LIVE AUTOGRAPH MAGAZINE LIZZIE, Steve Cryken, Chad B, Wascher, GENUINE PSA DNA MICHAEL JACKSON DRAWINGS. Internet
I purchased several drawings from Simon Parrs auctions made by Michael Jackson and posted these on live autograph magazine. Lizzie, Ballroom, Steve Cryken suggested these drawings weren't real, even though Roger Epperson has supplied 30 plus coa's for drawings sold at at least 3 auction houses.   I am a dealer and decided to get these checked out by a well respected company: PSA/DNA. And these have all came back as genuine and I now as of October 25th have received PSA/DNA letters for 9 drawings.   I am trully annoyed at being told by NON experts that what I had wasn't real, even though Roger Epperson (An expert) had certified many others. I didn't know what to believe, but now I do know they are real thanks to PSA/DNA. They have been examined in person by probably the top authenticators in the world.    Live autograph magazine shouldn't be in exisitance as it is a crazy place of misinformation from some knowledgeable people but also a lot of people who if one person says the sky is gray the rest will join in and agree.   None of the people who post on Live autograph are actual authenticators. And they certainly got it wrong this time.   STEVE CRYKEN YOUR SITE IS A JOKE. I have bagged bargains of a life time.

AUTOGRAPH MAGAZINE LIVE AUTOGRAPH MAGAZINE LIVE is lacking in class , civility , and subject matter Newport Beach California
The news stand version of AUTOGRAPH COLLECTORS MAGAZINE was a well written and informative publication. It had CELEBRITY ADDRESSES, BIOGRAPHIES, IN PERSON STORIES, HISTORICAL INFORMATION, Auction News, Show Shedules, Current Happenings.In contrast, the online version lacks all of the above. Autograph Magazine Live has had instead published such literary highlights  as; THE FORGER'S BEST FRIEND by Steven Cyrkin, and STEPHEN _______ IS THE SCUM OF THE EARTH by Herman Darvick.  Interesting reading for some folks but not for me.A majority of AUTOGRAPH MAGAZINE LIVE is depressing and not fun to read. I find most of it quite childish in fact.

Autograph Magazine Autograph Magazine Live Beware of Autograph Magazine; Libel, Harassment, Slander, Defamation, Stalking, Criminal Activity Santa Ana, California
I recently posted an autographed album on AUTOGRAPH MAGAZINE. The album and signatures on it are over twenty years old. I spent a lot of time presenting it with pictures and detailed images. I thought I was going to get some professional feedback on my piece of music memorabilia. Instead I was lambasted, insulted, threatened and acquired several stalkers trying to steal my personal information to use against me. Apparently the site is overrun by cyber bullies hell bent on discrediting and personally attacking anyone that shows any autograph that is not IMO certified whatever that means. If your autograph has not been IMO verified do NOT even mention it on autograph magazine unless you want to be demonized with endless insults, be called every name in the book and have criminals google your name looking for personal information to slander and threaten you with. I'm not exaggerating the site is infested with criminals. Although the attacks were public the administrator Steve Cyrkin did nothing to thwart the hyper aggressive hecklers committing blatant malicious harassment on his blogs and forums. I was forced to withdraw all information I posted on the site within a couple of hours and still there are stalkers harassing me from the site now a week later. This has got to be the most hostile online environment I have ever made the mistake of visiting. Beware Steve Cyrkin does not monitor or control the activity of the members of autograph magazine with any level of responsibility. The site lacks any competent management or integrity. It is a gauntlet of viscous heathens and naysayers who are as about as nasty and vile as anyone can possibly get. I was so personally violated and grossly attacked for showing a record it is my responsibility to warn my online community the dangers they face by visiting and posting on autograph magazine. The administrator offered no apology only insult to injury so it appears he is quite pleased with the way his members treat newcomers to the autograph collecting and sharing scene. If you are looking for information or advice on the hobby of autograph collecting I would strongly advise you to avoid autograph magazine at all costs. it is a very unpleasant place to visit and a potentially dangerous place to disclose personal information. Utilize any alternate venue. They are much more rewarding and the administrators keep tabs on the hostile users. I found half a dozen alternate sites better than autograph magazine. Sincerely yours, Autographed Album Owner

ROGER EPPERSON Signed, Sealed & Delivered - Autograph Memorabilia Autograph Alert truth, Autograph Magazine Live, RockinHouston.com I got a signed Ronald Reagan White House card from roger Epperson many years ago. he did not honor the money back guarenteed by himself. Houston, Texas
I bought this Ronald Reagan signed White House card from Roger Epperson many many years ago.  He told me that he got it from a friend that knew President Ronald Reagan.  This may have been the truth but now I try to sell it and the man told me it isn't the real deal. I told that to Roger Epperson and he told me that he only sells music items now and that he never sold me the Reagan card.  I honestly can't believe that this liar said that.  I remember that I bought it from him off a list that he mailed out before he had his web address.

