More like "Fake" E. Lee, doesn't even come close to looking like the real thing.

Isn't that a riot? That guy didn't even ATTEMPT to forge the real thing, he just grabbed a pen and wrote JAKE E LEE. It's not EVEN a forgery, it's just plain silly!

But you'd be amazed at all the fake crap people will still buy on ebay. It always pisses me off. I look up signed things on there all the time and at least 90% of the stuff listed is fake. At least the handful of artists I check for pretty regularly are.

Maybe I should just adopt a 'If you can't beat 'em , join 'em' mentality and just get a bunch of old albums by various bands and just sign people's names on them any old way I want and then put them on ebay as 'autographs' and make a few bucks...seems to work for these scumbags.

I know that it is pissing off somebody is raking the cash in on the human naivety. But it has so always been he is and will be, that some are choosing for themselves "simple" form of the fund-raising...

I'm no expert, so to do a comparison of this douchebags item to the real thing, just to get an idea of what Jake's real autograph looks like, I did a search online. But then I thought, "what if what I'm looking at is also a forgery?" How could I be sure?

Hey, did anyone go to the bidding page for this item and scroll down? Supposedly the seller has a photo of him with Jake, but he has "blacked out" his head in the photo. Feeling a little guilty about something, are ya?

I scroll down..;) "blacked out" his head in the photo - it's one matter- and second it's in my opinion an irrelevance of the baulk with autographs Jake and Ozzy which should be from the period Bark at the moon (84) and in a photo one can see Jake from the Badlands period..;) this photo is absurd evidence on "originality" of autographs.. :D

No, it's not really necessary to see the face of the seller, but IMHO blocking your face out of a pic when you're trying to sell an autographed item seems a little shady to me. Something like when a suspect is escorted to or from a police station, they don't want to be recognized so they cover thier faces with coats, jackets, shirts, ect.
