good choices in finding rare and collectible signatures.   We all make mistakes, and for this mistake we sincerely apologize to Roger Epperson.  We wish him all the best and hope we can, in some way, work together in the future. We think Roger Epperson is a valued and important part of the autograph community.  It is very important that we are able to work together or at least communicate. Michael Frost, Roger Epperson and the IADA-CC have a common bond and that is to educate and to help the autograph community. We should have been spending our time and effort fighting the bad guys in the industry and not each other. The infighting among the most important and respected members of the autograph community must stop. The time has come to focus on bringing back a safe environment for autograph collectors.  We sincerely hope that Roger Epperson and the autograph community accept our apology.    Sincerely,             Michael Frost, Richard Scott and The IADA-CC.