Autograph Magazine Steve Cyrkin, Steve Cyrkin lied about document examiners being raided by the FBI in the American Royal Arts law suit against Cyrkin! Cyrkiin would do anything to ruin a competitor. Costa Mesa Internet
Steve Cyrkin of Autograh Magazine set out to destroy his competition. My clients decided to sue him and his flunkies for tortious interferrence and unfair business practices. Cyrkin continues his libelous and slanderous commentaries about his competitiors in general. All he has alleged about those he has slandered has since been proven false. Cyrkin, Eperson and his band of Kool-Aid drinking buddies have been sued countless times yet still proceed to make slanderous comments.  At the time of this writing I am preparing a brief that will put this maniac out of business once and for all if the content of his blog is not cleaned up.

Ripoff Report’s discussions with RR Autograph Auction have uncovered a 30 year company philosophy of total client satisfaction. This means that clients can expect that RR Autograph Auction will work diligently towards finding a mutually satisfactory resolution to any complaints or concerns. RR Autograph Auction listens carefully to client concerns and sees them as an opportunity to learn from past mistakes and become more efficient as a company in offering some of the world’s rarest and interesting autographs, manuscripts, memorabilia and artifacts. RR Autograph Auction’s owner, Mr. Bob Eaton, has informed us that satisfying customers and giving them what they paid for is their #1 priority. As a successful businessman, Mr. Eaton agrees with Ripoff Report, that it is critical to listen to his clients and respond properly and that any communication with a client is an opportunity to deliver exceptional customer service. Because an auction is really just establishing a marketplace for a buyer and seller to conduct business. Mr. Eaton understands that communication and problem solving is the only way for a successful enterprise like RR Autograph Auction to thrive, both now and for many years to come. Another top executive of the company told us that Mr. Eaton's personal business philosophy is based on relationships, relationships that have been developed since 1980 with both buyers and sellers of authentic material. RR Autograph Auction's mission statement says it all: Deliver Remarkable Results to our clients. Be Rare, Reputable, and Reliable. Some of the other things Ripoff Report learned in the course of its investigation: typical customer feedback reads: “RR Auction quickly replied to my questions and fully answered them. They take customer service very seriously. We are very pleased with the responsiveness that he and his employees show us. They are serious about meeting commitments, and deliver on all their promises. Another satisfied customer said, Thanks again, you always provide the very best customer service so I can make the most informed and responsible bidding decisions!Ripoff Report Verified™ .. part of Ripoff Report Corporate Advocacy Business Remediation & Customer Satisfaction Program.A program that benefits the consumer, assures them of complete satisfaction and confidence when doing business with a member business.. The information provided in this report is based on comments made by Robert Livingston and Bobby Eaton in an interview held by a third party verification company with no biases toward RR Autograph Auction. RR Auction in Amherst, New Hampshire is an auction house that deals with specialized merchandise such as high-end documents (like autographs from historical or celebrated figures) and memorabilia. According to their representative, RRA handles 22 auctions per year, and last year they handled over 20,000 items. They maintain authenticators on staff in addition to using third-party authenticators to verify each item before it is auctioned. RRA is a thirty year-old business that the representative says has been built on a tradition of reputable, reliable, and authentic items. The representative believes that their company is set apart from competitors by their leadership in the niche auction houses through excellent customer service and reliable, authentic auctions. They offer a lifetime guarantee of authenticity on each item, and because they handle “almost all aspects” of the process in-house, they can cater auctions to the markets which combine sellers and buyers who have the same interests. RRA receives leads for both sellers and buyers. The majority of the leads RRA receives come from sellers who have an existing relationship with the auction house, and the remainder from RRA’s reputation and word of mouth. RRA maintains a database of buyers and collectors and they estimate that their database encompasses 80% of the existing collectors, and the other 20% of buyers are achieved through direct