That makes some sense. Also, word would soon get round a hospital about a celebrity patient and I imagine it wouldn't be difficult for a nurse or someone similar to get something signed, assuming the patient was not so unwell.

He might have even signed it on New Year's Day - hence the reasoning behind and importance of adding the year. fmitbuib

That's exactly why I think it could be real. Wouldn't a forger likely choose another year - or omit one entirely to circumvent the uncertainties that would arise and that you highlight?

Or to charge even more as one of his last signatures ever.
If I was a forger, I would be certain to personalize all signatures, since most sheep always assume those must be the real ones as forgers wouldn't personalize them.

Talked to a couple of major Karloff collectors yesterday who said they would not touch it, good enough for me.

I have seen a few genuine Karloff Signatures that were dated. This is one I wouldn't touch either, too much wrong with it. Would love to date the still, wonder if there's a pic of the back.. ?

Personalizing is the way to go. I only own one signature and it's personalized: "Dear Tahmmie, All the best, Eddie Cantor." It's on a cloth napkin. I never found out who Tahmmie was but as it's undated it could theoretically have been for me. That's what I tell the boys. I'm very lucky.

As for the Karloff siggie, perhaps he could have slurred his handwriting, added some drool stains; may be instead of a snipe, the daily hospital chart could have been glued to the back?

The last three Daniel Craig Bond movies, the quads currently at ~£1000.  Each.

Heaven forbid.

Bless the little eBay sellers who look at that and price their BINs accordingly.

I think the FRWL still at £1300 is my favorite "value" in the auction so far (or perhaps the Goldfinger at £1800)

Even more telling though are some of these bids that are still reserve not met. If I had a sucker investor on the line willing to pay some of those bids, I wouldn't risk it by saying he didn't meet the reserve which is set at 2-3x FMV.

Ha, nobody wants the Die Another Day poster.
That was a trash movie.

Low print numbers might appeal to a small group of collectors, but I donít think they have a bearing on price. Looking at sales history on expressobeans, I think the last few on eBay have sold around the $4k mark. Although 525 is quite a large run, I think a lot have settled into collections.

Tobin, are you the one who posted that insightful comparison study between prints and posters?  For SW?  I liked that.  I think it was you and you should post it here.

Not Mondo, but other people do European titles.  Check this Durieux for one of my favorite movies, Wenders' Paris, Texas with Nastassja Kinski, the cinematic love of my life (and my avatar).

Thanks T, that was me. Just a few jumbled thoughts, I find it quite an interesting topic so rambled on a bit. As you collect both, Iím glad you agreed with some of it.

 A snip:

Is this the same one from the Kenneth Schacter case some years back (or was that linen-backed, I can't remember)?

Same one, and it's backed.
