*Author of original report: Roger Caught Red Handed Selling & Authenticating Fake Autographs..
Roger Epperson is not only authenticating forgeries and making this fake autographs --*REAL* He is also and has been buying and selling fake autographs for over 15 years..
He is a danger to the autograph collecting community. He has resently been removed from both the UACC and the IADA. The 2 biggest autograph clubs worldwide.
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.