marketing and sales leads. The RRA representative states that they are strictly an auction house, and have no direct sales venues. RRA attributes their success to their hard work over the last 30 years; the sellers have become accustomed to receiving top price for their memorabilia, and the owner is very proud that checks are always sent out on time. The buyers know RRA utilizes third-parties to assist in verifying the authenticity of items, and “they have come to expect quality collectibles vetted for authenticity, complete with a certificate of authenticity and a lifetime authenticity guarantee.” All auction items must pass rigorous tests to verify authenticity, and items that are not verified beyond doubt will be rejected by RRA. Additionally, both bidders and sellers are verified before they are able to participate in auctions, because they only want serious buyers and sellers. In regard to customer follow-up, RRA employs one full-time person who is strictly dedicated to customer service. The RRA representative states that the “executive level” is always available to the customer, which seems to denote that the owners themselves will speak with the customers, and says that they strive for consistent communication through the entire process. Weekly customer service meetings are held to discuss all the aspects of the operation. During the actual auction, the seller is “kept apprised” of the status of their item. When the item is purchased, RRA says they keep in constant communication with the buyer from the time the package is shipped until it is received by the purchaser. ALL COMPANIES GET COMPLAINTS, BUT HOW THE COMPANY HANDLES THOSE COMPLAINTS, SEPARATES GOOD BUSINESSES FROM THE REST. Occasionally, RRA receives complaints about variations between the item and the item’s original description, because often the item itself is described but not the frame or case that encloses it. Sometimes, buyers will doubt the authenticity of an item and wish to be refunded. For instance, RRA just resolved an issue with an item that was signed by all the inductees of the Baseball Hall of Fame, and had been verified by a third party. However, the buyer employed a second third-party verifier who refused to confirm or deny the authenticity, so the buyer wanted their money back. RR auction refunded the buyer the full purchase price of $20,000 at their own expense, without involving the original seller. RRA’s standard practice is to “listen empathetically” to their customer’s concerns, and work with the customer to ensure they are satisfied. Their customer service motto is always, “Yes! Now what is the question?” They feel that some processes they need to change involve utilizing an expanded network of third-party sources for authenticity, and they want to see an improvement in their ability to answer bidder questions within 24 hours. They feel that, currently, they can only answer 80% within 24 hours and the other 20% within 48 hours. RRA feels that their entire executive branch knows their internal controls must be continually monitored. LIFETIME GUARANTEE OF AUTHENTICITY RRA acknowledges that some individuals have complained about feeling deceived about the authenticity of their purchases. RRA responded by making it clear that their guarantee for authenticity is for the lifetime of the item. Purchasers who are concerned need to contact RRA and supply them the proof of purchase (such as a receipt, bidder number, or cancelled check). Item returns are accepted on an item that is deemed to be inauthentic; the purchaser simply needs to contact the auction house. At this time, no customer has contacted RRA with proof that their item was inauthentic. While they want to work for a resolution, they point out that the complaining party has to share in that desire, as well. RRA is very proud of their reputation, their employee’s skills, and the abilities that have lead them to be industry leaders. They believe, in their business, that reputation is everything, and they assist their customers during the process and even years later. In response to their involvement with Ripoff Report’s Corporate Advocacy Business Remediation and Customer Satisfaction Program, they understand that Ripoff report is “there for the consumer”, and they believe in excellent customer service. They hope that by working with the Ripoff Report staff, they can understand the source of complaints against them. RRA wants to determine if the sources of the complaints are authentic, and if not, how they can prevent the false complaints from being so detrimental to their reputation. If the reports are valid, they would like to use Ripoff Report as a third-party mediator to bring a resolution to the complaints. RR Auction / Statements from the owner Bob Eaton. ” I want to always try to convey an attitude of yes when advising RR Auction's customer service representatives. When a client asks us for something, we always want to answer yes and together figure out a way to make things work for everyone. We are very proud to represent the historic materials we offer at auction and we want to make sure we are proper stewards and that our clients are as well. Most importantly, this business has been successfully built because we have a passion for authenticity. You can be assured that what you are buying from RR Auction is the real deal. RR Auction’s team of authenticators have expressed that they feel very comfortable working with the auction house because of their commitment to holding ethical auctions. One authenticator at RR Auction stated I have seen Mr. Eaton choose not offer items that he could not back with his 100% money back guarantee. Even though the item was worth $100,000 and I told him I was 99% sure it was authentic, yet he chose not to accept it because of the 1% chance. RR Auction is very conservative in what they will accept, unlike other auction houses ” RR Auction takes employee satisfaction seriously as well. Employee feedback and surveys reveal comments such as this: RR Auction provides a very positive environment and they empower me to make decisions every day. Each day brings me new opportunities for suggestions and improvements are encouraged. Bob Eaton and the other executives are truly concerned about our contribution to RR Auction and are providing growth opportunities for us. Bob takes the time to listen and communicate with employees and customers. Ripoff Report was pleased to learn that RR Auction’s past and current approach to business is focused on its pledge to total commitment towards client and employee satisfaction. STATED IMPROVEMENTS FROM RR AUCTION. RR Auction understands that with rapid growth, organizational systems sometimes get stretched too thin and that customer service is usually the first department to be effected. Recently, we have hired another full customer service executive as well as removed systemic bottlenecks to improve communication between our clients and ourselves. RR Auction recognizes that complaints posted on Ripoff Report (whether true or not) are issues that need to be addressed, not ignored. If handled correctly, complaints can be valuable learning opportunities. With the feedback generated by Ripoff Report’s investigation, RR Auction has made organizational changes allowing its clients and employees a more streamlined approach to problem resolution and a commitment to a great client experience. In summary, after our investigation, which included discussions with Mr. Eaton and many of his past and current associates, Ripoff Report is convinced that RR Auction is committed to quality delivery of services resulting in total client satisfaction.

Autograph Live Magazine Steve Cyrkin, Christopher Williams Continue to Bash Internet sellers of autographs by autneticators not named PSA or JSA. Cyrkin is a large stock holder in PSA/DNA and has a vested interest in keeping other smaller authenticators off the market place. internet
The following is my experience in dealing with the Website autographlivemagazine.com.   This site continues to attack ebay sellers who sell autographs.  They say they expose fake autographs of all sorts, espeially Mickey Mantle, Ted Williams, and Joe Dimaggio.   According to this site, Gai, GFA, Drew Max, Chris Morales, My Favorite Players, and a slew of other, smaller authenticators, are authenticating forgeries.  They pull sellers photos right off ebay, without permission.   There favorite hitman Chris Williams from NJ, is the modt notorious at this.  He has no scrupols, and no proof that these others are authenticating forgeries.  Just his opinion, and because he has the powerful voice on autographlive magazine, he has damaged the reputation of many honest sellers.  As anyone knows autograph authentication, is a third party opinion.  As I have come to find out, Steve Cyrkin, the founder of this site, is one of the largest stock holders in PSA/dNA.  Does it not beg the question that he would have a invested interest in keeping smaller authenticators off the market.    The less competition, the more business for PSA.  The more business for PSA, the more money Steve Cyrkin makes.    In short mistakes are made by authenticators of all stripes, even by PSA/DNA and also JSA.  So if you sold an autograph on Ebay, not authenticated by PSA or JSA, good chance you will make this site, with your Ebay photos, and your username being pasted all over the internet as selling forgeries, when merely, it is just their opinion.  I do wonder about the motives of Autographlivemagazine.  Is it to protect the hobby as they say, or is it to keep smaller authenticators of the market, in order to have monopoly and make money for PSA.

RR Auction is very conservative in what they will accept, unlike other auction houses ” RR Auction takes employee satisfaction seriously as well. Employee feedback and surveys reveal comments such as this: RR Auction provides a very positive environment and they empower me to make decisions every day. Each day brings me new opportunities for suggestions and improvements are encouraged. Bob Eaton and the other executives are truly concerned about our contribution to RR Auction and are providing growth opportunities for us. Bob takes the time to listen and communicate with employees and customers. Ripoff Report was pleased to learn that RR Auction’s past and current approach to business is focused on its pledge to total commitment towards client and employee satisfaction. STATED IMPROVEMENTS FROM RR AUCTION. RR Auction understands that with rapid growth, organizational systems sometimes get stretched too thin and that customer service is usually the first department to be effected. Recently, we have hired another full customer service executive as well as removed systemic bottlenecks to improve communication between our clients and ourselves. RR Auction recognizes that complaints posted on Ripoff Report (whether true or not) are issues that need to be addressed, not ignored. If handled correctly, complaints can be valuable learning opportunities. With the feedback generated by Ripoff Report’s investigation, RR Auction has made organizational changes allowing its clients and employees a more streamlined approach to problem resolution and a commitment to a great client experience. In summary, after our investigation, which included discussions with Mr. Eaton and many of his past and current associates, Ripoff Report is convinced that RR Auction is committed to quality delivery of services resulting in total client satisfaction.

Autograph Aert - Stephen Koscals Stephen Koscals autograph forger Internet
Stephen Koschal writing a blog about being ethical and an honest , skilled autograph authenticator is like Tiger Woods writing a blog about Fidelity. Knowing of this individual for many years and having done business with him I can tell you first hand he is one of the most unethical, unscrupulous and Hateful individuals you will ever meet. Ask 100 long time collectors and dealers who know of him and the overwhelming majority will most surely either say no comment or fill your ears with abominable opinions and experiences. I was personally ripped off by this seedy individual about 8 years ago. So now he writes a blog called Autograph Alert. The irony is he alerts endless attacks mostly reputable people and companies and then he will CREDIT known less-ethical authenticators. You get the impression he sits waits for the RARE occasion a reputable authenticator makes a mistake. The world is his enemy. And, all you have to do is look at his blog and watch the venom flow against the same organizations in almost every blog post of which he has decided to make his enemies (or his source for emotionally troubled relieve). Stephen Koschal demonstrates characteristics of a highly troubled individual. The list of evidence could be a mile long but if you search his name in Google you will discover countless people both personal and professional that will attest to bizarre, unbalanced behavior Stephen Koschal has demonstrated for many many years. The UACC Now he has this blog autograph alert that seems another outlet to release his psychopathic anger. He has been banned by the two major autograph collector organizations (one of which he co- founded AFTER he was banned and censured from the UACC). I am no psychiatrist but when you look at his historical behavior this is indeed appears to be a highly self destructive person. He seems to have an insatiable need to spread venom. Apparently from what I have read online this is a guy who will spend thousands hiring a lawyer to defend his slanderous blog but has been on the run for 25 years from his ex-wife and children to avoid paying child support. What else needs to be said? See: http://www.autographdealernews.com/Articles.aspx?article=11 I think if you were to survey 100 long time autograph collectors and dealers who have knowledge of stephen koschals 99 of them would concur this is a highly troubled and emotional disturbed individual and an endless supply of hate and anger. Just Google his name and , well you'll get what I m talking about. Read his blog autograph alert where he has a bizarre record of attacking what 99.9% of the autograph industry will concur are REPUTABLE people, PLUS in one recent posting (Dec 9, 2009) he blasts a long time very reputable dealer AND Amazingly gives credit to a very well known LESS competent autograph authenticator. Bizarre, crazy?, yes maybe, But NO surprise coming from stephen koschal. And, another irony is when you Google him, you will see a lot of information about those claiming to WITNESS him producing Forgeries Himself See : http://www.autographdealernews.com/Articles.aspx?article=20 http://www.ripoffreport.com/internet-fraud/sportsigmaven/sportsigmaven-autographalert-988dc.htm (((REDACTED))) CLICK here to see why Rip-off Report, as a matter of policy, deleted either a phone number, link or e-mail address from this Report.

I sent the guitar back and and received my money back. I do have the paper work and dicumitation on the fall signatures. This company is knowingly selling guitars, albums, pick guards, drum heads with fake autographs on them. Please do not be scammed like I was. If it sounds to good to be true, then it usually is.

Fred Attacks IsItReal Autograph Site Fred from Philadelphia Attacks IsItReal Autograph Site Philadelphia Pennsylvania
There is a web site that makes genuine attempts to help collectors of autographs AVOID the ever growing world of autograph forgeries. It has literally become an epidemic in the autograph industry with collectors being scammed by sophisticated autograph forgers. One web site that is really the first to uncover some of these forgery operations is the site www.isitreal.com. This site hosts a forum where many collectors both experienced and inexperienced post their opinions on certain eBay sellers and also highly suspect autograph dealers. And, not just questionable dealer but dealers that have an enormous track record of consistent forgeries. Last month Fred from Philadelphia went on the attack against this web site , in particular attacking certain posters. I ask Fred one question. What if tyou were more specific and gave us some examples of your outrage? Why not provide some specific examples and let's dissect the analysis. Why Fred are you so emotional over one poster in the forum? Did he/she hit a particular nerve. I guess we can spew a generic attack but it sure would be helpful to know exactly WHAT posting in the forum you question. In other words, what exactly was is that forgerywatch said that you question? It is a matter of an inaccurate analysis on his/her part or is it merely that you disapprove of a certain unscrupulous autograph dealer being uncovered for collectors before that dealer continues scamming collectors. You ask WHY don't posters provide their contact information? Maybe I could shed some light on that. If I am an autograph forger selling massive forgeries on a web site and someone questions my scam, what do you think my reaction will be? Attack! No matter if that person has a legitimate complaint. Think about it, what really would be the disposition of a dishonest person who is reduced to committing a criminal act to make a living, i.e. selling forgeries. WHY would anyone want to engage on that level when a rational response would be highly unlikely, if not impossible? So Fred give us some examples and maybe we can offer some analysis. As the old adage, Don't shoot the messenger, without deeply analyzing the message. Remember this site is to help people form gettign scammed, it's not a place to attack anyone. I can assure you , the evidence has to be overwhelming before a complaint is made. Nofearman NY, New YorkU.S.A.

AUTOGRAPH MAGAZINE LIVE VERY MISSLEADING INFORMATION ABOUT AUTOGRAPHS SANTA ANNA California
 Autograph collecting can be a very rewarding hobby. In the mid 1980's, the U.A.C.C. (Universal Autograph Collectors Club) was very active in promoting autograph collecting and educating novice collectors. The U.A.C.C. had shows throughout the country. The U.A.C.C. had a wonderful magazine that was sent to all of their active members, and it was called THE PEN & QUILL.Today, the U.A.C.C. is in financial trouble due to a low membership .  The PEN&QUILL has been cheapened greatly in an effort to cut costs. The main reason membership is down is due to a dimminished interest in AUTOGRAPHS as a hobby.Despite the dimminished interest in Autograph Collecting,  there are many reliable sources for buying autographs.  I could name 125 autograph dealers that are honest and reliable. I hesitate to name them here because this is a complaint forum. I will get to my complaint, but I need to lay out some back ground information first.There was a time when many books were widely available to collectors. Autograph collectors used to educate themselves. It does not take a rocket scientist to authenticate an autograph. Knowledeable collectors knew what to look for and what to avoid. The pitfalls to collecting autographs were always Printed Signatures, Autopen Signatures, and Secretariarial Signatures. Forgeries always, and still do, exist primarily in autographs in the higher price ranges. If you know what to look for, forgeries can easily be avoided. There are very few skilled forgers and to practice a signature is quite time consuming and the result is never perfect enough to fool a self educated collector.In the mid to late 1990's , a dealer (will not name him) began to point fingers at various dealers.  Fraudulently pointed out authentic items in others dealer's inventory calling them FAKE, but they were not fake. Anonymous mail began to circulate to various U.A.C.C. members , defaming a well respected dealer from Texas. ( The UACC sent out an annual book of names and addresses of UACC members). After a while a considerable amount of anonymous mail was being received by UACC members, with most of it defaming and slandering various autograph dealers. Most were post marked from Massachusettes, Connecticut,New York, and New Hampshire.There was a cry out for a so-called third party authenticator. Third Party Authentication may indeed sound like a great idea, but can never work for the very same reason that TRUE COMMUNISM can never work, HUMAN NATURE. The Roman Empire Fell due to HUMAN NATURE. Greed takes over.In the late 1990s PSA DNA emerged. PSA DNA is a Third Party Authentication Company. Did they have problems ? Yes, from the very begining. Check out You Tube , Check Out HAULS OF SHAME, Check out AUTOGRAPH NEWS LIVE (not to be confused with AUTOGRAPH MAGAZINE LIVE !) To this day people complain that basballs signed in front of them, in person, at baseball card shows are frequently rejected when sent in for authentication. Lazer copies of signatures have been encapsulated and sold as authentic by PSA, for example a number of green Ty Cobb signatures from a laser printer are currently on the market (be careful with PSA encapsulated items).Autograph Magazine Live is a site that is managed by Steven Cyrkin. Recently Mr. Cyrkin was sued for libel for an article that he wrote and published on his site, the suit was dropped when the article was removed from the site. Autograph magazine strays from the truth, supports PSA DNA , and gives accolades to no less than five dealers from the New York,Connecticut, Massachusetts, and New Hampshire area, while defaming ALL OTHER AUTOGRAPH DEALERS IN EXISTANCE TODAY ! The five dealers that are praised on a daily basis on Autograph Magazine Live, as well as Mr. Cyrkin all have a vested interest in PSA ! The information presented on Autograph Magazine Live is never positive, and always very dark and depressing to read. Some information on that site has shades of truth, but most of it is slanderous and defamatory toward honest and reliable dealers and auction houses.Autograph collecting can be fun. If you see a PSA authenticated autograph then by all means do a little research on your own and do not accept a C.O.A at face value ever. I have see both fake and authentic items with C.O.As included. Enjoy collecting and avoid Autograph Magazine Live. The U.A.C.C. still has a small site and the U.A.C.C. has a list of about a hundred U.A.C.C. recomended dealers. I also know of quite a few honest autograph dealers, who no longer belong to any organizations at all.Thank You for taking the time to read this. I have been very careful to only present facts and opinion on this site.

Steve Cyrkin Autograph Magazine Live Anti-Semite Owns 1,000,000 shares of PSA/DNA Self-Hating Jew, Internet
Anti-Semite Steve Cyrkin is well known in the autograph industry for being a self hating Jew. Yes,an anti-semite.  This is well documented.  Cyrkin sent an email to another  Jewish business leader calling him a  'k*ke.Shortly after the email was published, most of the legitimate autograph industry abandoned Cyrkin.  The President of the Universal Autograph Collectors Club stated that he believed Cyrkin must have had a mental breakdown. Many others demanded Cyrkin to apologize for his disgusting choice of words. An autograph organization has asked Cyrkin on multiple occasions to apologize. Steve Cyrkin, refuses to do so, therefore standing by hisextremely hateful words. People like Steve Cyrkin will likely not be arrested for his amateur opinions. He admits he knows little about autographs. For his actions in banning those members on his Autograph Magazine Live blog that disagree with him, Cyrkin has paid a heavy toll.   Yes, the criminal type dealers who knowingly want their fake autographs passed as genuine and are willing to pay for this service . Fraud is committed when Racketeering, Business Collusion, embezzlement, doctoring light material with ink without revealing such, shill bidding, publishing false auction reports, etc. is done. You will not learn the truth from Steve Cyrkins Autographmagazine.com Why would you? He is one of the largest stockholders in PSA/DNA , a company being investigated by the FBI for fraud. He is also co-founder of the parent company Collectors Universe (CLCT). Self-Hating Jew  Steve Cyrkin can create an illusion and delete and suspend all members who speak the truth on his site but he is no match for American Justice, as his few criminal type friends are being brought down by this system while he controls a blog site through editing, deletion, banning and removing valuable information that may lead to the truth. Totally corrupt!.           Why does a company like PSA/DNA that has a failing grade from the Better Business Bureau get promotion by Steve Cyrkin?  Is it because he owns Stock in it?  Is it because he co-founded it?  YOU THINK!  His voice should be the last opinion one should trust because he profits by promoting it.  Why would any company support or promote a company so many have problems with?  Could it be because those companies cannot authenticate autographs on their own and have some sort of a deal with PSA?  What counts is what customers that have used them have to say.  No other opinion   The autograph hobby is still in an uproar over Steve Cyrkin.  Many mayremember not long ago his autograph business Starbrite being shut downbecause of a large number of forgeries in its inventory. Shortly thereafter,Cyrkin closed down his Autograph magazine.  Many in the legitimateautograph hobby abandoned this autograph tyrant.    Steve Cyrkin recently created a website  Autograph Magazine Live where he bashes those who he feels has exposed him. He also bashes legitimate autograph dealers who refuses to use the services of PSA/DNA,  a company Cyrkin helped found and he is still a major stockholder in this company. A collector only needs to look at the few left who advertise on this site and discover they have either sold more forgeries that anyone else in the hobby or they are not respected.Numerous collectors and dealers feel if someone advertises on this site, you better do your own homework on that seller. Many will remember how Steve Cyrkin was told by experts that his inventory was chock full of forgeries. This forced Cyrkin to close down his website for years and he posted that his website was under construction. Cyrkin wasnt fooling anyone. The industry basically walked away from Cyrkin forcing his autograph business to shut down and eventually because of lack of support he had no option other than closing down the magazine. Each time a blogger on Steve Cyrkins site makes him out to look like a fool and/or a fraud he attacks their personal lives. http://live.autographmagazine.com/forum/topics/lyndon-b-johnson-lady-bird-johnson-signed-photo-secretarial?xg_source=activity&id=3524372%3ATopic%3A212338&page=8#comments http://www.autographnewslive.com/using-joomla/extensions/components/content-component/article-category-list/85-autograph-news-live-s-owner-steve-cyrkin-is-a-well-documented-anti-semite http://live.autographmagazine.com/profiles/blogs/fbi-investigating-american?id=3524372%3ABlogPost%3A37856&page=11     If that doesn't say how dishonest and ridiculous he really is...nothing does.
